8 Things No One Tells You About Visiting Epcot in Walt Disney World

1. Illuminations Viewing

Towards the end of your night in Epcot, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth can be the perfect send-off right before you leave the park. Taking place in the World Showcase Lagoon, there are a number of great viewing points offering great vantage points. The most popular viewing areas include the World Showcase Plaza, which is essentially front and center, as well as the Canada Pavilion. In between the UK and France pavilion is also a popular spot, as are the Mexico and Italy pavilions. Some lesser known spaces include Norway and the China pavilion and the terrace on the second story of the Mitsokoshi Department Store. Of course, you can forego having to stake out a viewing spot by either booking a FastPass+ selection, or making a reservation for the Illuminations Dessert Party.

About Ryan Miller

Ryan loves all things Disney: from the smallest details to the biggest surprises and all of the magic in between. He loves the fireworks of Wishes, the thrill of Tower of Terror and of course, the dining at Disney Restaurants. As of yet, however, he has been unable to replicate his favourite dishes and snacks at home. In between trips, you can usually find him reading about the history of the parks and attractions when he’s not at work for his local public library in Burlington Ontario. Ryan’s favourite Disney moment was proposing in front of Cinderella’s Castle to his (now) fiancée, Lauren.
