    Hello! I made a reservation for the Coral Reef Restaurant in Jan 2019. How can we get a table next to the reef aquarium for our kids? Thanks!!

    Hi Amy, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us about a truly unique Disney Dining experience: Coral Reef Restaurant at Epcot! We’ve had the chance to dine there several times and it’s quickly becoming one a family favourite. 

    When you check in for your dining reservation, make sure to specify your request for a “tank side” table to the Cast Member who will be assisting you. Please note that they will do their best to accommodate your request but they may not be able to do so due to your party’s size. In addition, you may have to wait a little bit longer for your table, so please tell the Cast Member that you’re willing to wait, if that’s the case. Thanks to a fair bit of patience and luck, I've had some pretty good luck with table placement over the years so make sure you have plenty of both when you arrive! 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
