A very interesting new rumor has been posted over on Screamscape. It talks about the possibility of an extensive refurbishment of Epcot's IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth nighttime spectacular.

Here's the rumor from Screamscape:

According to the latest whispers around Epcot, there is early talk about a possible new version of the nightly Illuminations show in the works. According to some of the rumors, the current Reflections of Earth video globe will be retired, but the new show will feature even more fireworks than the current show. Going back a bit to the roots of the original Illuminations show, the new show is said to tell the unique stories from the different cultures around the World Showcase pavilions.


What do you think, is it time that IllumiNations was replaced with something else?

I preferred the old show more than this one :anxious:

I think it needs to be updated every so often to keep things fresh :)

I would love it if they would bring back an afternoon parade :D

I can't remember when the old fireworks show finished I really cant :/ I feel like it's been the current one forever.

Just like I can't remember anything before wishes even though I remember wishes starting :lol:

me too :( I know so many people hated it and there's something to be said for the pureness of the original but what can I say, I liked it.

well it isn't coming back. There were photos of it lieing broken in a field somewhere after they took it down :( so nope, it's gone for good.

...but I liked it. I know most people didn't and I like/respect the purity of the EPCOT ball as it was meant to be. For me though, I love seeing it sparkle away at night time

That's the thing, I don't go to the parks during the day, it's all night time visits for me so I guess it never looked like a dull addition, it always sparkled away :)
