    Sharon from IL Asked

    We will be in WDW the first week of Feb. We have ADR for Chef Mickey on 2/3 at 6:40 pm. Will we have enough time to finish our meal and take the monorail to Epcot for Illuminations? I believe this is at 9 pm.

    Hello Sharon!

    As long as there isn't a backup at Chef Mickey's (CM), I think you'll have time to eat and arrive at Epcot in time for Illuminations.  It will be tight, but doable.

    If I were you, I'd check in at the CM podium 10-15 minutes prior to your Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR).  With any luck, you may even be seated a few minutes early.  Because CM is a buffet meal, you'll be able to start your meal almost immediately once you are seated.  You'll need to allow up to one hour to allow the characters to rotate through the tables (depending on where they are in their rotation when you arrive). 

    I would say as long as you leave Chef Mickey's by 8:15, you should be fine.  From Chef Mickey's you'll need to hop on the monorail, exit at the Transportation & Ticket Center (first stop) and transfer to the Epcot monorail.

    Good luck!  Diane
