    Dining w/ princesses @ Epcot 2/18 we want to take a midday break w/ our DDs 2&5 and return for Illum I am worried about finding a spot to watch the show and then I am concerned about trans back to the WL w/ the crowds. Would fantasmic at HS be better 4

    Hi Kaylene!

    Congrats on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! You are going to love dining with the princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot. You are wise to take a midday break with your two little ones so that they will be refreshed to watch Illuminations that night. If you want to get a good spot for watching Illuminations, ensure that you will be at Epcot at least two hours prior to the Illuminations show. This will allow you to get a great spot. I suggest grabbing dinner at a quick service location and eating while sitting in your desired spot.

    Don't worry about transportation back to Wilderness Lodge, as there are plenty of buses that run from Epcot to the resort after the show. The buses come quickly and they will send several to accommodate the crowds.

    Illuminations will be less crowded than Fantasmic! Fantasmic! is a very popular fireworks show, so you will have to arrive very early to get a spot. Both shows are great and you should try to see both while you are there.

    Magically,
    Stacy
