Daytime aerobatics, fast watercraft, colored smoke, and fireworks were the cornerstones of great daytime performances in EPCOT Center. Shows like Surprise in the Skies were crucial to drawing children into World Showcase, children who otherwise didn’t have a desire to be anywhere near the mile long promenade.
Wouldn’t it be great to see the skies over Epcot filled with fireworks and flying crafts again?
FANTASTIC FINALE – Daytime fireworks, paraplanes, hang gliders, kites and giant balloons combine for “Surprise in the Skies”, the new daytime show at Walt Disney World Epcot Center. Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters pilot paraplanes over World Showcase Lagoon, while speed boats pull red-white-and-blue kites into the sky and 45-foot tall cold air balloons highlight each of the pavilions.
