If you have ever been to Epcot at Disney World, there is a good chance that you have seen Illuminations. Illuminations is a night time fireworks and light show that is set in the middle of the World Showcase.
Illuminations was originally created as a celebration of moving into the new millennium. It was scheduled to run for fourteen months, but is approaching fifteen years.
When the lights go down to begin the show, 19 torches are lit to symbolize the 1900’s. Count them the next time you walk around the World Showcase.
During the show, most of the countries around the lagoon light up their respective buildings as a part of the celebration. Two of the countries choose to remain dark instead. Norway chooses not to put lights on it’s Stave Church and Morocco chooses to remain dark citing religious preferences.
Next time you’re watching Illuminations, check it out and see if you notice these things and let me know what you see.
