Just six days after the final showing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, aerial images from Twitter user @bioreconstruct have shown the remains of the former Earth Globe, which is currently being dismantled backstage at Epcot.

During WDWNT’s very own Reflections of Forever panel on IllumiNations, many attendees asked Imagineers and creators present regarding the future of the Earth Globe, but even then the destiny of the nighttime spectacular’s illuminated centerpiece was still uncertain.
It is still unknown whether Disney will repurpose these parts for the show’s permanent replacement, HarmonioUS, which will debut after Epcot Forever’s short-lived run, or whether these iconic globe pieces are destined for scrap metal.
If this has you feeling nostalgic for “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth”, you can re-live the final showing in the video below:
