    Going to be at Epcot one evening eating at Via Napoli where would be a good place to view the fireworks that night?

    Hi Nicole!

    How wonderful that you are planning an evening at EpcotIllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, the nighttime fireworks show at Epcot, is one of my favorite shows at Walt Disney World Resort! I always find it to be so inspiring and touching and it is a must-do for my family. There are many great locations around World Showcase from where to watch this amazing show but here are a few of my favorite:

    1.  Italy.  Considering you will be dining at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria, I would recommend that you try the Italy Isola first.  Although it is sometimes used for private parties, when it’s available, it provides one of the best views of the show.  

    2.  Japan.  If you don’t mind walking a little and you have some time between dinner and the show, the upper level terrace at Tokyo Dining is a great spot.  It not only provides an elevated view, it also provides some coverage in case of rain.
    3.  France and United Kingdom.  My all-time favorite viewing spot is on the bridge connecting France and the United Kingdom.  Although a bit far from Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria, it provides a fantastic view of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.   

    Ideally, to secure the best spots, you will want to be there 20-30 minutes before showtime.
    Nicole, I hope you have a wonderful dining experience at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria and a great time viewing Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.  If I can help you with anything else, please let me know.
