    Can you see IllumiNations show in Epcot from anywhere in the World Showcase or do you have to be in a special viewing area? If I am making my way around WS when it starts can I just stop where I am and see it?

    Hi Peggy,

    IllumiNations is an awesome presentation in Epcot.  It can be viewed anywhere throughout the World Showcase that offers a clear view of the World Showcase Lagoon.  The fireworks portions are easy to see but the Earth Globe sits on the water and you'll want an unobstructed view to get the full effect.

    In theory, if you are near the World Showcase Lagoon, you should be able to stop wherever you're at when IllumiNations begins and watch it. However, people typically start staking out a good spot early so if this is high on your priority list and you want a good spot, I'd try to find a spot 30 - 45 minutes prior to the scheduled time.  If you are visiting during a peak season, you may want to try earlier.

    IllumiNations is typically presented at 9:00 p.m. each evening.  Be sure to confirm this when you enter the park by picking up a Times Guide as schedules are always subject to change without notice.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
