    Hi Andi! Can't thank you enough for all your help! Another Epcot?-we have Candlelight Proc dining lunch ADR 12/1. But have heard that it's better to see the show after dark. Is there really enough of a diff b/t the 5 & 6:45 to merit changing our ADR?

    Hi, again Sabrina! Oh, you are so very welcome for the help! The only drawback about the exchange between panelists and guests is that we don't usually get to find out how much our information and answers help guests. It's so nice to get your feedback. Thank you!

    I have attended the Candlelight Processional several times at various times of the late afternoon/evening, and to be honest, I have not thought about the time of day effecting my experience. Thinking back on it, I did get better photos of the earlier performances than I did from the late performances, and my favorite "side" is the one with the sign language interpreter. If she's the same person used throughout the years whom I've seen, she certainly enhances the entertainment. Gives me goosebumps just thinking about it! (She's always been house right/stage left for the performances I've seen.)

    So, I would opt for a better dining experience and time based on your plans for the day as opposed to worrying about the time of day of the Candlelight Processional performance. By the time the candles are lit toward the end of the performance, it is dark enough to appreciate the glow from the stage no matter which show you attend.

    Thanks, again for your kind words, and I certainly hope you have a beautiful day and a joy-filled, blessed and magical vacation!
