Awesome to get such a great spot for Illuminations!
Mine is definitely the IllumiNations music itself, although obviously Tapestry of Nations is on the CD as well.

Wondering World Showcase and watching Illuminations was a great way to end the evening.
Definitely!

I can't wait to see how the whole magic bands saga ends up. We had problems with our MBs a few years ago, and my Dh ended up having to go back to the desk at least 3-4 times to sort it out. Ours wouldn't open our door at ASMu, and of course we were alllll the way at the back of the resort.

My normally chill hubby was not so chill that day.

I loved all the photos of BC and Japan! That kimono section in the store is where my dd parks it for a while to practice her Japanese with the workers. It's usually very quiet in there with most people just browsing so hopefully she's not in anyone's way. The employees always seem thrilled to help her try out her conversational Japanese.

Ah well, let's just say something similar to you may have also happened to us during this vacation....

The is quite bizarre with Epcot clearing out like that with no more crowds! Nice shots of Morocco and France at night. So cool you were able to get a spot for Illuminations up front as that is next to impossible, just before the show! That's never happened to me before. I always give myself plenty of time to have a good place for viewing. I have the Illuminations cd and is one of my favorites!
