After nearly 20 years of delighting Epcot guests through music, fireworks, fire torches and more, Disney recently announced that “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” will have its final showing on September 30th, 2019. We now know that “Epcot Forever”, its limited run replacement, will debut right after on October 1st, 2019… but what of the often-forgotten permanent replacement, “A Celebration of Disney Music”? We now have the opening timeframe for that too.
If all goes according to plan, Epcot Forever will conclude in May 2020, with “A Celebration of Disney Music” debuting that same month, just in time for the summer.
“A Celebration of Disney Music” will feature large floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, kites with special effects, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, and lasers. “Epcot Forever” will continue its limited-time run into 2020 as the park endures its ongoing, multi-year transformation.
Disney has yet to announce the “A Celebration of Disney Music” debut date.
