Illuminations is a great fireworks show. This review is focused specifically on the Illuminations Sparkling Dessert Party aspect. This was our second time attending the party and we were not impressed the second time around. The party has tables set up but no seating. Many...More

What a waste of money. I understand Disney's policy regarding ages for their dinning plans. But $ 50.00 for a 15 year old for dessert is unacceptable. I can see for someone over 21 because there is alcohol involved. There should be an option for...More

We got a spot about an hour before illuminations started, just so no one was obscuring our view. It’s a great fireworks show and I really enjoyed it. You can pretty much see it from anywhere in world showcase. Glad we went to see it...More

IllumiNations is the nightly fireworks show at Epcot. This is a must-see if you’re visiting the park for the day. 9:00 show time, but you’ll want to look for a good viewing spot by 8:30 pm or earlier on a crowded day. There are great...More

We came out of Teppan Edo just in time to enjoy this fantastic fireworks show! The kids were tired, but we stuck it out anyway, and they loved it. The music and the fireworks were perfectly timed for a truly memorable show.

Love this show. My favourite of all the Disney shows. Will be interesting to see what comes when the show is updated with new technology as rumoured
