    Hi Doug - you seem like the intinerary-guru! Can you help? Arrive in FL at 5pm on 9/26. Thinking of making ressies at either Le Cellier or Coral Reef and watching IllumiNations - what time should I try to schedule dinner?


    You flatter me - thanks!

    Unfortunately the schedule on the Walt Disney World website doesn't have the IllumiNations showtime posted for the 26th of September. That makes it a bit harder to plan, but it is safe to guess that with a 9pm park closing, it will be at 9.

    So you probably want to have your Advanced Dining Reservation scheduled as late as possible to have dinner and still make the show. That way if your travel plans are slowed you are still going to stay on schedule. I would suggest 7:45 to 8:00 pm. 

    Also, make sure you have utilized the advanced on-line check in so that your time to register is reduced, speeding you along to your dinner plans.
    FYI, I prefer Le Cellier, but both are good.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
