  • Hi Tammy,

    I think you actually have secured just about the perfect time slot for your dinner at Coral Reef!  I'd recommend arriving at the podium to check in for your reservation about 15 minutes early to ensure that you are seated as close as possible to your scheduled time.  I usually allow a little over an hour for dinner at table service restaurants once seated.  Your time allows you some extra time for dessert, a cocktail, etc.  You'll be able to finish up and then find a spot around the lagoon to watch Illuminations.

    My kids love watching the sea life at Coral Reef.  The Cast Member who seats you will provide you with "Fish Guides"  that will enable you to identify what you are looking at.  My kids love to have a race to check off who sees all the different fish first!

    Enjoy your dinner and Illuminations!
