Luminous is actually the best night show Disney has EVER done! Genuinely!!!

Update: It was an AMAZING view. I synced the soundtrack up through a speaker (perfectly) and the show was absolutely stunning. Even without fountains, or spotlights, or others, I loved it so so much. I prefer it to HEA (based on videos I've seen, will decide tomorrow) and I far prefer it to Illuminations. What an amazing show.

The spot would be the bridge between the gateway and boardwalk But to be fair…I don’t know what the angles are on the latest temporary show? It may have a higher elevation now?

It's where I was recommended by other members of the forums and some irl friends. It may not be a "fireworks spot" but the photos I've seen look good and it appears to be the best place to watch from outside the park

That’s not a “fireworks spot” Look out toward the water from anywhere and you’ll see it

Omg sweeeet... this and the photo someone sent before looks like a great spot. Thank you!!!

Yes, but a dock is probably... outside the building... I've never been, so I was just asking where it was

You know it’s all one building, right?

Never watched fireworks from there but I'd assume it's a pretty solid view:

Ahhh I see now thank you!!

I'd assume the Friendship dock. There's also a dock right next to it on the zig zag portion too that could work but might be blocked by the lighthouse.

Hi, can anyone tell me where this is? We can't do Beaches and Cream but we're eating at Ale and Compass. Where is yacht and beach lighthouse dock? I can't seem to find it on the map

It reminded me of the part during Epcot Forever during "Celebrate the future hand in hand" makes me think only added to that part of Luminous because of leftover Epcot Forever pyro.

That pyro effect is so reminiscent of the beginning of the old Peace On Earth holiday tag.
