  • Want to have a perfect view of IllumiNations? Try going on the bridge between the UK and France Pavillions!
  • Crew of 9. Over 1,000 fireworks shells. 3 full color lasers. Amusement Today Golden Ticket holder for Best Outdoor Production! Cheer for the Crew..... It's a LOT of work!
  • Finish the day back at the World Showcase Lagoon for an unbelievable fireworks show!
  • iPads for recording the entertainment take away the quality for the other guests. Don't use them. Please.
  • Clap and cheer for the Crew! It's a LOT of work every day to make this possible!
  • How much pyro can you handle? Do the Wishes/Illuminations sprint! You're going to need to make sure they're an hour apart but can be done!
  • If you stand behind the World Traveler shops they may open an extra even closer viewing area (If the wind is calm)
  • There are plenty of great viewing locations but if you want to exit the park quickly & have an awesome view, watch IllumiNations from World Showcase Plaza with Spaceship Earth behind you.
  • Can't imagine a bad seat for this show just make sure you get close to the water.
  • The best fireworks show in Disney! Better than the Magic Kingdom's Wishes.
  • Located above the Mexico pavilion, this is where IllumiNations is controlled from.
  • Find a seat early cuz it fills up fast
  • Between Mexico and Norway is the BEST AND ONLY PLACE to watch the show other than VIP.
  • Best Fireworks show I've seen personally! A whole lot better than Magic Kingdom, Disneyland, and local 4th of July fireworks
  • Don't call it fireworks to the cast members :)
  • The show tells the story of Earth and is divided into three movements titled "Chaos," "Order," and "Meaning." The music has an African tribal ring to it also.
  • Make sure the wind is blowing away from your viewing location if you don't want a firework smoke cloud to engulf you!
  • Watch the torches to find out which way the wind is blowing and avoid the smoke from the fireworks.
  • Sit upwind for best viewing. Look at the torch flames to see where the smoke will go.
  • You need watch on mexico side of the pond.
