Topic of the Week: Parades & Shows What is your favorite location for watching (or photographing) IllumiNations?

This is my favorite fireworks show, I can't say I have a favorite place to watch, as most locations are great to see it. This trip we will watch it one night in the park and hope to watch it a second time from BC beach. - DizneyGirl  892.3 #7 4:42AM
My husband and i usually watch it in France. We get some French pastries and sit at a few tables right next to the water. Usually about an hour before it starts. Then we enjoy the show. I didn't love where we had seen it this year though.we were at a gala and had vip seating for illuminations. Didint get to see a whole lot of it because there were 500+ people in the section lol - reedball  5.7 #377 5:25AM
Fantastic show! The last couple of times we've seen it we stood by the 2 large stores at the entrance to World Showcase. - jacdanfan  10969.4 #3 5:31AM
I love illuminations!! Thanks for asking this question. Every trip we've watched from a different area. None of them were bad but I know their are better spots. I can't wait to read what everyone else does. πŸ˜ƒ - Schramke  545.8 #15 5:40AM
Last year we watched it from inside La Hacienda de San Angel restaurant! We had a table right by the huge windows! And it was fabulous watching out from there, the sounds and music were great also! The other times, we just stopped wherever we were at the time to stop and watch. You can pretty much watch it from anywhere. :-) - JessiBelle22  78.4 #82 6:09AM
Great food at la hacienda!! Lol - mickeynme  173.9 #51 9:58AM
It is!! I agree, and it's a beautiful restaurant! - JessiBelle22  78.4 #82 10:27AM
I'm so glad you mentioned that! Many years ago I discovered the magic of IllumiNations from the Rose and Crown by accident. I've watched from there a couple times since. Well, the secret is out and late dinner ressies are hard to come by. So... This year I booked a late dinner at La Haciencda de San Angel! I love Mexican food and am really looking forward to trying it! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1258.9 #4 5:00PM
Love it , it's my favorite !!!! We try to watch it from a different spot each time . Can't say that I have a favorite yet . - skcanfield  550.5 #14 6:14AM
Anywhere UP wind. - Disneymba  39.3 #5140 6:33AM
We like to watch it on the left side of the Crown Pub - tomevans13  251.9 #34 9:29AM
Usually by italy is a good spot on the stairs or actually anywhere around the showcase is pretty good. It's such a beautiful show=) - mickeynme  173.9 #51 9:59AM
We always watch near Mexico. It's close to the margaritas and closer to the exit. - leveretttltl  89.6 #78 12:24PM
Same here. Mexico - 5disneylovers  1143.9 #5 1:05PM

Me with my margarita and my hubby with his beer. - yessy  224.9 #39 2:47PM
I'm definitely looking forward to IllumiNations and margaritas! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1258.9 #4 5:01PM
My favorite shows on this side would have to be Festival of The Lion King and Illuminations. At DL they're Fantasmic! and World of Color! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #57 2:07PM
Not counting Mickey's Soundsational Parade and MSEP though, but they're also favorites! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #57 2:08PM
MSEP is my favorite parade anywhere (although I've only seen it at DL) and my favorite nighttime show is DL's Fantasmic! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1258.9 #4 5:04PM
