    I would like to know how does the fast pass + works for the Illuminations show. Do we get a special spot to watch it?

    Hi Elisa, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    If you include viewing for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth among your FastPass+ selections, you’ll be able to watch the show from a reserved spot, right at the “bottom” of World Showcase Lagoon (directly across the lagoon from the American Adventure). It’s a great “front and center” viewing location for the show but, be warned, there is no seating in this area. Whenever I’ve watched the show from there, I find that a lot of people are sitting on the ground at first and then stand up when the show starts. 

    Depending on the time of year, the area can fill up pretty quickly, so make sure to arrive the moment your FastPass+ window opens up to get a perfect spot. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming vacation. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
