R&C Illuminations ADR time

I'm trying to decide between two ADR times for Rose & Crown. We are hoping to watch Illuminations from either a patio table or the reserved viewing area. I understand patio tables can't be requested nor can you wait for one.

But...I'm wondering which time would give me a better chance at a patio table to watch the fireworks. 7:20PM or 7:45PM.

We plan on having apps + entrees + dessert and possibly drinks. If anyone has experience with doing this, I'd love to hear. Thanks!

Is Illuminations at 9, 10 or 9:30?

I'd pick the earliest if you want a shot at the patio. And it doesn't hurt to ask - most of the time they won't let you request but they still allow it sometimes apparently.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about getting a patio table because there really aren't that many with an excellent view. So I would go with whichever time works better for you. R&C, once seated, tends to be a pretty quick meal (i.e., probably about 75 minutes for a three course meal). So if you take the 7:20 pm ADR, you'll probably have to drag out the meal a little to make it to 9:00 pm (assuming you're seated on time). The 7:45 pm, is probably better in terms of meal timing, but I would guess that's on the late side for a prime patio table.

When are you going? I have found that the 7:45 should get you to dessert by 9pm and they will hold dessert until after the show. But we go when it really is not that crowded.

Last time we did this, our ADR was for 7:35 and we weren't seated until 8:15. This was in September which is slow, but R&C is very busy at this time every night. When we were seated, we were seated on the upper patio which as an obstructed view of Illuminations. We were just finishing our dessert as 9pm Illuminations came on. As PP said, not a ton of great views from the patio so don't stress about it.
