    On the first night of our 1st trip to Disney this February, we have a 7:30 ADR at The Coral Reef. After diner, where should we go to see at least a bit of Illuminations? Thank you so much for all of your advice.

    Hi, Rebecca!  Illuminations is such a wonderful way to end a day at Epcot  . . . and what a great way to celebrate your first night of your first Disney trip! 

    Illuminations can be seen from any location around World Showcase Lagoon.  After your dinner at the Coral Reef, head straight to World Showcase Lagoon, find a nice spot and enjoy!  While it is nice to have "front row" viewing, remember that a lot of the show takes place up in the air, so there really are many great views of the show all around the lagoon.

    You can check the CALENDAR to see what time Illuminations is scheduled for the night you will be there.   The times will also be posted on the Times Guide which you can get when you enter the park.

    Make sure to stop by guest services to receive your "First Visit" button!  I hope you have a truly magical vacation!
