Today marks a special milestone in Epcot history: the 25th anniversary of “IllumiNations.”
The 12-minute, three-part show takes place on World Showcase Lagoon and tells the history of our planet through music, fireworks, lighted torches, and more.
The nighttime show originally debuted at the park January 30, 1988, as a replacement for “Laserphonic Fantasy.” Over the years, two special versions of the show have been created. “IllumiNations 24” debuted for the 25th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort in 1996, while “IllumiNations 2000: Reflections of Earth” launched in 1999 in honor of the upcoming millenium celebration. The most current version of the show, which can be seen at the park nightly, is “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.”
