It wasn't a bad size - Cly got it set in a half moon setting
Illuminations was spectacular as usual but this time we happened to be in the 'smoke zone' which was interesting. We didn't see the fireworks clearly but saw cool colors.
We enjoyed a few boat rides at EPCOT on our last full day in Florida
