IllumiNations Reflections of Earth from Norway - September 2019

Epoct's IllumiNations Reflections of Earth had its final performance last night - 20 years since its debut in 1999. 

Previously called "IllumiNations 2000: Reflections of Earth," the name changed to "IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth," on January 1, 2001 following the close of the Walt Disney World 15-month Millennium Celebration.

The unofficial opening for "IllumiNations 2000: Reflections of Earth" took place on September 22, 1999. 

IllumiNations 2000: Reflections of Earth was introduced at Epcot for the Walt Disney World 15-month Millennium Celebration as an all new show.

More than a simple update, the show was created from "scratch," with more than 30 percent more fireworks than any prior show at Epcot. 

Epcot's firework legacy will continue with the debut of 'Epcot Forever' on October 1, followed by an all new show in 2020 - HarmonioUS.

This video is of the final show, shot from World Showcase Plaza, and includes a look at the Earth barge leaving the lagoon for the final time.
