QUESTION: Looking for nightlife suggestions during our vacation to Orlando for Disney fun. ANSWER: Our family loves the festive nightlife around the giant lake at Epcot. They have a live Music band playing 3 times per evening, adults can drink beer or wine, Kids Love the night at the Park, and you have all the dining options from the world of restaurants. The highlight of the evening is the IllumiNations Celebration, a super show. Makes for a terrific family night out!

Best Viewing Spots

It is a nice show as the crowd gets fired up drinking alcohol at the Band Shell! Yes, the Music and beer spice up the park, and it becomes a much more lively crowd. Do know that llumiNations Reflections of Earth can be viewed all the way around the lake and you have less people on the far side between Mexico and Canada.

We thought you could see the fireworks from the free Boardwalk Area, just outside the gates. But no, not really and it is not worth trying. You have to go inside to see this one. Over at the Magic Kingdom, there you can see the fireworks from the resorts.
