Epcot Forever and New Epcot Experience Debut Today
Not only is it October 1st but it is also a HUGE day for Epcot! Not only did the park open on this day in 1982 but in celebration, Epcot is launching a new fireworks display along with an exhibition showing all of the exciting changes to come in the theme park’s future.
Let’s take a quick look at both!
Walt Disney Imagineering presents the Epcot Experience
This brand new exhibition- OPEN TODAY-in the Odyssey Events Pavilion provides the first in-depth look at the historic transformation that will be underway at Epcot over the next few years! The Epcot Experience blends cutting-edge technology and fun interactive moments to create an environment that showcases all the things you love about the park!
Highlights include a 360-degree, floor to ceiling screen showing a 12-minute film focusing on the new experiences coming to the park. In addition, there is a three dimension model in the center of the room using projection-mapping to highlight the changes coming to different areas of the park.
Guests will also love the new dimensional photo locations perfect for those social media snaps. One makes even makes it look like you’re standing on the top of the Spaceship Earth geosphere.
You’ll also find historical artefacts on display, attractions posters through the years and so much more!
But wait … there’s more! If you followed along with our live broadcast last night you’ll know that we said goodbye to ‘IllumiNations” which closed after 20 years of dazzling guests. But disney has a new show that is sure to wow- tonight marks the debut of “Epcot Forever.” This new show is a scintillating collection of soaring fireworks, lasers, and colorful glowing kites that dance through the sky above the water.
The story of Epcot is set to a grand orchestral soundtrack, with noted conductor and composer Don Harper producing new arrangements of classic Epcot tunes threaded throughout the show. It features stirring renditions of music from the park’s history that are sure to stoke some fond memories, such as “One Little Spark” and the theme from the “Tapestry of Nations” parade.
Get a first look at this awesome new fireworks show at Disney Parks Blog tonight at 8:50 p.m. EDT. “Epcot Forever” is set to perform into 2020, leading to the park’s next nighttime spectacular, “HarmonioUS.”
