    last time we visited Epcot we had to leave early & missed the fireworks we vsiit again in september & definatly want to see them, can you recommend a good place to stand or maybe we could sit having a drink somewhere if fireworks can be seen all ov

    Hi Laura:

    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is a wonderful and truly powerful fireworks show at Epcot.  Great places to watch the fireworks include the area around the Mexico Pavilion (there are some benches here, but you have to get them REALLY early), the Italy Pavilion, the second floor of the Japan Pavilion (outside), and the bridge between the UK and France Pavilions.  If you want to enjoy a meal while watching IllumiNations, try to book the Rose and Crown at the UK Pavilion.

    For me, I find that there are so many great places to catch IllumiNations, and I enjoy World Showcase so much, that I'd rather spend more time walking around the shops of World Showcase than stake out a prime firework viewing spot too early. 

    Enjoy your vacation.
