I chose illuminations because I love all the different elements involved. The music, the "torches", the lasers, fireworks, water, etc. LOVE the music. Can always find a place where I don't feel crowded to watch it either.

My first thought was to vote for Spectromagic and WISHES! But since Spectro isn't likely to return :(, I had to vote for Illuminations. My favorite fireworks display.

Spectro is not returning.. Sorry...

Illuminations remains the best night time show... in my most humble of opinions of course...

Even knowing SpectroMagic is dead and buried, I had to go with that one. Just something about the music with that parade that lightens my heart. It is sorely missed.

BUT, for all intents and purposes, this is another poll that should have an "E" option -- All Of The Above!! I couldn't think of making a trip to WDW without making time for each evening show.

I chose Illuminations. I've seen Fantasmic! once, and have no desire to see that one again.

Illuminations is by far my favorite. The music and fireworks display are fantastic. I listen to the music at home. Can't wait to see it next month! :mickey:

34 days!!!!! :joy:

Illuminations - easily. IMHO the best fireworks show ever!

09-15-2013, 08:29 PM
Illuminations! If I'm just going by "show only", it would be a tie between that and Spectro/Wishes, but I love the enormity of Illuminations and the music that lingers afterwards. Plus, hanging out at the end and gazing at the views surrounding the lagoon adds a sense of serenity to the entire experience.

I have always thought illuminations was VERY cerebral. It is our favourite...show.:thumbsup:

Fantasmic! Best show ever!

Illuminations for me.

09-18-2013, 08:42 AM
I enjoy them all except Illuminations

09-18-2013, 12:23 PM
Our favorite is just Wishes - without any parade attachment.

09-22-2013, 11:11 AM
Main Street Electrical Parade and Wishes!! :mickey:

09-22-2013, 11:18 AM
I love them all but I have to go with Electrical Parade and Wishes! :mickey:

09-22-2013, 09:45 PM
Really only 8 for Fantasmic?? :down:

09-23-2013, 12:38 PM
Love spectomagic's music...It it the best!!! :mickey:

09-23-2013, 01:37 PM
Illuminations is great! :thumbsup:

I love, love, love wishes. However the past couple of times I have stayed to watch it have been soooo :crowd: , it is not enjoyable
So, I chose illuminations.

* I should mention this was not during peak seasons either. :(

I chose Electrical Parade in a tough choice over Fantasmic, which are both trailing the poll. Interesting. :mickey:

09-24-2013, 01:47 PM
I love Fantasmic!

09-26-2013, 06:46 PM
Score another for Illuminations! Makes me cry every time (mainly because I'm a sap, but still), and it has by far the best soundtrack. That 11 minute instrumental sticks with you! :D

09-26-2013, 09:48 PM
IllumiNations for me, and it isn't even close. It's old, but I see no reason for it to change at this point. Enhanced? Sure. But no need for a full overhaul.

Celebrate the Magic is fantastic as well.

I used to love Fantasmic!, but it is in such disrepair at this point that it has lost some of its luster. It's still my next favorite, though.

I never liked the Main Street Electrical Parade and much preferred SpectroMagic.

I'm so tired of Wishes. Time for something new there.

09-26-2013, 10:15 PM
Fantasmic is my absolute favorite. Makes me cry every time I see it. I like Illuminations also but something about Fantasmic gets me every time!

09-28-2013, 11:30 PM
The meaning behind Illuminations puts it above the rest... It's a very good show.

09-29-2013, 08:38 AM
Hard choices.
Fantasmic has a lot of pull just because it is seated. By the time of the evening shows it is hard to stand.
I am in EPCOT a lot so I enjoy seeing Illuminations from different areas, but again, no seating.
Wishes is lovely, but the crowds are not, and it means a long time standing.
Hey where is the Electrical Water Pageant. I love that too.:)

MSEP. It set the standard for nighttime parades and shows, and for nostalgia.
