    We have reservations at Rose and Crown at 7:45. What suggest do you have to get a patio seat? We would like to watch illuminations at 9.

    Greetings and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Karen, how excited you must be to be visiting during our Autumn festivities!

    Dining at the Rose & Crown Dining Room themed after a British pub will delight you, not to mention the entertaining music from the resident musician as you enjoy all the traditional pub-style fare.

    Karen, your dining time is perfectly in pace with our IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth nighttime spectacular which you can view right from the waterfront. I recommend you arrive earlier than your Advanced Dining Reservation time and when at the check-in podium speak to a Cast Member about seating at an outdoor patio table. Although not guaranteed, every effort will be made to accommodate your request and I also remember having to wait a little longer, but it was so worth it. Have a tissue handy, because this celebration of the spirit of humanity brings about a poignancy like no other under the wonderful narration by Jim Cummings – the familiar voice of our Disney Characters such as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.

    Elevate your experience during this nighttime spectacular with a variety of glow-in-the-dark Made with Magic accessories which you can wear and wave about.

    We hope this information is helpful, Karen and wish you every success in securing a patio table to enjoy your viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth!

    Best Disney Wishes!
