    Where should 4 adults eat to see Illuminations?

    Hi Martha, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a great question!

    My favourite place to eat dinner while watching IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is, without a doubt, Rose & Crown Dining Room. Not only do they serve comfort food at its finest, but they also have a great selection of beer on tap (if you care to indulge) AND, most importantly, they have the best patio in World Showcase! If you time your dining reservation right and book a table between 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., make sure to request a table outside. If they can accommodate your request, you should be able to get a perfect view of the show. 

    Another great option for a “table with a view” is Spice Road Table. It too has great food (I actually prefer it in some ways to Rose & Crown), but not every table has a perfect view of the show. 

    Finally, if you’d want to watch the show in air conditioned comfort, you can also book a table at La Hacienda de San Angel for dinner. The only reason why I’d put it in last place is because I don’t find that you can fully appreciate IllumiNations when watching it through a window. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming vacation. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
