Theme park attractions come and go all the time, and even though we’d like all our favorite rides and shows to stick around forever, the sad fact is that we have to say goodbye to at least a few every year.

Though we already said goodbye to several Epcot attractions, including character meet and greets, Club Cool, and the Fountain of Nations, there are even more closures happening over the next few weeks at Walt Disney World, with many of these happening at the end of this month! 

1. IllumiNations

Location: Epcot

Status: Closing permanently September 30th 

Though we're excited for the future of Epcot., September 30th will be a bittersweet day as the iconic IllumiNations nighttime spectacular will officially close on this date after a two decade run at this park. Directly after the end of this show, the brand new limited time Epcot Forever will debut on October 1st, 2019

2. The Muppets Present…Great Moments in American History

Location: Magic Kingdom

Status: Closing permanently September 30th 

The Muppets Present...Great Moments in History has been a fixture of Liberty Square since it debuted back in 2016, and has been a fan favorite for guests, who line up every day across from the Hall of Presidents at the Heritage House building to see these beloved characters act out some of the most iconic moments in American history. However, it looks like guests only have until the end of the month to see this fun show, as Disney's official times guide does not list performances beyond September 30. Sadly, this show is not expected to return. 

3. Super Shindig Dance Party

Location: Disney's Hollywood Studios

Status: Closing permanently September 30th 

The Super Shindig Dance Party, which has been a part of the Incredibles Celebration event at Disney's Hollywood Studios and allowed guests to learn new dances, play great games, and have the chance to meet popular Incredibles characters like Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone, will also be coming to a close on September 30th.
