    Is the illuminations every night @ 9pm?

    Hi Patsy!

    The beautiful IllumiNations:Reflections of Earth show held nightly in Walt Disney World's Epcot park is my absolute favorite of all their shows. It is a must see during every vacation and often more then once.

    In general this show is held nightly at 9pm when the World Showcase closes. During the fall Epcot International Food and Wine Festival the Illuminations show will be at 9:30pm on Friday and Saturday when the park hours are extended for the Festival. 

    During the Epcot's Candlelight Processional season which is from Thanksgiving to New Years, the Illuminations show is also set for 9:30pm due to the extended time it takes for the Candlelight shows. This is especially my favorite time to watch as they will have an extension to the normal show featuring holiday fireworks and songs.

    Disney can change a schedule at any time and thus it is best to check with your resort concierge for the latest schedule for Illuminations.
