    Hi, We will be in Epcot on Thanksgiving Day. Do you have any suggestions for us? Will it be decorated for Christmas yet or does that happen the next day? We would like to see Illuminations. Is there a place you can dine and see Illuminations? Thank

    Hey Kristine!

    The Holidays are an extra *MAGICAL* time of year to visit Walt Disney World. The theme parks and resorts will definitely be decked out in their holiday finest. Make sure to take some time to visit the resorts especially those in the Magic Kingdom area. Some of their displays are breathtaking.

    My favorite place to watch Illuminations: Reflections of Earth is the Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room. This restaurant sits on the shore of the World Showcase Lagoon and has a front row seat to the show, not to mention the amazing menu of tasty items such as their fish & chip and one of my favorites, the Bangers & Mash. Yum! While a seat on the verandah is not guaranteed, when you arrive for your Advanced Dining Reservation you can ask for a seat with a view. Even if they are unable to accommodate this request they have a private area for their guests to stand to watch the show. Either way you will have a fabulous view.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions about the holiday happenings or any other aspect of your Walt Disney World vacation please let me know.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
