    Is Illuminations back on every night?
    I'm thinking about something in the back of my mind that says Epcot closes early on a Friday evening and I assume that meant no Illuminations :unsure:

    The only reason that I can think that EPCOT might have closed early is that they were hosting some sort of special media event.

    I'm going to Epcot on Sunday. I'll let you know Monday or Tuesday.

    Thanks gwennie.
    Things may be back to normal now but I do know about 18 months back, we went to Epcot on a Friday evening just for Illuminations and the park was closing early by one hour and Illuminations weren't showing. My head is telling me it wasn't just that particular friday evening either :unsure:

    Hmmmm, really? Have not heard this, nor seen EPCOT close early (unless there was a very rare special event).

    It doesn't make any sense at all to close EPCOT early on a Friday. That's the beginning of the weekend (of course) and many "local" folks head to Disney for the weekends...

    Weird...
