    Why would I book a Fast Pass for Illuminations? Anyway do they have a special seating places?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Aurelijus!

    When it comes to nighttime spectaculars and fireworks shows at Walt Disney World Resort, like IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot, I don't normally book a FastPass+ for myself and my family. There is usually ample space for all guests, and I can often walk up around 30 minutes before and find a spot that works for me. In your case, though, it might be a really smart idea to make that FastPass+ selection, so let's chat about why you might choose IllumiNations over another attraction on your upcoming vacation.

    After an incredible 20-year run, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth is coming to an end on September 30, 2019, which as you know, is during your vacation. It is such a beloved fireworks show that guests will be coming to Epcot from everywhere to catch the last few showings. If you book a FastPass+ selection for it during your trip, you'll be guaranteed a great spot between the Mexico and Canada Pavilions, which is pretty much a front and center view. I expect Epcot to be a pretty popular place to be the last few nights of September, so having a guaranteed spot might not be a bad idea if you want to bid farewell to one of the most moving and inspiring shows at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Have a magical day, Aurelijus!
