VIDEO: Watch the Final Performance of “Epcot Forever” Nighttime Spectacular at EPCOT

“Epcot Forever”, which debuted nearly two years ago on October 1st, 2019, has performed its final show this evening at EPCOT. While only actually showing for 10 of the last 24 months due to COVID-19 closures and entertainment reductions, the show was always intended to be a temporary bridge between “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” and the long-delayed debut of Harmonious—which will finally occur tomorrow.


“Epcot Forever” was designed to work around the installation of the five “Harmonious” barges, something “IllumiNations” was not equipped to do with its centralized elements.


The show once featured a jet-ski driven kite segment, but it was removed when the show returned in July of 2021 after being on hiatus due to COVID-19 cutbacks. A kite-focused daytime show called “KiteTails” will soon debut at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, perhaps explaining the lack of kites in the revised “Epcot Forever”.
