Workshopping two titles: "Epcot4Ever: This ended up costing more than Guardians and Moana Combined" "Epcot 4Ever: Missing IllumiNations Yet?" And less. But, more cupcakes.

Epcot Forever 4.0 incoming. Bets on more / less pyro?

I hope whatever it is it isn’t a one night thing for NYE. I also hope it isn’t something that gets put behind a paywall.

Epcot Forever wasn't a threat. It was a promise.

I always left Epcot with a sense of hope and unity of the World after watching illuminations. Thats exactly what an Epcot nighttime spectacular should convey. Never got that feeling with Harmonious. I hope they don’t miss that target with Luminous.

I'm cringing because Disney has yet to give us a show that conveys this message as good as IllumiNations did.

As nice as that would be, I almost hope a new every night thing like OUAT for MK If it's for NYE, we won't hear any thing till about a week before Christmas......... I wish we had more clues but totally understand if Steve can't share more.
