    Hi again! We want to do DiveQuest from 4:30-7:30 and then have dinner at Garden Grill at 8PM. Will we have enough time to see IllumiNations after dinner or is it going to be cutting it too close? Thanks!

    Hi Ina!  You have a great itinerary planned for your day at Epcot.  DiveQuest will surely be a thrill for you and one of our favorite restaurants is the Garden Grill.  Although your meal will be served family style part of the fun at this dining location is that the characters will come to your table for photo ops and fun.  If you rush through your dinner to make the 9:00pm Illuminations then you likely will miss some of the character greetings. It isn't impossible to get outside to at least see some of the show but it would certainly be rushing the last part of your day.  I suggest you try to find another evening when maybe you can come back and stroll through the World Showcase looking at the wares and culinary delights of the various countries and then find a great spot to watch Illuminations.  Also consider reserving an Illuminations cruise if you don't want to use another park ticket for Epcot. You will get these pontoon type boats at the Yacht and Beach Club marina and they will take you to the waters to watch from some of the best seats in the park. Its a nice way to see without using a park ticket but be sure to make reservations as they go quickly!
