    Hello. Can you see Illuminations from La Hacienda? Is that a good plan? What time do we make our reservation to have the best chance of the best view? Thanks so much for your help!

    Hi there, Mary!

    La Hacienda de San Angel is a great restaurant offering fabulous on the water views of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.  The fireworks normally begin at 9pm so many folks making a reservation from 7:30 pm on, will be requesting a window seat.  Unfortunately, you can't be guaranteed a window seat and you do take a bit of a chance.  I suggest making a reservation for 7:30-ish.  Check-in a little before your time, and ask to be seated at the window.  You may have to wait a bit, but the Cast Members will do their best to accommodate you.  

    I hope this helps, Mary.  I wish you a truly magical vacation!
