    Why is a Fastpass offered for Illuminations at Epcot if it is a general viewing event?

    Greetings, Laureen, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for this excellent question regarding the FastPass+ viewing area for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot.

    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is such a poignant fireworks show, chronicling the history of our planet with the heartfelt message celebrating the spirit of humanity. Even though there are many vantage points around World Showcase Lagoon, Laureen, in my opinion, the FastPass+ viewing area has an advantage because of a near perfect axis view vantage point, as well as the close proximity to the main entrance making your exit more convenient at the end of the display.

    Your decision, Laureen, whether or not to secure a FastPass+ experience here truly depends on your needs and preferences, as well as how you intend to utilize your remaining FastPass+selections throughout your day at Epcot.

    Have you heard about the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party? This dessert event will place you in clear view of IllimiNations: Refections of Earth with an array of treats from around globe. Truly a feast for the senses, Laureen.

    Be sure to customize and control your vacation before and during your visit through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for your Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ Planning, personalizing MagicBands and much more.

    We hope this information is helpful to you, Laureen and would be honored to be of any future assistance with your Disney vacation planning.

    Best Disney Wishes!
