    Hi Bernie! Your answer about getting to Raglan Road from Epcot after the fireworks was very helpful. I forgot to mention, we have a car, does that make a difference? Thank You!

    Hi Rebecca!

    With a car, you will have to park at Epcot. That will make it a long trip from watching Illuminations in World Showcase to getting to your car. If you plan to be at Epcot right at park opening, that may still be your best bet. However, if you plan on arriving at Epcot later in the day, you might think about parking at Downtown Disney and then taking Disney transportation to the Beach Club; then you could walk to the International Gateway and enter Epcot. That will make it easier to leave after Illuminatons as I explained in my last answer. 

    There is not really a good choice since you have your own car. I think I would just park in Epcot for the day. Good luck with your decision and please write back with more questions.
