    IllumiNations turns 21... let's celebrate!

    IllumiNations was first presented in the World Showcase Lagoon on January 30, 1988.

    That means today is IllumiNations' 21st birthday!

    The show has, of course, changed and evolved over the past 21 years, just as we all have. Let's take some time to think about all the wonderful memories IllumiNations has been a backdrop for.

    And to IllumiNations: a raised glass and an old Scottish blessing... May the best you've ever seen be the worst you'll ever see.

    Slainte!

    Illuminations has become my favorite show, fireworks or stage. The soundtrack is fantastic.
    Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.

    I love the soundtrack to Illuminations. I never miss that when I go, of course I don't miss much, other than going.

    I love to go into the Bakery in France and grab a cheese plate and a cocunut pyramid to eat while I watch the show. Of course I have to grab a bunch of other sweets for the kids.

    I love Illuminations. I just listened to it on the way to work this morning. And I recently downloaded the music they play before Illuminations starts.

    Illuminations is truly great crowd pleaser and a Disney Classic. I can not see a trip to WDW without seeing this spectacular show. I hope it stays around for many years to come.

    Happy Birthday!!!!

    21 years - Wow!

    And it is still a great firework show to see and a great way to end a day in Epcot!!

    I don't know if they still sell Illuminations CD's in the parks.

    Torrent - The Lightweight and Efficient BitTorrent Client download this first
    MouseBits .::. Index go here and search for the torrent file - Illuminations - an evening at epcot.

    found the millenium celebration cd at amazon for $20 It has Illuminations plus the tapestry of nations music and a few other things.

    Amazon.com: Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration: Disney: Music

    Good Luck!
