At night Epcot puts on a 12 minute long nightly show called IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.
The show includes music, fireworks, water effects, a massive globe. I must say it is extremely well done and quite a bit different from the other nighttime shows at Disney.
I’ve read different recommendations about where to sit and so far I’ve seen Illuminations from 3 different places. For us sitting near Morocco has been the best viewing place, because there’s hardly anyone sitting over there. I like not having to deal with the crowd that forms on the opposite side. My least favorite place has been near Canada, because the crowd was so thick we simply could not see.
A 350,000 pound globe comes out over the water.
For those of you wondering if parts of this show can be seen from outside of Epcot, the answer is yes. If you are out in the boardwalk area you will see a lot of the fireworks.
