    I would just order 3 drinks at a time in order to make sure I got my money's worth. Maybe that's just me being a little too obsessed with squeezing every penny out of my dollars, though.

    As I previously stated; I already came to that conclusion myself. You may have missed it:

    Here's the thing - we have NEVER had an issue getting a great viewing spot for Illuminations - and we always arrive about 5 minutes before it starts. While I LOVE R and C, there is NO WAY I would pay that much for the same view I can get elsewhere for "free". I will grab a good beer in Germany and find a spot.. it has not failed me yet!

    Agree for the most part! The only reason I want to do this is for the 4th of July. I hate having to stake out a decent spot 2-3 hours ahead of time. Last year was the worst and I just don't want to repeat that again! Any other normal night though I wouldn't pay for that.

    I would wait and see, i'm losing track of where I am reading what but it seems like it is a special event off to the side and not instead of the regular patio tables. Wait for reports before giving up your ADR.

    Are these dining packages available to book when the ADR's become available or is it a separate booking window?

    I’m excited for this package mainly. The only down fall for me is that my youngest daughter is 10. I hate to spend full price for her.

    Our first night tradition for the last 20 years has been Rose & Crown dinner with Illuminations. My husband will occasionally have a beer. I cannot drink. This price is a significant increase for us.
    We normally get seated indoors and are ushered out to stand on the patio and then come back inside for dessert. I have to re-evaluate whether we want to change our adr for April 30. We’ve seen illumination so many times, it probably can easily be missed. This would have been our farewell show.

    Yup! The price includes tax and tip, so the actual meal cost is $68.28. Scotch Egg, Bangers & Mash, and dessert estimated price $38. Three beers will bring you to, well, $65. Cheese Plate, Corned Beef, and dessert comes to $45. Three beers, or two "fancy" drinks, brings you to/over the $68

    Still remains to be seen from what I can tell. We know it opens on the 17th but we don't know for how long. I'm going to be on that morning to try and book July 4th but Im not keeping up my hopes that they will have a full 180+ open.

    Well, I still can't book it for my date in April and I already have had normal R&C ressies that night at 7:50 since the end of October....

    The announcement noted that the booking window would open on January 17th (even though first available date will then be January 18th).

    Yeah, I know, I was just answering the pp's question. For some it will be, for those like me, it of course wasn't.

    Hahaha! I didn't even realize that was you again! Hopefully availability for this will be better than the dessert party!
