The latest night-time extravaganza from Disney Live Entertainment, titled Luminous The Symphony of Us is set to make its grand debut at EPCOT on December 5. This new show promises to captivate audiences with a stunning display of fireworks, fountains, lights, and music, celebrating the shared experiences that connect us all.

Luminous The Symphony of Us is structured like a musical masterpiece, composed of various movements that represent universal life experiences. It underscores the idea that despite our differences, we share more similarities. The show features two original songs crafted exclusively for the performance, along with new renditions of beloved Disney classics.

The show begins with an immersive experience as voices from the World Showcase pavilions invite the audience to join in the celebration. The first movement, initiated with the original song Heartbeat Symphony sets the stage for a journey through the shared experiences of life.

The narrative of "Luminous The Symphony of Us" explores various themes, starting with the tender love inherent in parenthood. It includes a moving, multilingual version of You’ll Be in My Heart symbolizing the start of life's journey. The show then segues into Proud Corazón celebrating family ties, followed by a tribute to friendship with songs like You’ve Got a Friend in Me and Friend Like Me.

A romantic chapter unfolds with a beautiful rendition of So Close from Disney’s Enchanted highlighting the magic of love. The show also touches on the poignant theme of loss, with songs like When She Loved Me and Remember Me before moving into the uplifting Into the Unknown The finale emerges with I See the Light from Tangled leading to the second original song, Beating of our Hearts where the collective experience culminates in a harmonious celebration of life.

Initially, "Luminous" will light up the night sky at EPCOT at 9:30 PM daily. However, during the much-loved EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, the park will extend its hours beyond the usual 9 PM closing time. Consequently, guests might see a slight adjustment in showtimes, potentially to an earlier slot of 9 PM, following the conclusion of the Festival on December 30th.
Disney first teased fans with a glimpse of what "Luminous" holds during a media event in March 2023, where they unveiled some captivating concept art. The show, as announced, is an embodiment of unity and shared experiences, aligning perfectly with the spirit of Disney's centennial celebrations.

As Disney's 100th Anniversary celebration continues, "Luminous" is poised to be a beacon of joy and unity at EPCOT. This new night-time show is not just a display of lights and sounds but a reflection of Disney’s enduring commitment to bringing people together through magical experiences.
