    Hello! We have an Akershus ADR at 7:55pm, IllumiNations is at 9pm. I'm wondering if it will be possible to find a viewing spot after dinner, and if you could suggest where we might have the best luck given that crowds will have already gathered. Thanks!

    Hello Emily and thanks for asking the Disney Parks Moms Panel such a great question.
    I'm thrilled to know you have secured a 7.55pm Advanced Dining Reservation for the delightful Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot, it's one of my families firm favorites and I'm sure you'll love it too! 
    If you're anything like me I don't like rushing my meals therefore my first suggestion would be to arrive and check-in with a Cast Member at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at least 20 minutes before your reservation time. Hopefully this strategy may get your party seated on time giving you a whole hour to order and enjoy dinner without getting indigestion! 
    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth really is spectacular and you certainly won't want to miss it!  However don't worry too much because the fireworks, which are simply enormous do light up much of the night sky meaning most spots around World Showcase serve as great last minute viewing spots; for you I recommend anywhere (not under a tree!) between China and Germany's Pavilions. 
    If I can sprinkle any extra pixie dust onto your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort please pop back to ask me another question. 
    Have a great Disney day.
