    Candlelight Processional on December 20th. 1. My husband and I already have a 1 pm dining reservation for Biergarten. Do you think we can transfer it to be part of the package? Can we watch the 5 pm show and still make it to Paradiso 37 for a 6:50 res?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer!

    We absolutely LOVE Candlelight Processional at Epcot! There is truly nothing quite like this holiday spectacular; you will leave this event with a song in your heart and a skip in your step, that's for sure!

    We also love Candlelight Dining Packages, but those reservations are so popular, they can be tough to obtain. Only a certain number of these packages are available for one particular date, so you will not be ble to transfer your current reservation to Candlelight Dining Package.

    However, I would keep your Biergarten Restaurant dining reservation, and keep trying to get a Candlelight Dining Package as the date approaches. When other guests change their touring or dining plans and cancel reservations they can no longer use, you may be at the right place/right time to pick up that newly available Candlelight Dining Package. Have faith and keep trying, Jennifer; it just may happen!

    The Candlelight Processional lasts about 40 minutes, so once guests leave America Gardens Theater, it may be close to 6 p.m. Add time to get to the park exit, and, if taking a Walt Disney World bus, you may not make a 6:50 reservation for Paradiso 37. (Allowing up to 1 1/2 hours for park transportation is a good rule of thumb.) Should you get to the park exit area a little later than you'd like, however, you may certainly catch a taxi from Epcot to Disney Springs; this may enable you keep both reservations without having to worry.

    Send more questions as you think of them, too; we love to help!
