EPCOT Forever Lights Up the Night Sky For First Time In a Year
The rain couldn’t stop EPCOT Forever form making its glistening debut over World Showcase Lagoon!
This popular nighttime spectacular has been dark for over a year but is back each evening at EPCOT as of tonight.
EPCOT Forever will run until Disney debuts a new show called Harmonious which is slated to open on October 1st to coincide with Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration.
We forgot how absolutely beautiful this nighttime extravaganza was.
Though you don’t get the castle projections of Happily Ever After seeing the countries of the World Showcase as well as Spaceship Earth makes a breathtaking backdrop.
Elyssa managed to capture some of the incredible pyrotechnics you’ll can see during your EPCOT visit.
The evening includes bright beaming lasers and a killer soundtrack!
In the shot above, you can see Spaceship Earth glistening in beautiful purple hues.
Here’s a closer look at Spaceship Earth as we made our way around the World Showcase Lagoon.
There were a ton of golden fireworks that looked stunning in the slightly cloudy night sky.
The display started at 9pm.
Like yesterday’s Happily Ever After fireworks at the Magic Kingdom, Disney made the decision to continue with the fireworks even with the bad weather.
This is often the case though if lightening is spotted in the area, Disney will make the decision to cancel the fireworks completely.
During the busy hurricane season, it’s always good to keep an eye on the weather even while you’re at the parks as it can change quickly.
Here’s a look at pyrotechnics in an array of beautiful hues.
In and amongst the fireworks you can see the big barges that have already been brought into the lagoon for Harmonious.
That show will offer water pageantry and during the day, will transform the lagoon into a giant fountain. It promises to be simply stunning.
In the image below, you can see the fountains being tested with there cascading water.
We love the way the firework below was lit up purple from the lasers below!
Here are a few more fireworks shots in stunning champagne colors!
In case you missed it MickeyBlog was lucky enough to attend a dessert party for EPCOT Forever.
It was originally supposed to be held on the shores of the Italy Pavilion .
However, it was moved to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion due to the bad weather.
Disney has not said as of yet whether they plan to bring back the dessert parties as special ticketed events.
This is a story that we’ll continue to follow closely.
The debut of EPCOT Forever means that fireworks are back in two of the four Disney World theme parks.
There’s no word yet whether fireworks will return at Hollywood Studios who had a beloved Star Wars themed evening show as well as Fantasmic!
Animal Kingdom did have an evening water show called Rivers of Light and we’ve not heard anything about that show either.
We do know that in celebration of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Animal Kingdom will offer a daytime kite show in the location where Rivers of Light used to take place.
What an exciting time to be at Disney with new attractions and eateries on the way, 50th Anniversary Celebrations kicking off in just a few months and the return of beloved nighttime shows. We are sure that there’s more excitement to come.
