Disney has just announced that they are testing a new offering for dining at Epcot. From March 28 - April 10 you can now book dining reservations at Coral Reef, Garden Grill, and LeCellier from 9pm - 10pm each evening. Prior to this program the last reservation available at these locations was 9pm.
Here’s the text from Disney:
[I]Do you like the idea of an extra hour for dining in the evening at Epcot? Give it a try from March 28 through April 10, and let us know what you think — you can book your “extra hour” table at Coral Reef Restaurant, Garden Grill or Le Cellier Steakhouse. Then get ready to relax and sip a post-prandial cocktail or linger over dessert while the Epcot crowds dwindle. [/I]
I quite like this idea. Anything that increases capacity for dining, especially at these restaurants, is welcome. Plus, the thought of relaxing at a fine restaurant rather than participating in the nightly “Epcot Death March” toward the exits after the conclusion of Illuminations is very appealing.
