    I finally snagged a dinner reservation at Coral Reef for 7:55. But will I be able to see Illuminations from there if it starts at 9:30?

    Hi Brandi!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! I absolutely love Coral Reef! Their food is incredible and the aquarium is absolutely amazing. The aquarium has panoramic windows in which you can view 4,000 + sea creatures! 

    If you like the new Finding Dory movie, you will especially like exploring Sea Base before dinner and enjoying the views of angelfish, dolphins, sharks and more in this aquarium!

    Unfortunately you will be unable to see Illuminations from Coral Reef. If you start dinner at 7:55 p.m. you may not be done in enough time to view the fireworks show. Typically Illuminations occurs at 9:00 p.m. If you want to consider a dining location in which you can have a view of Illuminations, consider booking Rose & Crown Dining Room. A table on the patio cannot be guaranteed, but if you can get a table on the patio, it offers a great view of Illuminations!

    I hope you have magical vacation!
