[QUOTE=chris24;1056103]so then here is my dilema…we are going the 12th to the 18th, and the only night we will be able to see ELP (no school like the old school…lol) is wed night, we have adr for le cellier @ 6:10, so a 7pm parade is out of the question…so do i:
a - blow off le cellier to see the elp (which my wife and kids have never seen, and i ahve not seen since i was a wee tot), or
b - go to le cellier?
i am leaning towards option a, as the ELP will not be around forever, and this is a chance for my kids to see something that they may not get to see again for a long time.
You’re between a rock and a hard place.
When exactly are you leaving on the 18th and can you schedule a later flight?
There is an ELP that night at 9.
If you can’t make that change and you really want to see the ELP (and keep in mind that I made a day trip this summer with only two goals, 1 Eo preview and 2 the ELP before it went back to sleep, and I watched the parade in some pretty bad rain and I’m not a parade person) then I would probably skip le Cellier.
As Rowdy posted and you’ve seen, most of the week you’re there, there are Christmas parties forcing MK to close at 7 while the other nights it closes at 8, leaving time for only one parade.
So, I think I’d either try for an early walk up at le Cellier (like 4-4:15) or make alternate plans to catch the parade, and maybe go back to Epcot and try to eat somewhere else. You could also try showing up at le Cellier after the parade and say your reservation was for 8:10, don’t even let on that you know it was really for 6:10 and hope they can seat you. Don’t forget Illuminations (Christmas edition) is at 9:30 and not 9.
Try for a 4 PM walk up at le Cellier or make a different dinner reservation so you can see the parade. One other thing, if you make a second dinner reservation for that night, just to be safe, make it in DW’s name and use her cell phone number as a contact number just in case a le Cellier CM looks at the reservation list and sees you’ve got a different reservation at 8:10.
