IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is an award-winning night time
show performed nightly at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort
near Orlando, Florida. The show utilizes fireworks, pyrotechnics,
laser lights, fountains, and fire to create a visual production on
the park's World Showcase Lagoon. It premiered on October 1, 1999
as IllumiNations 2000: Reflections of Earth as part of the Walt
Disney World Millennium Celebration; it was so successful that
after the celebration ended the 2000 was dropped from the name and
the show was continued. The show is currently sponsored by Siemens
and has received several awards throughout the years including the
2009 and 2012 Best Outdoor Night Production Show by Gold Ticket
Awards. Before the show begins, a 30-minute music loop is played
around the lagoon. The first loop played from the show's premiere
through 2004, while the 2nd one has been running from 2004 to the
present. 1999 - 2004 Music Loop 2004 Present Music Loop The
speakers around the lagoon have been recently upgraded and use a
proprietary audio technology developed by Bose, originally for
military purposes. The speakers can be controlled individually, and
project audio, meaning that, like a video projector, the speaker
only sends audio in one direction, isolating it from other audio
from surrounding speakers. Audio from the speakers travels well,
without losing much volume, and the sound waves do not reflect as
much as standard speakers. Walt Disney Creative Entertainment uses
this to enhance the pre-show experience, making the music begin in
a few small areas and eventually build to cover the entire
promenade. Each country uses the same base loop track mentioned
above, with accents from that country's musical style added in.
Each "speaker" is actually a cluster of several of these high-tech
speakers, each controlled as a separate track. Disney has also
applied this technology in their parades, isolating the different
musical tracks played in the different park sec
