A Magical Evening at Epcot®

Enjoy a magical evening full of surprises you won’t experience anywhere else! The fun begins inside the main hall of the American Adventure at Epcot®, where you’ll experience the classic elegance of Colonial America and enjoy a traditional American feast.

Be sure to save room for dessert! After dinner, we’ll savor a collection of delectable delights on a private veranda overlooking the World Showcase, where you’ll be enchanted by the premier night-time spectacular, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. During the show, the fiery glow of torches and sky-piercing lasers will reflect on the lagoon while the boom of thunderous fireworks echoes atop an original music score.
