I don't know if people have ever tried shooting Illuminations from the monorail exit platform. It was done completely out of inconvenience and running out of time. I was planning to shoot them from the bridge between Boarwalk and Beach Club but I just couldn't get there fast enough. Granted, none of these are ideal as half the show is effects done one the water but I took what I could get and I kind of like what I got for being one of my first times shooting Disney fireworks. Tips?

    I actually think this is more photogenic than shooting it from the audience viewpoint. Having Space Ship Earth in the foreground is more interesting. Think of this as Epcot's version of fireworks by the castle. Next time I'm there, I'm shooting it just like you did.

    Wow, this is great! What a cool vantage point, I never would have thought to shoot from there.

    Great shot! You don't often see fireworks and Spaceship Earth in the same photo.

    Really, really awesome shot. I love how you have the fireworks, SSE, and also the LASERS caught in the same frame. Amazing.
