    If we have a 7:40 ADR at Tokyo do we go about viewing Illuminations?

    Hi Connie!  Illuminations is shown nightly at 9:00pm in EPCOT except during the Christmas holiday months when it is shown at 9:30pm.  Viewing of this great show is on a first come basis anywhere around the waters of the World Showcase.  The important thing to remember is to find a spot that does not have trees blocking your views and to also be considerate of what direction the wind is blowing.  You will not want to find yourself in the clouds of the fireworks missing some of the beautiful show.

    Your timing will be tight with a dining reservation at 7:40pm.  I suggest you arrive and check in early so you can hopefully be seated as soon as possible.  Let the wait person know you wish to view Illuminations. Sometimes you can find a spot right outside the restaurant on the balcony and if not you can head down to find something with as much view as possible!  Although much of the show is at water level you can see when standing behind other guests so don't be upset if you don't find anything directly waterside!
