News IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced in 2019

I apologize if this has already explained but I’ll ask anyway. The description I’ve read is pretty vague on the concept other than more IP. Any chance it will still incorporate the countries like Illuminations did? I mean what the heck it takes place in World Showcase so why would they want to create another generic MK similar nighttime show with characters. I understand updating the infrastructure and introducing new tech but the main concept should be about celebrating cultures around the world. The emotional/ patriotic feeling it had. I’ll highly doubt whatever they come up with will do the same thing. I honestly hope I am wrong. This is just one more thing being taken away from Epcot that made it unique in the first place.
From what's been mentioned throughout this thread we should expect something like Happily Ever After but on water and with characters that tie well enough to the country they're representing.

I may not like that idea but I'm waiting for more details before I say I won't like it.

I think we skipped illuminations in November because my preggo wife felt like crap and didn't want to stay (not that we haven't seen it a bunch of times). Next time we go it'll hopefully be this November so I guess we've seen it for the last time. Ah well, hopefully the replacement is better. Not as sad about this one compared to Wishes.

I'm of a similar mindset. Final judgement will be whenever I finally see the new show. I hope I like it, but the last several years of P&R decisions have made me very jaded and has me thinking that what replaces RoE will be a Chapek Special© (aka. an IP crap fest).

When are they going to put in seating to watch the nighttime show like they did over at DAK???
Yep, and it looks fantastic. Guests love it and use it even during non-show times. Same would be true for the Epcot lagoon if done right.
It’s an abolsute eyesore in the daytime and a pain in the preverbal to sit on at night in the cheap seats.

Thank god they’re not coming to Epcot. Or whatever the park will be called.
