    I know I've been asking alot, but I'm a big planner, sorry! Is there a restaurant not necessarily in Epcot, but close, to watch Illuminations? We are going to the park twice, and will see it 1st day, but maybe during dinner, we could catch a glimpse?

    There aren't any restaurants outside Epcot where you could see Illuminations while you're actually in the restaurant. There are, however, several places where you could see some of Illuminations from right outside the restaurant. Just steps outside almost any of the eating places in the Boardwalk or Yacht/Beach Club area, you could walk onto the nearby beach and see some of the fireworks. These restaurants include Spoodles, Flying Fish, ESPN Zone, Cape May Cafe, Big River Grille, and several others. I would time your meal so that you're finishing up at about 8:45, since Illuminations almost always starts at 9:00. You could take a nice walk on the beach area, or sit on a bench while you soak up the atmosphere of the lights in the sky.
