    I was thinking of watching Illuminations from France (while eating a cheese plate and drinking wine). Is France a good viewing area for Illuminations; and where in France are good spots to watch from?

    Hi, Nicholas!

    As I sit here in the middle of an Ohio winter looking at snow, you certainly have painted a lovely picture of a warm evening strolling through the beautiful France pavilion in World Showcase!

    Any location around World Showcase Lagoon is great for viewing Illuminations.  I suggest you get your snacks and find a nice bench or spot near the water where you can see this amazing show filled with lasers, fireworks, and special effects.  You do not have to have "front row" viewing but you will want to be closer to the water than to the actual buildings in France. 

    If time allows after Illuminations, just find a nice resting spot and relax for 20 minutes or so until the crowds clear out.  Then enjoy a leisurely stroll to the front gates of Epcot in Future World, or out the International Gateway that leads to the Boardwalk area.  This park is so lovely in the evenings, I just love taking in the nighttime beauty of it all!

    Have a great time with a nice glass of wine and a bit of Disney magic!  Enjoy your evening.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
