‘IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth’ at Epcot is ending next year!

September 17, 2018

 

After nearly 20 years of delighting Epcot® Guests with the emotional story of humanity told through music, fireworks, light torches and more, “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” will be ending in the second half of next year. The Disney Parks Live Entertainment team is already busy creating new thrills to debut immediately following the conclusion of “IllumiNations,” continuing the tradition of nightly entertainment on the World Showcase Lagoon.

 

“IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,” which is currently planned to run to the end of summer 2019, has entertained millions of guests gathered around World Showcase Lagoon sharing the light and a story since it debuted in October 1999 as part of the Walt Disney World® Millennium Celebration. During the coming year, Disney will be celebrating this classic show, so you still have plenty of time to experience it again and again, as excitement builds for what’s next.

 

We know that Disney has got big plans for their multi-year transformation of Epcot, with new experiences that will “Wow!” your while keeping true to the original vision of the park. And the all-new nighttime fireworks spectacular coming to Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon will be part of the park’s exciting evolution.

 

The new show will join several previously announced experiences coming to Epcot, including the highly-anticipated “Guardians of the Galaxy” roller coaster attraction, a “Ratatouille”-inspired attraction in World Showcase, a new table-service restaurant adjacent to Mission: SPACE, and much more!

Opening Dates for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

May 23, 2018

Opening Dates for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

 

Exciting news for Disney and Star Wars fans!  While Disney is still hard at work creating their largest single-themed land expansions ever, there is big news to share about the opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in summer 2019 at Disneyland® Resort and in late fall 2019 at Walt Disney World® Resort, when you will land in the middle of the action as you live your own Star Wars stories.

To book your Disney Vacation and experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for yourself, call 855-434-9397 or start planning online!

In the meantime, take a look at this incredible sneak peek at these new immersive lands!

In addition, we have some additional exciting news about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Walt Disney Imagineering Story Editor, Margaret Kerrison, shared that the name of the village is called Black Spire Outpost. She also shared some of the history behind the name and how this village is closely associated with the geological formations that surround it.

The largest settlement on the planet Batuu, Black Spire Outpost is an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space. Off the beaten path, this outpost has become a haven for the galaxy’s most colorful — and notorious — characters. Widely known for the petrified remains of its once towering ancient trees, the spires now stand guard across the river valleys and plains and have long captured the imagination of travelers to this planet. To the first settlers, these petrified spires became more than just landmarks; they became the heart of the outpost itself.

Sailings to Bermuda, Bahamas and Canada from New York Disney Cruise 2019
The Disney Magic returns to New York in September for a selection of departures to a diverse collection of destinations, including luxurious Bermuda, sun-kissed Bahamas and historic New Brunswick, Canada.

Three special five-night cruises feature two days in Bermuda, allowing extra time for Guests to indulge in the inimitable island nation’s famous pink-sand beaches, world-class shopping, abundant water activities and distinctive blend of British and Caribbean culture.

During two seven-night sailings from New York to the Bahamas, cruisers are treated to a double-dose of pixie dust. A stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, is paired with a day at Port Canaveral, Florida, where every Guest receives a one-day Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket and round-trip transportation to the theme parks in nearby Orlando.

A single five-night cruise to Canada transports Guests from New York to charming Saint John, New Brunswick with a stop in Bar Harbor, Maine.

Baja and Mexican Riviera Voyages from California
In September, the Disney Wonder sets sail for a limited engagement in San Diego, where guests embark on adventures to Baja and the Mexican Riviera. Baja itineraries highlight the region’s famous beaches and exciting water activities with calls on Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico. Two exclusive seven-night Mexican Riviera sailings feature the snorkeling and scuba diving hot spots Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán and Cabo San Lucas.

Disney Cruise Line Guests can enrich their experience by combining select San Diego-based cruises with a pre-cruise package from Adventures by Disney. During this three-night itinerary, guests embark on a rare behind-the-magic visit to The Walt Disney Studios and Disney Archives, a private tour of Walt Disney Imagineering and a visit to the place where it all began—the Disneyland Resort.

Vacations to Bahamas and Caribbean from Texas
Beginning late November, the Disney Wonder will make Galveston its home port for a special series of sailings to the Caribbean and Bahamas, with options of four, six and seven night voyages.

Tropical Escapes from Florida Disney Cruise 2019
In fall 2019, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy continue sailing guest-favorite itineraries to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Port Canaveral, while the Disney Magic returns to Miami in November with a variety of cruise lengths and itineraries.

The Disney Dream sails three- and four-night cruises to Nassau and Disney Castaway Cay. These itineraries make for the perfect family getaway, combining the magic of Disney with the ease and enjoyment of a tropical cruise vacation.

The Disney Fantasy sails seven-night Caribbean voyages, and every cruise includes a stop at Disney Castaway Cay. Eastern Caribbean itineraries visit the Virgin Islands of Tortola and St. Thomas, and Western Caribbean cruises call on Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Falmouth.

The Disney Fantasy will also sail a selection of special itineraries. In October, an eight-night voyage transports Guests south to St. Kitts, Antigua and San Juan, Puerto Rico, while a six-night Western Caribbean itinerary includes calls on Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico. Both itineraries are capped off with a day at Disney Castaway Cay. In December, two unique seven-night itineraries include one cruise to San Juan, Tortola and Disney Castaway Cay, and another voyage featuring two days on Disney’s private island after visits to Cozumel and Grand Cayman.
