by , Senior Communications Manager, Disney Parks Live Entertainment

Making its debut in just two weeks, “Epcot Forever” will be an all-new, limited-time spectacle of fireworks, music, lighting, lasers and choreographed special effects kites. The show takes us on a journey through the past, present and future of Epcot, featuring a stirring collection of songs that paint a colorful picture of the park, with a look towards the future and all the magical possibilities still to come.

Disney Parks Live Entertainment is busy getting “Epcot Forever” ready for opening day. At the D23 Expo last month, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek shared a special sneak peek at some of the work taking place behind the scenes. Take a look (and listen)!

Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog in the coming weeks for more on the making of “Epcot Forever,” and make plans to join us when the show debuts October 1, 2019!

  • Vintage EPCOT music will definitely make me so happy, and will go far in easing the loss of IllumiNations.

    Can’t wait to see and hear the entire new show. It’s time to add a new CD to my collection, so I hope a new park CD will be available soon and will definitely include this music.

  • Looks great but how long is it running? I read something about this having a short run.

  • Looking forward to classic EPCOT Center songs

  • Love the music from the “old” Epcot, this is what I remember the most. So happy to hear it again, especially “tomorrow’s child”.

  • Fabulous! I can’t wait to see the show in late October – I’m guessing that it’ll be my favorite nighttime show ever, so I’m happy I’ll get there a couple times in the next 9 months . . .
