I’m happy to share that the next in our series of #DisneyParksLIVE events – a live stream of “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” – will take place Monday, March 21.

Our live stream will start right here on the Disney Parks Blog at 8:50 p.m. EDT. While “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” starts at 9 p.m. EST, you can join us beforehand for a behind-the-scenes look at the operation of this nighttime favorite. (A fresh blog post containing the live stream feed will be ready and waiting at the top of the blog on March 21).

In case you aren’t familiar, “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” is Epcot’s nighttime spectacular that celebrates the spirit of humanity through fireworks, lighting effects, moving music and more. The centerpiece of the show is a 350,000-lb “Earth Globe” that serves as a spherical video display system, around which, all of the action takes place.


  • Unbelievable, even streaming over the web. Still gets to you. Thank you so much for setting this up!!! Can’t wait for our daughter’s first trip in a few months!!!

  • Don’t be silly YOU HAVE TO STAY UP. I know it is getting late here in the UK but “gosh” I would not miss this for the world. I shall be waking my 11 & 9 year old daughters up too 5 mins before the start, if I didn’t my life would not be worth living in the morning. Well done Disney “YOU” never let us down, we love the live streams it make us feel like we are there with you all. ONE BIG THANK YOU FROM WALES.

  • Hi all I’m watching from Oss the Netherlands….. And watching it together with my best friens who lives in Florida USA… and tweeting back and forth…….(both with a Duffy bear to keep us compagny)

  • I’m so excited!

  • So excited to watch IllumiNations tonight. Haven’t seen it since I was on my DCP back in 2012.

  • I am online to watch the live stream, quite an interesting experience, it is much better & convenient; thanks for heads up ?

  • What is the actual link that the live stream will be on?

  • So upset! I haven’t missed any live streams before, & I’ve been waiting for this particular event to happen, & I can’t see it!!! 🙁 I wish there was more of an advanced notice for these events, like a couple weeks at least, so people could book off the night to be able to enjoy it, not by just a few days. 🙁 Or, at least give an option to re-watch the event at another time.

  • Is this on for tonight, Mon. 3/21 at 8:50 or was it on last night Sun. 3/20 at 8:50? I received an email from Disney Destinations that said the date was Sun. 3/20 at 8:50. I hope I haven’t missed it!

  • Our family looks forward to these events so much! We mark the on the calendar and make them an event at home. Thanks so much and keep them coming!

  • Fantastic, thanks so much for sharing these live streams.

  • Thank you very much for streaming this. I will be sure to watch! Illuminations has always been my favorite. Disney and the magic they produce always strikes the most emotional chord with me and Illuminations for some reason is the culmination of all that. I’ve been to WDW over 50 times but this year is the first time for my children (7, 5 and 3) and also for my wife. I can’t wait to see it all through their eyes and, especially illuminations, and share with them what WDW means to me! Thank you again for streaming Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. 🙂

    • We can’t wait to bring it to you!

  • Live stream is the BEST thing that Disney offers us megafans so we can feel like we are in the middle of the MAGIC!! Thanks for bringing this to us and I will be tuning in!

    • That’s great to hear, Patricia!

  • any way to broadcast the last showing of Dream Along with Mickey?

  • I also vote for a way to re-watch the live streams!

  • Love the live events from the parks!

    • Thank you! We’re happy to bring them to you.

  • I wish you could re-watch the live streams…

  • It’s a shame I may have to miss this one. I don’t think I would be able to stay up until 2am in the morning here in the U.K. I will try though!
