    Can you view Illuminations from Future World? I have a mobility disability and I’m concerned about exiting the park with huge crowds after the show is over. Staying at Pop Century.

    Hi Danielle!

    Watching fantastic fireworks light up the night sky is one of my favorite ways to end a magical day at the Walt Disney World Resort.  That being said, I do not like fighting crowds to exit the park after the show is over!  Because of this, we usually watch the fireworks from a spot near the exit of the park, or we wait until the crowds have dispersed to leave.  When we do this, we can explore the park when it is less crowded and enjoy some of the pixie-dusted touches you may not notice when there are so many people around!

    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is a beautiful fireworks show that also includes effects around the World Showcase Lagoon that are closer to the ground.  That being said, you should be able to view the fireworks portion of the show from unobstructed locations in Future World, but you will unfortunately miss some of the magical effects that happen around the World Showcase Lagoon.  My suggestion would be to find a comfortable spot near the World Showcase Lagoon to view the fireworks, grab some scrumptious snacks from one (or a few) of the countries, and have a relaxing evening.  After the fireworks, enjoy the calm and beauty of Epcot while you slowly make your way toward the park's exit!

    A few years ago, we were actually able to see the fireworks at both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios from Disney's Pop Century Resort!  Since it has been a few years, things may have grown up around the resort or changed, but feel free to ask the Cast Members at the Front Desk about the best potential viewing locations around the resort!  Also, make sure you check out all of the services available for Guests with disabilities!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
