    We heard that you could view the Illuminations show at Epcot from the outside seating at the Rose and Crown Pub. How does this work? What time should we make our dinner reservations and how do we request this seating? Thank you!

    Hi Christina!

    The Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room does indeed have a patio that is great for watching Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.  The only bad part is Disney can't promise you a fireworks viewing table in front.  In fact, they won't even guarantee you a patio seat.  You can request it at check-in and they will try to give you one if it is available.

    I suggest making an Advanced Dining Reservation for 1 hour before Illuminations.  As you can imagine, eating at the Rose and Crown is very popular and it may take a while before you will be seated.

    Good luck and have a magical vacation!
