EPCOT Forever

EPCOT Forever was first presented after the end of the run of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at EPCOT. It was then replaced by Harmonious as part of Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th Anniversary celebration. Originally the show included kites but then after the pandemic it was updated with more fireworks and the kites did not return. This run for EPCOT Forever will be temporary until a new nighttime spectacular at EPCOT replaces it.
