Holiday Entertainment

Behold the past, present and future of Earth at this stunning fireworks show that celebrates the spirit of humanity.

Pyrotechnics fill the night sky as balls of fire shoot into the air

The Story of Earth

Gather around the World Showcase Lagoon to witness the incredible history of our planet.

Part One: The Earth Is Born
Earth’s fiery birth begins with flames and fireworks erupting from the lagoon. Beneath a swarm of heavenly explosions, red and golden lights blaze on the shimmering waters. As the volcanic effects subside, a glowing globe glides peacefully across the waters.

Part Two: The Triumph of Life
Our individual stories culminate in one adventurous tale. The illuminated surface of the globe reveals the history of humanity and the achievements of our time.

Part Three: Hope for the Future
Comets of light race into the sky, before the globe blossoms like a lotus flower, revealing a torch ablaze with our dreams. A chorus of voices rises as the entire lagoon dances with bursts of joyous white light.

Behind the Magic

All kinds of extraordinary technology and talent went into producing this spectacle. While watching the show, you’ll see and hear:

  • The Inferno Barge, a liquid-propane mechanism that launches balls of fire 60 feet into the air
  • The 350,000-pound Earth Globe, the world's first spherical video display system
  • Jim Cummings—the voice of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and other Disney characters—narrating this nighttime spectacular
