    Reservations at teppan edo at 730 pm any chance we will be done in time to see illuminations...If so where would be the best place, or could we see them right outside the restaurant?

    Hello Brandon!  You will be eating at one of my favorite EPCOT World Showcase restaurants!

    It is hard to judge how long it will take for you to dine since you might not even be seated until 7:45 or so.  Teppan Edo can generally run slow with the service since it is basically a show preparing your meal.  If Illuminations is at 9:00pm this will be close for you to be able to leave and find a spot to watch.  You didn't mention a date so if your reservation is for after Thanksgiving then Illuminations will be at 9:30pm giving you a much better chance to dine leisurely and see it.

    You can find many great spots around the lagoon to watch.  You might be luck and find something perfect just outside the Japan pavilion.  Some of the trees have blocked what was once previously great spots but there are still many places to see the show.

    I suggest you show up early for your reservation and see if they can place you at a table early.
