Illuminations: Reflections of Earth is one of my favorite firework shows ever. Views of this show can be seen from any country around World Showcase. I have never been disappointed with this show and have made sure I stick around at least twice each trip to see the show from multiple perspectives. A must do at Epcot. 9 pm showings,... More

My husband and I had fast pass for the fireworks show on our last night. We wandered down there about an hour beforehand to find out where we were supposed to go with fast pass and was surprised at the amount of people sitting on the ground waiting in line to get into the fast pass viewing area. Since we... More

If you go to EPCOT for a day, don't leave until you have seen Illuminations as the park closes. The show itself is about 15 minutes long and it is one of the best shows at the Walt Disney World Resort. The fireworks, musical score, fountains, and spherical signboard (Earth) make it an absolutely wonderful show for people of all... More

Really enjoyed the fireworks at Epcot. However, if you are unsure of which evening shows to see and don't have time for all of them then I would recommend the Magic Kingdom fireworks and Fantasmic first.

Very fortunate we considered ourselves as we got to see this firework display 3 times in different circumstances, some of which you may not have considered... We visited California Grill at the top of Contemporary Resort for our meal, and in the distance, enjoyed the firework parts of Illuminations whilst tucking into a great meal. At the finale, the sky... More

We never want to miss this one!! The fireworks are not only the greatest, but the overall feeling of countries unifying is wonderful and that is the best thing I get from this! Afterwards, everyone is smiling from the experience of the displays, the music and the lights. And there are so many countries and cultures that are in attendance... More

Seemed like a big laser light show, we actually left early. It was easy to find a spot to see though. Neat, but it didn't hold the attention of our kiddo. A mexican quick-service restaurant is nearby and you could sit there and watch if you are able to get a spot. Very neat as all things Disney are, but... More

We enjoyed the show very much, especially the grand finally. We saw the show several times and liked to watch from the Canada steps and France (close to the lake). We could not see any reason to stand in line or go into any extra effort to see this show when you could easily see it from many places.

Seeing products from different countries is so much fun. While I am anti further accumulation of dust catchers, it is nonetheless so much fun to see items produced in other countries. I do have to restrain myself from adding to other people's clutter by getting souvenirs that are cute but take up space, where there is limited space to start... More

Best show at all of Disney World. A must see while at the parks. During the holiday season they added a 4th act to the show and it's amazing.
