    I am really excited to see the EPCOT Forever show. Is it like Illuminations where I will need to see the center of the lagoon, or will I just need to stand somewhere that I can see the sky and the pavilions? Thanks!

    Hi there, Megan! Thanks so much for coming back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    I had the pleasure of viewing EPCOT Forever back in December and was absolutely blown away from the amazing lighting effects and pyrotechnics set to some sentimental and uplifting music. My favorite part of the show were the kites flying high above the World Showcase Lagoon in time with the music. 

    Megan, you can view EPCOT Forever from anywhere in EPCOT that you can see the lagoon, similar to how you were able to view Illuminations. I have heard that the best places to view the show are both the bridge that connects the France Pavilion to the UK Pavilion and anywhere along the lake in the Mexico Pavilion. 

    These spots fill up pretty quickly, so if you want to make sure that you secure a great spot, I would recommend that you get there at least 30 to 45 minutes before the show starts. Megan, did you know that EPCOT Forever viewing is also available as one of your FastPass+ selections? The FastPass+ viewing area is located where Future World meets the World Showcase and provides spectacular views of the show. 

    If you are looking to treat yourself, I have also heard fabulous things about the Frozen Ever After Dessert Party where you will get guaranteed seating for the show while you indulge your sweet tooth before embarking on a journey through Arendelle on Frozen Ever After. 

    I hope that this helped, Megan. Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help in your planning adventure! 

    See you real soon!
