Tuesday Night Networking Finale At EPCOT:
SPECIAL EVENT

IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth

This is a most incredible grand finale; one that encompasses the entire World Showcase and the skies above. As the fiery glow of torches and sky-piercing lasers reflect on the lagoon, the boom of thunderous fireworks echoes atop an original music score. It is a thrilling visual and aural extravaganza as the skies above the lagoon are transformed into a kaleidoscope of color from thundering pyrotechnic bursts. On the lagoon, images displayed across the Earth Globe tell the incredible tale of our planet before the sphere opens to signal the IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth emotional finale.
