Are you planning on visiting Walt Disney World during the month of September? If so, you may be in for a special treat!

During the entire month of September, on select nights, Epcot will be testing out portions of their new nighttime spectacular show coming soon to the park.

Guests that are (or will be) staying at the Epcot resort area may hear loud noises or the use of pyrotechnics on certain nights throughout this month. Resorts such as Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club or Disney’s Boardwalk could be in viewing areas of the tests. Tests are set to start once Epcot closes for the day and will conclude by midnight.

You can check out some of the “Epcot Forever” testing currently being done in the Tweet below.

As Inside the Magic has previously reported, Walt Disney World is ending the almost 20 year run of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth as Epcot’s nighttime spectacular and replacing it with the limited-time spectacular “Epcot Forever”. This all-new nighttime show will include a mixture of fireworks, music, lighting, lasers and special effects and will take guests on a journey through the past, present and future of Epcot.
Epcot is currently undergoing a lot of changes. During the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products panel at the D23 Expo, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Parks, Experiences and Products, and Zach Riddley of Walt Disney Imagineering announced several big projects coming to Epcot. Guests can look forward to three brand new lands replacing what is now known as Future World as well as the iconic Spaceship Earth also getting an update.
As Walt Disney once said, “[Epcot] will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing and testing and demonstrating new materials and systems.”
The new “Epcot Forever” nighttime spectacular officially debuts on October 1, 2019 at Epcot and we cannot wait to see it.
