When darkness falls at EPCOT, be sure to find your way to your favorite viewing spot for IllumiNations. The combination of lasers and fireworks light up both the sky and the faces of loved ones. There are lots of great places to view IllumiNations in World Showcase, where you’ll get a view of the show with the ball in the background. One of my favorites is Italy, where you can pretend you are watching from the canals of Venice. (note: this spot is sometimes closed for dessert parties) The rocky shore of China is also a great spot. For a unique “secret” spot try the balcony in front of the restaurant in Japan. You’ll be up high enough for an unobstructed view, but you won’t block the people inside.
