    Can you see Illuminations at Epcot from the Cape May Cafe? The reservation site suggests that you can see Epcot Fireworks, is this true? If so would you recommend this over the Rose & Crown Pub? We'd like a nice meal and a viewing of Illuminations.

    Hi Susan!  I took a quick peek at the Cape May Cafe page on Disney's website and I didn't see any reference to a fireworks view.  Regardless of where you saw the information, though, let me clarify.  IllumiNations is not visible from the Cape May Cafe.  The restaurant is located within Disney's Beach Club.  To get a prime view of IllumiNations from outside of Epcot, you'd need to be in a room facing the right direction or at the bridge near the International Gateway.  Rose and Crown, on the other hand, offers a phenomenal view (as long as you get the right seats!). Another great option would be La Hacienda de San Angel.  I hope that clears things up for you!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
