Dinner, Illuminations, Kids Club -- timing question?

Hi!
I'm planning a date night of sorts for me and my husband while we are at Disney.

We will be at the Beach Club for our last night, and I've signed my daughter up for Sandcastle kids club for 6-10.

I have an ADR for Chefs de France for 7:20.

Question 1:
Will we finish dinner in time for Illuminations?

Question 2: How long does Illuminations take? Do I need to extend my Sandcastle reservation to 11? We will be able to walk back to the Beach Club, so I don't need to concern myself with Disney transport... But still not sure.

Any tips are appreciated!

1: Yes
2: About 15 minutes or so. You will make it back by 10.

Woot, awesome! I'm so excited about this. And the Kids Club is a really good deal! (At least with only one kid - doesn't cost anymore than I pay my babysitter!)

Thank you!

It depends on how fast you eat and if Les Chefs is running on time. The average in-park TS meal takes about 75 minutes. Three course meals take longer (say 90 minutes). So while I think you'll probably be done by 9:00 pm, you won't have a lot of time.

IllumiNations is approximately 13-minutes long (longer when it has a special finale). If you position yourself to watch from the France/UK side of the lagoon, you'll be poised to make a quick exit from Epcot via IG. From there its probably about 10-15 minutes to the BC (depending on how fast you walk). So you should be back without much trouble. (I wouldn't wait for the boat, that will probably be full and it'll take longer.)
