While my review of EPCOT itself was average, the spectacle of Illuminations will still cause you to stare at the sky like a kid. It doesn't matter what age you are, Illuminations has something for everyone. The fireworks are bright, loud and fun. The floating globe and music tells a story as you go through the performance. It seems like... More

Myself, wife & two teenage sons spent the afternoon here in Epcot. We visited most of the countries, had our dinner in China then later settled in the Rose & Crown pub in England for supper. Here we sat in their outdoor seating area where we had an amazing view of the firework display. Which was excellant! We all enjoyed... More

OK so this may be an old show but it never and I mean never seems old and watching it from different locations seems to add new dimensions. We last watched it from the main dinning room of the Spice Road in Morocco

Truly stunning. The music is emotional and it genuinely brings the world together. Our planet in general would benefit from the 'all together' messages and theme of this show. The fireworks themselves are amazing. We usually watch from the garden of the Rose and Crown in the UK which gives a great view, and you can sit down as well!

Amazing, fireworks blasting from a earth shaped ball of fire. You an see it anywhere around the entire circle of counties but the best spot in 1/2 way around the circle of countries. There is a bridge between the UK and France that is awesome and if you happen to KNOW anyone at the Disney customer service lines - there... More

The show is nice and totally worth see it if you're at Epcot, but I actually expected more. It is definitely not worth it to take a trip to Epcot at night just for it.

A large fireworks display situated all around the lake at the world showcase section in EPCOT, don't have to book or pay tickets its included in admission. I found the best spot to view was on the main bridge as you leave UK to the left and enter France on the right. You can see all of the lake and... More

You definitely want to be somewhere on the lake & fence between Canada (after the Friendship boat launch) and America for best viewing of Illuminations. I say this because if you have any obstructions you do not see the illuminated globe that shows the "reflections of Earth" story very well. There were fewer fireworks at this show than shows I've...
