    Joanne- Thanks for getting back to me. My cut off ? was how does the reserved seating for Illuminations work & what time should I show up? Also, I am using my dining plan for CDP @ Epcot Do I still get an appetizer though it is not included in my pack

    Hi again Keith! Thanks for writing back with the rest of your question! Note that the reserved viewing for Illuminations does not usually offer seating. It's a roped off area, and is typically located where you enter World Showcase between Mexico and Canada. There is no need to line up early, but get there ahead of time to ensure a good view. I would recommend at least 30 minutes before the start. I love this location as you're right in the middle of the action!

    I'm thinking by CDP, you're referring to Chefs de France. Please write back if I'm mistaken! I love dining there on the Disney Dining Plan, as they typically offer a choice of ordering off the regular menu, which would include a main course, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage, or from a special Prix Fixe menu. If you choose the Prix Fixe, you have the choice of appetizer, main course, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage from a select menu. It's a great deal, and I highly recommend the French onion soup appetizer and creme brulee dessert! Sooo good!

    Hope this helps Keith! Write back with any other questions!
