Rumors have been circulating for some time now about changes coming to Epcot’s popular nighttime show, Illuminations. When it was announced that Siemens would be removing their sponsorship from Disney Parks, rumors started to circulate that show might be gone for good.
Today, WDWThemeParks.com is reporting that Illuminations will be getting some changes with the possibility of completely revamped show which would be called, “Illuminations: Windows on the World.” Reports say that drones would have a large presence in an updated show or completely new show. In addition to the drones being a large part of the nighttime show, the drones themselves may be used to operate what Disney calls “Fixels.” Fixels are used used to display large puppets and projection scenes. If you remember, there was a nighttime drone show previously offered at Disney Springs during the 2016 holiday season.
WDWThemeParks.com also says some of this drone technology could be used for a new show on the Seven Seas Lagoon. Hopefully this wouldn’t mean an end to the long-running Electrical Water Pagaent but maybe just an enhancement.
