    Is Illuminations in Epcot visible outside of the park?

    Hi Amy, Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.

    The answer is yes and no. The fireworks from IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, which shows nightly at 9:00pm at Epcot (weather permitting), can be seen from the Boardwalk Area. You can stroll around the Boardwalk and Beach Club area, while viewing the fireworks in the distance. However, the best parts of IllumiNations, which are the illuminated globe, music, etc. can't be enjoyed from there. I consider IllumiNations to be a "must-see" on each trip, and you'll want to be sure to watch it from inside Epcot one night. Then on some other evening if you want to enjoy the Boardwalk area, grab an ice-cream at Beaches and Cream in the Beach Club and then watch the fireworks from afar afterward.

    Hope this helps and have a magical vacation,
