Epcot Forever is less than a week from debuting at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort. When it does debut, it will be a love letter to Epcot of the past, the present, and the magical new things that will be arriving there in the future. Epcot Forever will begin performances in the World Showcase Lagoon on October 1, 2019. It will have one little spark of imagination bring it to life. It will grow to an epic performance with fireworks, lights, lasers, special effects kites, and spectacular musical accompaniment.
Disney Parks Live Entertainment show director Alan Bruun shared about Epcot Forever and the role of music in it, “Music is the soul of the show, because music has been the soul of Epcot ever since it began.”
There are a lot of classic Epcot musical themes utilized in Epcot Forever. This includes the music of Horizons, Journey into Imagination, Listen to the Land, and more! Epcot Forever takes these classic tunes and reorchestrates them in new magical ways. The music was recorded at Abby Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra along with voices from a choir comprised of singers from across central Florida.
Disney shared a video that showcases the music of Epcot Forever and also gives some of the details behind it. Check it out here:
