    If we have a 7:35 ADR at Le Cellier, will our family miss out on IllumiNations at 9? Will there still be a good spot to see everything? We missed out on both last trip, and would hate to miss it again! Thanks for all of your help!

    Hi Kimberly,

    It should be possible for you to catch a 9 pm showing of Illuminations on the night of your Le Cellier reservation.  I recommend that you arrive at the restaurant 15-20 minutes prior to your reservation.  As soon as you are seated, mention to your server that you intend to watch Illuminations.  They will make every effort to ensure that you are served dinner in time to enjoy it at a reasonable pace before heading out to view the show.  You won't need to leave Le Cellier more than a few minutes before 9 pm as there are plenty of good viewing spots for Illuminations right there in the Canada pavilion. 

    If your dinner is running a bit late, ask your server if you can step out of the restaurant to enjoy the show before dessert.  Our server at Via Napoli permitted us to do this during our last vacation.  We left our Key to the World card with the manager as a guarantee that we would return and he granted our request.  However, I don't think you'll need to resort to this plan. 

    Wishing you a delicious meal and a magical evening at Epcot!


    PS.  Please enjoy some pretzel bread for me at Le Cellier!
