    Best place to watch epcot fireworks and eat outside at the same time?

    Hi Brad,

    There are two great options for you to enjoy a meal and Illuminations at the same time. The first is the Rose and Crown in England. This table service restaraunt takes reservations ninety days in advance and features a menu of bangers and mash, fish and chips and shepherd's pie. There are a limited number of tables located outside on the patio that offer a perfect view of Illuminations. Reservations for dinner near Illuminations are very popular and there is no guarantee that you will be able to obtain an outdoor table.

    Another option is Cantina de San Angel located in Mexico. This is a counter service location which offers walk up choices of tortillas, tacos, nachos and margaritas. There are a number of tables located along the water, perfect for Illuminations. These tables are first come and fill up quite early in the evening. There are also numerous outdoor tables at the Liberty Inn. These tables are outside and the fireworks from Illuminations would be visible for most tables, however they are quite a ways back from the water and behind the band shell, so the water portion of the show would not be visible from here.

    If you want to guarantee that you will be able to see Illuminations, a better choice would be to eat earlier in the evening and find your perfect spot for the show approximately forty five minutes before it begins. You can always grab a dessert from one of the carts along the World Showcase and enjoy that while waiting for the show to begin.
