    Last week we were able to select our Fast Pas Plus and Magic Bands!! For Epcot we chose Test Track, Soarin and Illuminations as our 3. What exactly does the Illuminations do for us? Reserved area? Time?? I just wasn't too sure! 41 Days!!! Thank You!

    Hi Casey! Congratulations on being a test family for the new Disney technology using Magic Bands and Fastpass+.

    Your choices for Epcot sound great as both Soarin and Test Track can have long lines throughout the day.  Your third choice for Illuminations would also be a choice for our family as it is our favorite fireworks and laser show on property.  By reserving the show you will be allowed to watch from an excellent position around the lake that is reserved for other guests who are using Fastpass+ option.  The location can change so please check when you enter the park where they have it set up but it has been located in the area between the two shops right at the end of the lagoon as you enter the World Showcase. This will allow you to enjoy other attractions and fun instead of planting yourself early at a point around the lagoon for a good spot to watch the show.

    The reserved section has been standing room only but again things can change as they progress with the testing to see what works best. Your countdown is now in the 30's and I am sure everyone is beyond excited about this great trip coming up for your family!
