Epcot future firework show island construction

These latest photos show some extensive work taking place in the World Showcase Lagoon ahead of the new nighttime spectaculars set to debut over the next few years at Epcot.

Pictured above, work on the island near to China is continuing, with construction barges still in place.

Over on the island near to Japan, work is underway on adding a building, along with other additions.

Out in the lagoon itself, a number of new pilings are visible.

Disney's new Illuminations replacement show will debut in 2020.

The unnamed new nighttime spectacular will celebrate how Disney music inspires people around the world, and will feature massive floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics and lasers.

Before that new show begins, there will be a limited-time experience, called "Epcot Forever," which will debut in fall 2019 and will feature classic Epcot tunes. 

"Epcot Forever" will begin with a spark of imagination that swells into an epic spectacle of fireworks, music, lighting, lasers, and special effects kites.
