    Guests visiting World Showcase in Epcot will soon be able to relax after watching IllumiNations.

    Instead of leaving the park, Guests will be able to make a reservation for Epcot After Hours Wind Down.

    From the 17th April through to the 15th September, Guests will be able to head to one of four spots in World Showcase for end-of-day relaxation with appetizers and beverages.

    You can choose one of the following:
    • La Cava del Tequila at the Mexico Pavilion
    • Spice Road Table in the Morocco Pavilion
    • Tutto Gusto in the Italy Pavilion
    • Rose & Crown Pub in the United Kingdom Pavilion
    Each location will have small bites paired with a beverage flight (additional beverages can be purchased) from 9:20pm until 11pm.

    Cost is $35, plus tax and gratuity.

    To make a reservation, go to www.disneyworld.com/spring, call 407-WDW-DINE, or check in with Epcot Guest Relations to see if space is available.

    If it makes money I'm sure they will. But then the price will probably keep going up. Sounds like a great idea, but we are rarely in EPCOT till closing time unless something special is happening.

    We are always in Epcot till closing because of illuminations, would love to try this. Hopefully the crowds will dissipate a bit too

    I HAVENT .... really hard.... on the day we get there, we're doing EPCOT but we have le cellier at 8:50pm so we can kinda go in, get the table, come out and watch fireworks then go back in LOL we won't finish till about 10:30 I guess

    The next time we're there we have an illuminations dessert party

    So I'm struggling to find a time to really do it :/

    Keith, is that going to work? The Le Cellier plan, I mean? :unsure: Are you going to end up with a good meal, or be rushed off your feet so they can close? Not trying to give you agida, but just wondering if you've ever done this before? Stayed after Illuminations to dine, I mean.

    Yeah we ve often nabbed the last time which is 850 or 9 and usually get seated right on that time too not any earlier.

    I've not noticed being rushed but then we only take an hour or so really anyway.

    We don't normally go out and watch the fireworks but they usually do offer to keep the food hot until we return if we wanted to

    Sooooooo I'm pretty hopeful but I'll let you know if it does, or doesn't, play out !

    I've not ever been rushed out of a restaurant or park. It's absolutely lovely to walk out and enjoy the view with it practically empty

    It's too bad Disney has never had a place for adults to go after the parks close where you could get food and drinks and be able to watch fireworks among other entertainment.......oh, wait.....:rolleyes3:
