Illuminations: Reflections of Earth

Illuminations:  Reflections of Earth takes place around the World Showcase Lagoon  at EPCOT’s World Showcase. This fantastic night show incoporates fireworks, lasers, and water to bring you a spectacular show you won’t soon forget.  The theme of the show is the Past, Present, and Future of our World.  You’ll be mesmerized by the fire, water, and other special effects of this show.

  • Viewing spots can be found all around World Showcase.  Just pick your favorite country and stake out your spot!  We suggest getting a spot around 45 minutes to an hour beforehand.  
  • Take along some glow in the dark bracelets, necklaces, or Disney toys to add to the fun for the kids.
  • Be aware that there are lots of flashing, strobe light type effects in this show that may be scary or uncomfortable for some in your travel party.
  • The show lasts around 15 minutes.

This is a night show at Disney that is not to miss.  Everyone in your travel party will enjoy seeing the story of our Earth as it unfolds Disney-style.  Check your times guide when you enter EPCOT to make sure you don’t miss Illuminations:  Reflections of Earth!

Overall, we give this Disney night spectacular an “A”!

    We really enjoy the illuminations show. I love the classical music and all the excitement of fireworks mixed with the laser show and the images that portray from the globe. My family and I take it like ‘a picnic in the park’ experience. We grab some snacks from the food vendors close by, pick a spot on the green close to the lake and just sit back and relax with ‘dinner & a show’..

    As with all fireworks at Disney, they really know how to thrill the crowd :)

    I wish they would update this show. I enjoy it but it is getting old. Best tip,go to a restaurant and park, eat at 700-730 for dinner at Boardwalk, Beach or Yacht club, go in the International Gate entrance, watch the show just over the bridge and walk back out. You will beat the crowds.

    This is a wonderful thing to see, but you really do have to pick out a good spot early which is not so cool. I like to be able to enjoy my trip and just stop to see something, and that has never worked out the Illuminations and me

    This has always been our least favorite show. I’m not sure why…

    We went last month & at least on the night we were there it was different. The cauldrons around the lake were not lit & more “street lamps” were left lit. Seriously, in November is when you need that extra heat from the cauldrons! =)I’m hoping it was just a glitch day.

    I received your email with 6 things Seniors must do at WDW with #3 being the Illuminations Cruise and to book it early.
    When I clicked on the link I came to this page and I don’t see anything about a cruise. How and where do I book that?

    We can’t wait to see this when we head to WDW next!
