    I booked out Candlelight Processional dining package today, and I was wondering if the gratuity is included in the amount I had to prepay? This is my first time doing a prepay for a dining package, and I was not sure what was included.

    Hi Malorie,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for joining us with your question.

    I spoke with one of the incredibly friendly Cast Members at Disney Dining and was told that your prepaid reservation for the Candlelight Processional Dining Package included tax, but gratuity was NOT included in your reservation.  Having waited tables many years ago, I'm sure your server will appreciate you asking and tipping accordingly.

    The Candlelight Processional, presented at the American Adventure Pavilion in Epcot Theme Park, is so near and dear to my heart; I was able to sing in the massed choir when I was in high school many years ago.  I now share this fantastic tradition with my children, who love it as well.

    Malorie, please enjoy every moment of the Candlelight Processional! Come back and see us with any additional questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
