"Good evening, and welcome. We've gathered here tonight, around the fire, as people of all lands have gathered for thousands and thousands of years before us, to share the light and to share a story an amazing story, as old as time itself but still being written. And though we each of us have our own individual stories to tell a true adventure emerges when we bring them all together as one.
I hope you enjoy our story tonight -- Reflections of Earth."

Disney's Millennium Celebration debuted the evening show at Epcot called IllumiNations 2000:  Reflections of Earth. It was so popular, that it's been extended indefinitely.
