    Going to Epcot 2/5/13 and planning on eating at Chef Mickey's for dinner. What time should I make reservations for dinner to be back at Epcot for the light show? Thank you!!

    Hi, Kim! You need to allow 45 minutes of travel time minimum if you are using Disney transportation, and you will want an hour and a half to eat and meet and greet the characters.  So, I suggest making your reservation around 6:00.  Earlier would be better than later if you can't get 6:00.  You would finish dining and be ready to go by 7:30.  You would be back at Epcot by 8:15 in time to get to the World Showcase and secure a spot to see IllumiNations at 9:00.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
