Tip: Pay attention to the wind.

When choosing a spot to watch Illuminations, be sure to take the wind into account. An open rail by the water is worthless if the wind is blowing in your face, all you’ll see is smoke. Look toward the torches along World Showcase Lagoon to see which way they are blowing. Head toward where the wind is blowing from so that the smoke from the fireworks will blow away from you as you watch the show.
