    you answered Candlelight Processional ticket release date, thank you. I tried what you suggst. making a reserv. at one of the places for the nights and changed to the proc. pkg.later, even tho I can book ADR/s 180 out Coral Reef nor LeCellier released yet?

    Hi Linda! Sorry for the delay as I was out for the weekend without a computer.  I am feeling your frustration with the dining reservations.  I too am heading to Walt Disney World this holiday season and have to get reservations in line.  It is hard to wait on the Candlelight Packages to open up and still plan your trip.  I do still suggest you make an alternative reservation at an Epcot restaurant and then cancel when you get a package reservation.

    The frustration starts when Disney decides to pick and choose which restaurants will open up for reservations at the 180 day mark.  I have been trying to get some for our late October/November vacation and still can't so I am in your boat completely! Dinner shows and special events have been known not to open up at 180 days and it is simply a "keep checking back" type of situation with those. I too tried to get Le Cellier and Coral Reef spots and for unknown reasons they will not allow them. It obviously means they have not made decisions on hours/packages/refurbishments/etc. and until they do they will not open time spots for guests.

    You can grab something at one of the other locations such as Teppan Edo in Japan for that evening. And although I hate to say it you can "keep checking back" on the Disney site or by calling the dining number, 407-939-3463.
