    How can I make a reservation at Rose & Crown for 8p.m. and request a table on the patio so we can eat and watch Illuminations? It looks like I won’t be able to specify where we can sit.

    Hey, Kathy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question! 

    There is a new way to actually book a table in a reserved section of the patio overlooking World Showcase Lagoon. It's a practically perfect way to enjoy IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth! The IllumiNations Dining Package at Rose & Crown Dining Room offers guests a delicious meal served on the lower patio shortly before the evening's spectacular begins. This meal includes your choice of appetizer, entree, unlimited alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverages, and dessert from a designated menu. The menu items are subject to change, but do include many of the most popular items from Rose & Crown Dining Room's regular menu. You may book the package up to 180 days in advance, but I do recommend you book as soon as possible as availability is very limited.

    If you prefer to dine without the package, I recommend you try to get a dining reservation for 7:30 - 8:00 p.m. and ask the hostess for patio seating. Please understand that this does not guarantee you will be able to get a patio table. The closer to 7:30 p.m., the better your chance of scoring a table on the patio. Since the lower patio tables are used for the package, this does limit the number of tables for regular guests. So, if you would like to guarantee a spot outside, I do highly recommend the IllumiNations Dining Package!

    I hope this helps you plan a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious evening in Epcot! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures.
