    Planning to see Illuminations at Epcot... would like to do dinner before in Italy. What is a good time for dinner reservation to be able to then see Illuminations? Thanks

    IllumiNations is a wonderful show, Ellen.  I'm so glad you're incorporating it into your plans!  If I were doing the planning, I'd opt for dinner no later than 6:30.  If you plan on about an hour meal time, you should be out of the restaurant by 8:00 at the latest (assuming you had to wait a bit to be seated).  That leaves you plenty of time to choose a prime viewing spot around the lagoon and settle in for the show.  If you have room left in your belly you might consider picking up dessert from the patisserie in France.  Somehow, those French pastries make IllumiNations that much sweeter!  Enjoy.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
