Illuminations Holiday Finale
During the holiday season, after the regular finale there is a special Holiday finale tag originally from Holiday IllumiNations following the regular production. Immediately after the regular finale a female announcer announces; “And now, at this special time, as we embrace a promise of a new year, we would like to offer one final message.” The song “Let There Be Peace On Earth” is played as the Earth Barge closes. Afterward, there were messages of “Peace on Earth, good will to men” in several languages. When a language is spoken, the pavilion lights up. When the American pavilion lights up, Walter Cronkite then says, “During this glorious time of year there is one message that rings out around the world in every language. Peace on earth. Good will to men is a wish to hold in our hearts throughout each passing year. A gift of immeasurable value. A treasure being handed down with care, from generation to generation. And so our holiday wish is that everyone, everywhere share in the spirit of the season. Peace on earth, good will to men.” The song continues with an uninterrupted firework display, ending with a loud explosion of fireworks. This tag launches just as many pyrotechnic devices as IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth does.
