    Hi Beth, we have a reservation at Le Cellier Steakhouse at 8 PM and we want to catch IllumiNations:Reflections of Earth, which is at 9. Do you think we can make that? We will be there Aug 14-19. Would we be able to see the fireworks from the restaurant?

    Hi Jamie,

    Thank you for the question! We love giving personal advice to guests in order to provide even extra pixie dust to you!

    Le Cellier Steakhouse is one of the most popular restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resorts. Because le cellier is French for pantry, the restaurant is located under the Canadian pavilion similar to how some homes' pantries are in the basement of a home. This makes it impossible to see IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

    While you can check into a restaurant up to 30 minutes early, the chances of being seated prior to 8:00 pm at this restaurant is slim. You might even be seated later. The chances of making IllumiNations is going to be tight but I would pass on the show and stick with your dining reservation. You could always try going earlier to dinner with the hopes of doing both.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
