After a dazzling 20-year run, we’ll soon be bidding a fond farewell to “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” at Epcot. Begun as part of the Millennium Celebration, which started in October 1999, this nighttime spectacular has touched the hearts and minds of millions of guests over the past two decades. Personally, this show is very special to me and my wife, Laurel. We saw it on our first date back in 2000 and later got married at Epcot, so every time we see the show, it brings back a flood of memories.

If you love “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” too, you still have a few more nights left to catch this classic Epcot show before its final performance on September 30, 2019. So gather around World Showcase Lagoon for your last chance to enjoy this breathtaking display of lasers, lights and fireworks – and don’t forget to pick up “IllumiNations” merchandise as well (check out this previous blog post for details).

With the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival taking place right now, we’ll definitely be heading out to the park to make a new memory with “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,” and we’re looking forward to the October 1 debut of the all-new fireworks spectacular, “Epcot Forever.”

I hope you’ll join us in embracing the future… and all the magical possibilities to come. What are your favorite memories of “IllumiNations,” and what are you looking forward to with “Epcot Forever?” Let us know in the comments!
