Good-bye “Illuminations – Refections of Earth”. Originally debuting on January 30, 1988, “Illuminations – Refections of Earth” has run continuously at Disney’s Epcot Theme Park for 31 years.  That run will be coming to an end on August, 30, 2019.

With major changes coming to the Epcot Park, a new, temporary, night-time show will begin on September 1.

“Illuminations, Reflections of Earth” is a 12 minute show with fire, lasers, water and fireworks that, in 3 parts, tells the story of earth coming together.

At one time, the huge globe that is brought out into the middle of the show was the largest TV screen on earth.

Although I am saddened to see “Illuminations – Refections of Earth” leave Epcot, I am excited to see what Disney has in store for us when the new show opens in 2020.
