IllumiNations

IllumiNations was a series of nightly fireworks shows at Epcot before was created in 1999 for the Millennium Celebration. Little is known about Carnival de Lumiere.

Carnival de Lumiere

The first evening presentation, Carnival de Lumiere, premiered on October 23, 1982. It celebrated world festivals with fountains, film, music, and other effects. The show used rear projection screens on barges floating on the World Showcase Lagoon. Between the projection barges were fountain/fireworks barges controlled by Apple computers. The show could be viewed only from points between the Mexican and Canadian pavilions.
