    Decent fireworks show that incorporates lasers. Wish it lasted longer.

    Fireworks are incredible with fantastic music. Great atmosphere around the lagoon prior to showtime.

  • Ian W.

    This show is pushing 15 years, but it's still my favorite WDW night time show. Something about the precision fireworks and engrossing atmosphere.

    Another awesome Disney production.

    Harvey Enokida · December 23, 2014
  • Danielle T.

    It was sooooo amazing. Gotta love the fireworks. And fyi don't try to make it around the world in just one day

    The fp+ for this I feel is worth it.

    Kevin CA · September 18, 2014
  • Ayaz H.

    If you didn't get a FastPass+ for it, find a spot close to the railing at least an hour before showtime.

    Ayaz Hyder · September 6, 2014
  • Sean L.

    A fantastic fireworks show that includes dancing waters, lasers, and an original soundtrack. A must see for visitors of Epcot.

    Sean Leb · August 10, 2014

    One of my all time favorites!!!! :)

  • Wildmark L.

    Best Firework Show at WDW! Get a front row seat!

    Wildmark Lion · May 3, 2014
  • Jack D.

    Get the fastpass. The viewing area is right at the front of the international gateway and all the effects are built in a way where they're best viewed from that point.

    I don't like fireworks but I lived this show!

    Stephen L. · December 23, 2013
  • Robert P.

    The show runs longer this time of year for an added holiday encore. So the 14 minute runtime is more of a guideline.

    Robert Philcox · December 16, 2013
  • Greg B.

    I highly recommend getting a party boat. It is an incredible way to watch the show.

    Greg B · December 8, 2013
  • Dennis M.

    A must see firework show ESP in the month of December.

    Dennis Marion · December 4, 2013

    Great view right next to American theater

    Pay attention to the wind direction before you select a sport to make sure the wind doesn't blow the smoke in your direction.

    Sander R. · November 13, 2013
  • Steve H.

    Best view is from Mexico - amazing!

    Steve Hey · November 5, 2013

    Want to have a perfect view of IllumiNations? Try going on the bridge between the UK and France Pavillions!

    Have you watched it in 3D???

    Jarrid Crespo · October 5, 2013
  • Nick H.

    If you happen to see a plexiglas box in front of you along the seawall, know you're in for an extra awesome show!

    Nick Hafele · October 2, 2013
  • María Laura C.

    Best parade ever!!!

    María Laura Ciarrocchi Pérez · September 18, 2013

    Don't miss it!

    Raquel Paz · August 30, 2013

    Get a seat by the window in Hacienda for a great view of the fireworks!

    Becky Oriente · August 14, 2013
  • Mel S.

    iPads for recording the entertainment take away the quality for the other guests. Don't use them. Please.

    Mel Stone · July 24, 2013
  • Donna D.

    Watch in England and exit International Gateway

    Am I the only one who remembers and misses Tapestry of Nations???

    Jessie Bollen Redding · July 9, 2013
  • Jack R.

    These people don't know what a firework show is. Come see Thunder Over Louisville in Kentucky, then you'll have something to "oooh" and "aaah" over.

    Jack Riddle · July 1, 2013
  • Matthew E.

    L. A. M. E. - was given to us for a very bad check-in experience. Does not even begin to compensate for the horrible time at check-in.

    Matthew Eggert · July 1, 2013
  • Travis W.

    Don't sit by showcase plaza, stand up or you'll only get a view of ass.

    Travis Wright · May 16, 2013
  • Ricardo R.

    Best fireworks show ever!

    Ricardo Ramiro · April 17, 2013
  • Marc L.

    Make sure the wind is blowing away from your viewing location if you don't want a firework smoke cloud to engulf you!

    Marc Lorenzo · April 7, 2013
  • Sean V.

    Show started right at 9 as we were walking from Germany to Norway. I agree Norway is the best place to watch. Fireworks were shot off directly across from there and ended right at 9:13 pm. Great show

    Sean V · March 30, 2013
  • Richard J.

    For a good view of the lagoon, please your seat at least 40 minutes before show time.

    Richard Jones · March 25, 2013
  • Paige T.

    Stage area near Canada is a great view.

    Paige Tocco Terracciano · March 13, 2013
  • Mallory T.

    Japan is a great place to view!

    Mallory Thomasson · February 23, 2013
  • Randy

    Five minutes out of fifteen are great. The globe is 10 minutes of filler.

    Randy · February 10, 2013
  • Ashley R.

    Get seats early the closer to show time the more crowded it gets

    Ashley Reams · February 3, 2013
  • Camila P.

    I love watching it from the Port of Entry. Amazing view!

    Camila Perlingeiro · January 8, 2013
  • Kristin T.

    Best soundtrack ever!

    Kristin Tangel · January 7, 2013
  • Michelle M.

    Amazing, just amazing! Don't miss this show at Epcot!

    More than 26,000 feet of lights outline the World Showcase pavilions — a string long enough to stretch across the Golden Gate Bridge more than six times.

    artimus · November 22, 2012
  • Scott D.

    The bridge near the walkway to the beach club has a great unobstructed view.

    Scott Damassa · November 11, 2012
  • Danny

    If you have a chase credit card, you have a good view in between the two shops past Mexico!!

    Danny · November 5, 2012

    Fridays & Saturdays, show is at 10pm.
