    Love the panel! We have reservations at Teppan Edo 7:10. Is there a good spot after dinner to watch Illuminations?

    Hi Matt!
        Teppan Edo is one of the most exciting dining experiences in Epcot's World Showcase.  Teppan Edo is one of the favorite restaurants for my son and I!  You are very fortunate because one of the best places to watch Illuminations is right outside of Teppan Edo! The balcony (porch) that runs around the Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining Building is a prime position to watch Illuminations. Take a right at the top of the stairs before you enter the Teppan Edo door and then try to be as close to the right corner for the best possible view of Illuminations.  It is a good idea to get here at least 20-30 minutes before Illuminations starts to secure the best possible view. Dinner at Teppan Edo takes an average of 2 hours, so you should get out of dinner with enough time to secure a prime viewing spot for Illuminations.  Another great place for viewing Illuminations is just to the right of the Japan Pavillion (if you are facing the World Showcase Lagoon) close to the water.

    I hope you have a magical viewing of Illuminations on your next trip to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
