    Re: Illuminations closing!!

    I saw this reported about two weeks ago on another sight. I need to back track and find out which blog it was.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    And this is not where I saw it from first but this was from
    Clubthemeparks.com

    A Note From Gary:
    NEWS!!IllumiNations Reflections of Earth is closing for good August 30.


    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is a fireworks show, performed nightly at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. It premiered on October 1, 1999 as IllumiNations 2000: Reflections of Earth as part of the Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration; it was so successful that after the celebration ended the 2000 was dropped from the name and the show was continued. It was previously presented by General Electric, and now Siemens, at a cost of approximately US$17,000 per show. The Show Will Be Closed on August 30, 2009 and will replaced by DisneySea Symphony (Formerly from Tokyo DisneySea from 2001-2004) Which Shows on September 30, 2009.

    NO WAY!

    If this were true, then we'd be seeing it EVERYWHERE! Especially on the big and trustworthy sites like allears and mouseplanet.

    I don't the evidence of this, that's why I posted it on the rumors section. I just wanted to make everyone aware of what may be going down.

    Sadly, I wouldnt be surprised if this was the case cause it's been around for sometime now. I think I remember Lou mentioning this as a possibility a while back...sad if it's true

    Re: Illuminations closing!!

    Just great! Aside from the fireworks at the Castle this is the one show that we were going to be able to see during our next trip. It's also the only one we haven't seen yet and we were really looking forward to seeing it.

    I haven't seen this posted on Deb's site or here. Hopefully, it is a rumor. If not, then I'm glad I got it all on video in the past.

    Re: Illuminations closing!!

    Illuminations is still all over September in the official calendar...if they were actually changing it that soon, it would have never been in the calendar in the first place.

    Then again, LWTL closed rather abruptly.

    Didn't the globe just get a high-tech upgrade recently too?

    Angry Re: Illuminations closing!!

    I hope that this is just a rumour. Illuminations is my favorite night time spectacular at WDW, and I would hate to see it go.
    I visit a number of other WDW related sites and haven't seen any info regarding this.
    Thanks for the heads up Ahyab!
