Tonight’s livestream of Illuminations by Disney Parks Live was filled with big announcements, like the debut date of Epcot Forever and the final presentation of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. But even more interesting to see was the special concept art that was released.

Viewers also got to see exclusive test footage of the jet skis and special effects kites that will be used throughout the show. Take a look!

Take a look of the full video, with the special effects kites in action:

The final showing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth takes place on September 30th, with the debut of Epcot Forever taking place the following night on October 1st.

The limited-time show will be a celebration of the past, present and future of Epcot, built around the magical soundtrack guests have come to know and love at the park. After it launches October 1st, Epcot Forever will continue into 2020, when it will then make way for the debut of the next epic Epcot nighttime spectacular as part of the park’s multi-year transformation.
