Behind the Scenes: Epcot Prepares to Welcome New Epcot Forever Nighttime Show Next Week!

Epcot Forever makes its debut next Tuesday, October 1 following the “retirement” of IllumiNations as the park’s nighttime spectacular. After getting a few looks behind the scenes at the music of the show, now we get to see some footage of the actual show!

The show blends fireworks, lighting, lasers, and choreographed special effects kites as it tells the tale of Epcot’s past, present, and future.

  1. So excited to see something new! I loved Illuminations but the part with the globe was long and drawn out with nothing else going on. I thought the one they had before the current one was much better. I hope this one blows them all away.
