    If you reserve the Epcot IllumiNation show as one of your 3 fastpass+ advance experiences. Show is in the evening does that mean you can not reserve any more fastpass+ experiences for the rest of the day since the you have not use all three of the fastpass

    Hi Frances! Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You have clearly done your homework regarding the Disney FastPass+ service!

    Once you have redeemed your initial three selections, you may begin making additional FastPass+ selections, one at a time, throughout the day. My family and I love to get to the theme parks when they open so we typically make our initial selections for early in the day and back to back when possible.

    While the Illuminations: Reflections of Earth FastPass+ viewing area is ideal, there are oodles of amazing spots around World Showcase Lagoon that do not require FastPass+ selections. If there are other attractions on your "must do" list, you might opt for those so you can continue making FastPass+ selections throughout your day during your visit at Epcot.

    I'm so glad you are including IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth in your vacation plan because it will be ending in the second half of 2019. It's such a treat to get to experience it! We typically find a spot around the World Showcase Lagoon about an hour before IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth begins. Typically one or more of us will stay in our spot while others go and purchase snacks and/or beverages for our traveling party. The most important recommendation I can make is to pay attention to the wind. Try to avoid standing in a location where the wind is hitting you in the face. While it might feel nice to have the breeze blowing against you prior to IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, it may not be as pleasant when the smoke from the fireworks, etc. makes it your way.

    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is such an amazing way to conclude a fun day in Epcot! Enjoy!
