    We will be visiting in April for my daughter's sweet 16th and want to know where the best place to view Illuminations? Thank you!

    Hi Heather,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    Walt Disney World is a wonderful destination perfect for any celebration, and it’s certainly a great way to celebrate a Sweet 16.

    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is one of my most favorite nighttime spectaculars. The visually stunning storytelling, the musical score, and — of course — the fireworks all combine to create a captivating experience.

    One of the best options to score a prime viewing area for IllumiNations is to make a FastPass+ selection for the experience. The FastPass+ viewing area is located at the Showcase Plaza area near the Port of Entry merchandise store. You’ll have a fine view of World Showcase Lagoon and a great spot to enjoy Illuminations.

    Another option to consider is the Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at Epcot World Showcase. You can enjoy sweet specialty treats and celebratory beverages and you’ll be seated in a great viewing location for Illuminations. After Illuminations, you can experience Frozen Ever After and a visit to Arendelle.

    You can find other optimal viewing spots for Illuminations around the World Showcase, including near the pavilions for Italy and Mexico, and the bridge between the United Kingdom and France pavilions.

    Here’s wishing your daughter a Most Happy Sweet 16 Birthday celebration!
