    When dinning at spice road for illuminations can you reserve out side seating. And if not can you watch from the outside even if you are dinning inside

    Hi Louis! In my opinion there is nothing more magical than being able to view IllumiNations:  Reflections of Earth from a seat along the World Showcase Lagoon!

    One of the things that I love about Spice Road Table is that there is both indoor and outdoor seating available with views. In order to be able to have an outside seat my advice would be to book an Advanced Dining Reservation between approximately 8:00pm and 8:30pm. I also request an IllumiNations view however, sometimes you may have to wait a bit longer to be seated (but I think it is worth it!) Additionally, I often go to the guest check-in podium earlier in the evening (say around 5:00pm) to have them note on my Advanced Dining Reservation that I am requesting an outdoor IllumiNations view. It is my understanding however that you may not watch from the outside if you are seated inside for the safety of all guests.

    I sure hope that you find this information helpful and I have my fingers crossed that you get that spectacular view that you are hoping for! Sending you some pixie dust!
