Last fall, the Disney Parks Blog shared some exciting updates on the multi-year transformation of Epcot – including the news that “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” will end its run later this summer and that a new limited-time experience called “Epcot Forever” will debut in fall 2019.
At the time they shared this news, they promised that we’d celebrate “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” with all of us in a very special way.
Today it was announced that they will stream “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” live from Epcot on Thursday, March 28 at 8:55 p.m. ET.
To watch the stream, simply visit the Disney Parks Blog on March 28! The Disney Parks Blog will also have an exciting “look ahead” at the fun in store for Walt Disney World Resort guests in 2019.
Continuing their celebration of summer fun, the Disney Parks Blog will host a special #DisneyParksLIVE stream of “Rivers of Light” on Tuesday, August 22.
In case you haven’t seen this amazing nighttime show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, “Rivers of Light” celebrates animals and nature by combining floating set pieces, lanterns, a soaring musical score, fountains and more. The show’s storytellers “narrate” this emotionally moving show through a combination of dance, music, song and shadow puppetry.
The live stream of “Rivers of Light” will begin Tuesday, August 22 at 8:40 p.m. EDT. A fresh blog post with the live video will appear at the top of the Disney Parks Blog Tuesday night right before the show.
And as always, to follow along on Twitter, use the hashtags #DisneyParksLIVE.
The next #DisneyParksLIVE stream will take place July 18 from Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where guests are loving the new “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular” fireworks show.
The spectacular is the next generation of Star Wars-themed fireworks shows for the park. “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular,” dazzles with new themed fireworks, lasers, special effects and video projections of iconic characters and scenes from the complete saga, all set to the unforgettable score of the film series.
The live stream of this new show will begin at 9:20 p.m. ET. Visit the Disney Parks Blog website minutes before the fireworks start to learn more about how the show was designed from the creators themselves! (A fresh blog post containing the live stream feed will be ready and waiting at the top of the blog on July 18).
Continuing their 2015 tradition of live streaming park events, this New Year’s Eve, Magic Kingdom Park will welcome in the year 2016 with a special presentation of “Fantasy in the Sky” fireworks at 11:50 p.m. EST. The Disney Parks Blog team will celebrate by bringing this amazing show to you live, with a link right on the blog.
To view the live stream, simply visit the Disney Parks Blog main page on Thursday night around 11:45 p.m. EST. The live stream will appear in a fresh blog post at the top of the site.

As they did last year, the team at Disney’s Yellow Shoes Department, Matt Stewart and Paul Chase, shared incredible series of images created using just light pens and a camera. This year, the guys are back with more Fourth of July fun – this time taking their skills to the next level by creating this light-painting video that stars Mickey Mouse.
A lot of amazing work went into creating this – including Matt freehanding designs like the flag and fireworks in mid-air, and Paul snapping more than 200 photos.
