    I would not miss Illuminations either music is great but the show is more smoke than anything i think.

    Nooo!!

    Illuminations CANNOT close!!! It can't!!! That's the best nighttime show at WDW! All of my best WDW memories seem to have happened during Illuminations. Get rid of Wishes, Fantasmic, Spectro.... but not Illuminations!

    It would be a press conference event by Disney. There's no way it's true.

    Well, it better not be true! I highly doubt WDW would get rid of Illuminations with zero warning.

    I have been to disney world 3 times, and have never watched illuminations. But I do have to say that disney sea symphony looks pretty awesome!
    When hinges creak, in doorless chambers. And strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker, where the air is deathly still, that is the time when ghosts are present. Practicing their terror, with ghoulish delight!

    Welcome! Foolish Mortals, to the Haunted Mansion, I am your host, your ghost host.

    As far as I know, this rumor was dead shortly after it started. No announcement has been made and September is a week away. Illuminations is all over the schedule through November as normal.

    I think what sparked this rumor is that the ever-accurate official WDW event calendars (har har har) didn't list Illuminations in September when it first came out, but it was corrected the next day.

    That's a relief! I'll be down there in less than a month and my trip would have felt incomplete without Illuminations! :-)

    I'm glad this didn't happen. I think this is such an original Fireworks display. Love the music. I'd really like to find out how to get more music like it. I miss the parade from 2000 though that has music on the same CD.

    Re: Illuminations closing!!

    I went back and listened to some of the earlier incarnations of the show, and musically they don't hold a candle to Reflections of Earth.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.
