    We are coming in December and plan to dine in Epcot on the 10th. We are tying to decide between Rose and Crown and Via Napoli-we would like to see Illuminations-will we be able to see them if we choose Via Naopli from a seat outside? Thanks, panel- URG8

    Hi Jennifer! I think Via Napoli and the Rose & Crown might be my two favorite restaurants in Epcot, so you're deciding between two great places! Both restaurants have delicious food, but if you want to watch Illuminations while you're eating, choose Rose & Crown, where the patio tables have a nice view of the fireworks. Via Napoli is located in the back of the Italy pavilion, farther away from the World Showcase Lagoon, and I don't think you could see much, if anything, of Illuminations from the tables there. 

    During your December trip, you will, however, have another option for dining while viewing Illuminations: La Hacienda de San Angel.  The tables in this new Mexican restaurant are expected to have a great view of the World Showcase Lagoon. You'll be able to make reservations in mid-September; click here to view a recent Disney Parks Blog post with lots of details on this new dining option.

    Hope you have a magical vacation this December!
