    9 days to go! 1st night we have ADR at Garden Grill @ 7:10. Would we have enough time to watch Illuminations after dinner? Where would be a good spot to watch?Or the following eve we have ADR at Biergarten @ 6:55. Should we watch from there (Friday)instead

    Hi Rhonda.  From a timing perspective, either night should be fine to see Illuminations.    Assuming Illuminations starts at 9:00, you should be out of your dining well in advance.   I find that most dining experiences last about an hour. 

    While the Biergarten is directly located along the World Showcase where this nighttime attraction occurs, the Garden Grill is located within the Land and is only a 5 to 10 minute walk to the World Showcase.    As for good places to watch, there are quite a few places to watch even if you don't have time (or wish) to camp out in advance.   I personally enjoy watching from Canada or the bridge just outside of France.    Just make sure you can view into the middle of the lagoon and your view in not blocked by trees.   Since you are traveling during a relatively light period of time, these should offer fine viewing spots.    Worst case, just simply ask a Cast Member for suggestions.   They always know the best places to watch no matter where you are around the showcase.    Hope this helps!
