    Planning for 8/2015. Want to see Illuminations while having dinner (maybe time it right around our dessert). What are the best restaurant locations for this?

    Hi Ivy,

    What a great plan. I often try to book advance dining reservations to view IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth from our table. Spice Road Table and La Cantina de San Angel are two popular dining locations to view IllumiNations, but offered on a first come, first served basis. In August, you'll likely need to scout a spot 90 minutes in advance of the show at these two locations.

    My personal favorite spot to dine is Rose & Crown Pub in England. If IllumiNations happens to be at 9:00 p.m. that evening, try to book a reservation for around 7:45 p.m. Arrive at 7:30 p.m. and notify the Cast Member at the podium you are hoping for a patio table. In our experience, we've been granted the request with an awesome view of the show. Book this advance dining reservation at 180-days prior to your arrival either online or by calling (407) 939-3463. The 7:30 time slot is highly sought after.

    Let me know if you have any other questions, Ivy. I'm happy to help.
