Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I have ressies for an Illuminations cruise and want to make epcot dining ressies before that in the fall. Will they let me park at the Yacht Club that early so I can head to dining before the cruise? I heard they are tough during food and wine festival

Welcome back to the Moms Panel! It sounds like you have a lovely and magical evening planned!! If you have an Illuminations cruise reserved then you can park in the parking lot at Yacht Club. I wouldn't advise arriving early in the morning, but you should be okay a few hours before the cruise.
I was in a similar situation on a previous trip. We had reservations for Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage at the Contemporary Resort. We arrived at least two hours earlier because we had dining reservations in the Magic Kingdom. I explained to the Security Guard and provided my email confirmation for the voyage. He waved us in and said to have a great voyage.
I hope this helps!
