Epcot closes its day with this nighttime spectacular on and around the World Showcase Lagoon. Images are projected upon the Spaceship Earth geosphere, as well as globes floating on the lagoon, as lasers and fireworks punctuate an original soundtrack that celebrates the world around us. Come early on busy days to claim a space on the pathways around the lagoon that will give you a good view of the show.

The show is showing it's age. Also more and more viewing area's are paid and that is a bad thing. - O T

The best WDW night show. It shouldn't be missed. My favorite viewing location is between Norway and China. - Sean Huckel

My least favorite of the three Disney world night shows. Its OK from a good viewing spot, but mediocre if you don't have a good location. The scenes on the globe are often hard to make out. The fireworks are the best part of the presentation. It was disappointing since I expected more due to some raving? reviews. - Rob Pastor

I agree with others below me who seem to just not "get it." After seeing the great reviews for IllumiNations, I regretted missing it and made a point to stay until closing the second time we visited Epcot. I was disappointed. Despite being told that the view would be good from anywhere in World Showcase, we watched from the area between Morocco and France and we could not see what was happening on the globe at all. It was just too far away. The fireworks were nice, but not anything above and beyond a regular fireworks show. The best thing about it was the music, which would have been better if they stopped blasting Moroccan music from the building behind us. - Renee Michelle
