Join WDWNT as we celebrate the final IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth and the premiere of Epcot Forever with two dessert parties and a private luncheon and panel presentation with the creators of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, including Don Dorsey, Gavin Greenaway, and Kellie Coffey.
“Reflections of Forever” is a four-day event that will also feature group rides and meals as well as a new interactive team-based game developed especially for this event. The FINAL schedule is below. Please note that due to inclement weather or other circumstances beyond our control, the activities may change at any time. For real-time event updates, follow @WDWNT on Twitter or download the WDWNT App. If using the app, please make sure to navigate to the Settings page and enable Notifications for WDWNT Events.
Whether you purchased the VIP Package, or are just attending one activity during the event, the procedure is the same. Whenever you first join us for an activity, please seek out a WDWNT staff member (with a STAFF name badge). We will scan your ticket (either the Event Registration barcode or the VIP Package barcode) and issue you a name badge and lanyard. For the panel and dessert parties, you will also need a wristband for admittance. For those events, we will scan your ticket (either the individual activity ticket barcode or the VIP Package barcode) and issue you a wristband (and name badge and lanyard if you didn’t already get one). If you are looking for us at an in-park event, look for the red WDWNT flag to locate us! If you cannot find the group, check Twitter or the WDWNT App in case the meet location was moved. If all else fails, tweet @WDWNT or send a DM, or send an email to [email protected]
