    We have an ADR at Teppan Edo on Sept 16, at 9:55. Illuminations is at 9:00. Should we go earlier to the restaurant and watch the fires near there or should we watch the fires from any other better place and then go to the restaurant?

    Hi Antonieta!

         Wow, it sounds like you have a great plan for a wonderful evening!  One of the best places to watch Illuminations: Reflections of Earth that I have found is right outside of Teppan Edo! The balcony (porch) that runs around the Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining Building is a prime position to watch Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. Take a right at the top of the stairs before you enter the Teppan Edo door and then try to be as close to the right corner for the best possible view of Illuminations. It is a good idea to get there at least 30-45 minutes before Illuminations starts to secure the best possible view.  Illuminations: Reflections of Earth should be complete by 9:20 pm so you have plenty of time to get to your Advanced Dining Reservations at Teppan Edo if you choose to watch Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at another location around World Showcase Lagoon.

    I hope you have a magical viewing of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth and a wonderful Teppan Edo dinner on your next trip to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
