There are A LOT of changes coming to Epcot in the next couple of years, with a park wide transformation planned that will see a new 'Guardian's of the Galaxy' rollercoaster in the main part of the park, a 'Ratatouille” attraction across in the World Showcase and an exciting new Table Service restaurant planned opposite Mission: SPACE, which we will be making sure to eat at AFTER braving the Orange Mission! (If you know, you know!).  These are among many proposed plans that is set to wow guests, while making sure to keep true to the park's original vision.

The latest change that has just been announced is quite a surprise, although after 20 years it really shouldn't be!

Disney have just announced that they will be replacing the popular night-time visual show IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth with an all new Firework spectacular at the end of Summer 2019.


While this is a shame, as it always is when a nostalgic show or experience is replaced, here at Ticket Rangers we are quite excited to see what is next. We enjoy Epcot and the evening fireworks, but we are one of the (probably) few that think it is a welcome change.

With the kids the age that they are at the minute, we often find that Epcot is the least 'immersive' park for us as a family, and it is rare that we would still be there come firework time.


Although this wasn't always the case... before the mini Ticket Rangers came along you could often find us stumbling around the World Showcase and eating ourselves into a food coma!

But as life has changed, so have our priorites in a park, and hopefully with the new additions, this park will once again become one of our favourites.
We just KNOW it will be one of Niall's, as the mere mention of Baby Groot has him up dancing!

We do hope to see IllumiNations again before it ends, but we are very excited to see what's next too, we have to say.

So cheers for the last 20 year IllumiNations, we will raise a glass to you, no doubts about it!
