    Is the candle light processional show open to all guests or just the dinner package people? and is the dinner package worth 2 table services per person?

    Hi, Dana!  The Candlelight Processional is included with the price of admission to EPCOT, so anyone is welcome to attend, even if you don't have the dinner package.  The big advantage guests with the package have is that they are guaranteed seating inside the theater.  Especially if you go on a night that is very busy because it is closer to the holidays or the narrator is very popular (like Neil Patrick Harris), the crowd trying to get into the theater can be quite large, and the standby line can begin forming as much as an hour in advance of the show.  With the dinner package, you can line up later in the dinner package line, and that line will be seated before they open up the standby line, so you know you have a seat without waiting as long.

    I think whether or not it is worth two dining credits is really a very personal thing.  I think if I was making the decision for my family, I'd be tempted to book the package and pay out of pocket, saving the dining plan credits for other meals.  My family absolutely loves this show, and it's a must do for us every year, but I'm not sure I'd want to use two credits.

    I hope this helps you to make your decision!  Have a wonderful upcoming visit!
