    Hi Disney Moms, Thanks for all of your great advice. DH and I have an ADR at LeCellier at 7:30 pm, we hope to be out in time to watch Illuminations at 9. Do you think we should plan to walk to HS for the 10:30 Fantasmic or is that too much to plan? :)

    Hey Margaret!

    While your plan will be cutting things a little tight, it sounds like a commando plan my daughter and I would love to attempt. (We have successfully completed the Illuminations: Reflections of Earth/Wishes double!)

    Here are my suggestions to make this plan a success:
    1. Get a FastPass+ selection for Fantasmic!. This will give you a guaranteed seat for the show even if you show up less than 30 minutes prior to the show.
    2. Arrive at your LeCellier Advanced Dining Reservation early in hopes that you might get seated early.
    3. Tell your server that you would like to get out in time to view Illuminations. Preferably 30 or more minutes before the show.
    4. After dinner make your way to the bridge between the United Kingdom Pavilion and France near the International Gateway entrance to Epcot. This is a great location to view Illumination. However, I suggest getting there as quickly as possible after your meal because it fills up quickly.
    5. Exiting through the International Gateway entrance, either walk or take one of the launches to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Good luck with this plan. If you have any more questions about your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
