Guests staying at the nearby resorts, including Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, Disney’s Yacht Club, and Disney’s Beach Club, may hear the rehearsals taking place. The tests are scheduled from around 11:45 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and may include bursts of fireworks, lasers, and smoke/fog effects.

The rehearsals could be for the return of “EPCOT Forever,” which will be back temporarily on April 3 after “Harmonious” closes and until a new nighttime spectacular debuts. The unsightly “Harmonious” barges will also be removed from the World Showcase lagoon.

In October of 2022, we reported that it was rumored that Disney will incorporate the use of drones in their new nighttime show at EPCOT, following the great success of Disney D-Light at Disneyland Paris for its 30th anniversary.

“EPCOT Forever” debuted in October 2019 with the end of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth

The nighttime show honored the park’s 37-year musical heritage, with a spectacular display of fireworks, music, lighting, lasers, and special effects set to revamped versions of iconic songs from classic EPCOT attractions such as “Journey Into Imagination,” “Spaceship Earth,” “Soarin’,” “Tapestry of Nations,” and “Universe of Energy.” The show was designed to pay tribute to the past, present, and future of EPCOT.

If you’re not familiar with the show or want to re-watch it before it comes back, watch our video of the “final” performance below.
