BREAKING: New Epcot and Character-Based Nighttime Shows Will Replace IllumiNations in 2019 and 2020
An exciting announcement we’ve been waiting for regarding the new nighttime shows at Epcot just came out from Destination D! Bob Chapek has shared an update on the new permanent show set to open at Epcot in 2020 as part of the multi-year transformation of Epcot.
The new nighttime spectacular, called “A Celebration of Disney Music,” will show how Disney music inspires people around the globe, and will feature large floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, kites with special effects, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, and lasers.
In another announcement that will please long-time Epcot fans, there will be a limited-time experience, called “Epcot Forever,” which will debut in fall 2019 and will feature classic Epcot tunes. As we reported earlier, this will replace IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth until the new nighttime spectacular debuts.
