    Do you have to have a fast pass to view any of the light shows?

    Hi Barbara,

    Welcome and thank you for bringing your question to the Moms Panel.  Fast Pass + is really not required for any rides, attractions or shows.  The Fast Pass will just streamline your time waiting in line.  As far as the evening fireworks shows:  Wishes Nighttime SpectacularIllumiNations: Reflections of Earth or Fantasmic, the Fast Pass will provide a preferred viewing area.  I have found that there are plenty of great vantage points around each of the theme parks where you can view the evening festivities and not use one of your coveted Fast Passes for that privilege.  IllumiNations in particular, can be viewed from any area around World Showcase and you will not miss a jaw dropping moment of this fabulous show.  It is required, however, that for every nightly event, you crane your neck to look high into the sky and utter "oohs" and "aahs" throughout the entire performance.  The shows are fantastic because no one does fireworks better than Disney.  

    I hope you have a firecracker of a vacation!  Let us know if we can assist with any of your other travel plans. 

    Be Magical,

    Leanne T.
