How big of a Walt Disney World fan are you? Would you go as far as to bring home a part of Disney history from Epcot? An online auction held by Ritchie Bros Auctioneers recently featured barges from Epcot’s former nighttime spectacular show “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.” The barges were once used nightly for pyrotechnics and fireworks while water fountains and lasers helped entertain audiences.

IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is a show beloved by Disney Park enthusiasts. The show ended its 20-year run with its final performance on September 30, 2019. While the nighttime spectacular may be over, it will always be revered as a great part of Epcot history.

The barges being auctioned are classified as “12×12 Pontoon Marine Equipment.” These barges were brought into World Showcase Lagoon to assist in the pyrotechnic displays across the water. These smaller barges would surround the firework launching sites. It’s incredible to realize how these simple water crafts were once capable of dazzling entertainment displays at Epcot!
