After almost 20 years, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, the iconic Epcot fireworks display, will come to an end, according to a Walt Disney World announcement. The long-run show debuted in 1999 as part of the resort’s Millenium Celebration.
This news comes after rumors previously predicted that the display would be replaced. Disney revealed that while the current fireworks display will run its last showing at the end of summer 2019, an all-new nightly entertainment will take its place “immediately following the conclusion of IllumiNations.” The new fireworks spectacular is part of Epcot’s multi-year transformation.
Disney has not yet announced any information about Epcot’s upcoming nighttime show.
