June 9, 1984 – The Laserphonic Fantasy Show Debuts at Epcot
On June 9, the Laserphonic Fantasy light show debuted in Epcot. The show was a precursor to Illuminations, which opened in 1988. Laserphonic Fantasy was an elaborate laser and effects show, featuring the music of composer Don Dorsey, performed in full orchestral. The show took many cues from its predecessor, A New World Fantasy, and was one of the first shows to use lasers on a water-droplet screen. The show did not feature spotlights on specific countries; this addition was made for Illuminations.
