    We will be staying at Contemporary Resort in March/April. Dining reservation for Le Cellier Steakhouse for 8:25 p.m. Will we be able to see the Illuminations Fireworks from that location? Will we be able to catch the monorail back to hotel-park closes at9.

    Hello, Kara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your question regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    First of all, you are going to LOVE eating at Le Cellier Steakhouse! The steaks are AH-mazing!! I want to let you know that you would not be able to view IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth from inside the restaurant. Typically, it will take you approximately 90 minutes to truly enjoy the dining experience at Le Cellier. If there are guests who really want to view the fireworks, you could ask your server if it would be OK for some to leave and watch IllumiNations. The issue would be splitting up your family and the hurried feel for some in your group to go out to watch and then come back. My recommendation would be to come back to Epcot to view IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth if that would fit in your schedule.

    The MAGICAL news is that you will not have any issues catching the Monorail back to Disney's Contemporary Resort. The monorail will run an hour after Epcot closes. 

    If you have other questions, please let us know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
