This week’s “After Dark” image was snapped in our Italy Pavilion, just in time for the start of “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.”

The show, which can be viewed from all around World Showcase, tells a story that celebrates the past, present and future of Earth through fireworks, visuals and an emotional soundtrack.

Which international pavilion is your favorite place to watch the show from? Tell us in the comments section below.


  • England! The water patio is a great place. Of course I’m somewhat biased as my wedding was at WDW and we had a dessert party viewing on the UK terrace area. 🙂 Fond memories!

  • Down wind !

  • Man, I miss Illuminations. The fireworks out here at Disneyland just don’t match up with WDW.

    Illuminitations RULES!!!!

  • I watch right in front of the Canada pavilion. There’s a tree there, and it looks like your view would be blocked, so it doesn’t pack out like other areas. I just show up around 10 minutes to showtime and have a perfect view!

  • Watching IlluminNations from Italy has been a big favorite for me and my family.

  • England.

  • Norway
