    Merry Christmas to you all! Is there a spot at the Contemporary to view Wishes and the water parade? We are eating at CM at 6:30 and the fireworks are at 8:00. Also, can we see Illuminations anywhere outside the Epcot park? Thanks so much- Jackie

    Hi, Jackie! Merry Christmas to you and yours as well! You can view the Electric Water Pageant from the beach at the Contemporary Resort.  It arrives there about 10:00 P.M. You can also see Wishes Nighttime Spectacular.  It is not the straight-on view that you get from the shores of the Polynesian Resort, which is my favorite, but it is still good. 

     

    There are spots on the Boardwalk where you can see the upper portions of IllumiNations, but so much of it takes place on World Showcase Lagoon that you will want to be inside Epcot to get the full effect.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
