On October 1st 1999 Illuminations: Reflections of Earth officially opened after a short period of soft opening (which according to Wikipedia began on September 23rd). I first saw the show on December 31st of that year having only seen one illustration which showed the “open” globe - and it has remained my favourite nighttime show since. Gavin Greenaway’s score is amongst the finest ever for a Disney production.
In Issue 16 of Tales Illuminations: Reflections of Earth will begin a series looking at the evening spectaculars from the Disney parks around the world called Night Magic.
