Question Dining during Extra Magic Hours

A Disney Dining worker booked a Via Napoli reservation at Epcot for me and my soon-to-be-fiance at 9:15PM. The park is open from 9a-9p, but open for Extra Magic until 11p. I don't have extra magic hours. I have talked to 4 different people on the phone and at Via Napoli since then, and half of them say I won't have a problem if I just go to the restaurant at my reserved time and half of them have told me I can't have that reservation (even thought an employee booked it for me and said nothing about it).

BUT, it has been booked and there are no other times available. Do the restaurants check to see if you have Extra Magic Hours and if so how? I will already be in the park early in the day, so I plan to just walk to the restaurant around 9 when Illuminations is happening. I have a reservation so there is a table reserved for us, and I really hope they don't deny me my seating/reservation when I get there because I don't have the Extra Magic Hours.

Anybody ever dealt with something like this? It's a huge night for me... Thanks!

I've never personally dealt with it, but from everything I've heard and read you don't need EMH to eat, just go on rides.

1- I have talked to 4 different people on the phone...

2- Do the restaurants check to see if you have Extra Magic Hours…
1- The "phone CMs" have no real knowledge of park operations.
(But, that doesn't stop them from making it up. No, I'm not kidding.)

2- Nope. You can enjoy your PM EMH meal, even if you are staying off-site.
Just make sure that you are already INSIDE Epcot before 9PM.

Thanks for the quick reply. Do they hand out special bands or something for Extra Magic people? We won't be meandering around during EMH, just presumably going to Italy to see the fireworks, then walking into the restaurant...Thanks!
