    Where is it best to view the fireworks from EPCOT when we are staying at the Beach Club?

    Hi Diane!

    Illuminations: Reflections of Earth is the Epcot park's fireworks and laser show done nightly throughout the year. It is my favorite of all Disney night shows and I have so many fond memories of it over the past years since its beginning.

    This show can really only be seen and appreciated by being in the park watching around the lake. So much of it is done at water level so actually being there is the best way to see it all. Many guests staying at the Beach Club Resort have the chance to see the top fireworks and definitely hear the noise as well as some of the music if the winds are blowing towards the resort. Some guests find a spot on the bridge that connects over to the Boardwalk Resort but over the past years the trees have grown up so much that this doesn't even offer a full view anymore.

    If your budget allows you might want to consider booking an Illuminations Cruise. You will board your own private pontoon boat with driver at the Yacht Club marina. You will then enjoy a leisure trip down to Hollywood Studios before heading back to get into position under the bridge in Epcot that connects the United Kingdom and France areas. This is a prime spot for watching the show and one of my favorite ways to do so when I vacation there.

    It is definitely not a show to miss so somehow plan it into your itinerary for your vacation!
