    booked the Candlelight Processional package for lunch at Biergarten at noon on 12/24. said we will attend the 8:15 show. Will we have time for 5:30 dinner res at Chefs de France? What time should we be in line for the CP (being we reserved pkg)? thanks

    Guten Abend, Christine! It's time to brush off your dirndl and lederhosen for a wonderful evening full of family fun as you celebrate the season. I am so happy you were able to secure an Advance Dining Reservation at Biergarten with the Candlelight Processional dining package. The processional is an experience not to be missed, especially on a joyous Christmas Eve. I think you have an unforgettable holiday planned!

    You should have enough time to fit in a meal that evening at Chefs de France if you wish. However, you may be quite stuffed from your lunch to properly enjoy your dinner. Do you have another evening where you will be visiting Epcot and can instead enjoy a meal at Chefs de France that evening? You could also consider adding the Park Hopper option to your Magic Your Way ticket and head to Epcot one evening. This could work well on a day you visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, as you would only need to use the provided boat transportation from that park to Epcot, and Chefs de France is a very short walk in from the International Gateway entrance. If you do decide to keep your dinner reservation, keep watch on the time, as you will want to arrive at the American Gardens Theater entrance designated for those holding a dining package ticket no later than 30-45 minutes before the show begins. Please note that Cast Members will open the reserved seating area to all Guests 15 minutes before the show.

    So, Christine, we need to brush up on your German before your evening at Biergarten. All together, let's practice this with a good count off ... eins, zwei, drei! Zicke zacke, zicke zacke, hoi hoi hoi!

    Prost to you and yours, Christine!
