    Best place to watch Illuminations?

    Hi Melanie, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question!

    The great thing about IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is the fact that there really are no bad places to see the show. I’ve seen it from the FastPass+ viewing area, from the patio at the Rose & Crown Dining Room(great meal, amazing view) but my favourite place, however, has got to be around Germany. Because it’s at the “back” of World Showcase, fewer people seem to watch the show from that area, probably because they’d rather be closer to Epcot’s exit when the show ends. 

    I find that the extra bit of walking is worth it, as you can get a spot right along the water, less than 10 minutes before the show starts… and because I’m in close proximity to one of my favourite World Showcase treats: caramel popcorn from Karamell-Küche! The fact that there are fewer people is also great for my family because my little guy can run around a bit and stretch his legs while he’s waiting for the show to start. I highly recommend watching the show from there during your next visit to Epcot. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
