    Is there a dining package that includes illuminations seating?

    Hi Judith,

    Illuminations: Reflections of Earth is a spectacular way to end a magical day at Epcot! While there is not currently a dining package available that offers reserved viewing, I do have a few suggestions for you!

    First, did you know that you're able to use the FastPass+ service to watch it? There will be an area of reserved viewing spots at Showcase Plaza between the boat docks for anyone with a valid FastPass+ selection. Do note, however, that this is considered a top tier FastPass+ experience, meaning that if you choose it as one of your initial three selections, you won't be able to choose Test Track, Soarin' Around the World, or Frozen Ever After. However, if decide to wait and have already enjoyed your first three FastPass+ selections and notice FastPass+ availability for it through the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk, you may certainly grab it!

    Another option for you is to choose a dining location with excellent views of the World Showcase Lagoon. A bit of pixie dust may be required to make sure you time this correctly and are seated at a table with a view, but Guests have enjoyed fantastic IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth views from the back patio at Rose & Crown Dining Room or at La Hacienda de San Angel, both of which I'd highly recommend making dining reservations for as early as possible. There are also great views if you can grab a table at the Quick-service restaurant, La Cantina de San Angel.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Judith, and have a truly magical vacation!
