    Will more Candlelight Processional dining packages be added? I tried since before 6am on the release day and only got error messages until no availability messages. Super disappointed as I'm going with a senior and guaranteed seating is less stressful.

    Hi Brittany,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    It seems we must have shared some of the same frustration on the day that dining packages were released for the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays Presented by Advent Health. I was also online and was initially unable to make a reservation. I tried for several days and finally found some availability at Biergarten Restaurant. I kept searching and finally grabbed a reservation for Coral Reef Restaurant

    So, while I cannot guarantee that you will find an advanced dining reservation for the dining package, I strongly encourage you to keep checking because cancelations do happen! Check all of the available restaurants and all available times for each day of your trip. If you are traveling with anyone else, ask them to check for reservations as well. I had a friend who noticed that reservations had opened up, she alerted me, and I was able to make one and then another.

    In the meantime, be sure to make reservations at other dining locations. We love Rose & Crown Dining Room and were hoping to get a Candlelight Processional Dining Package with Rose & Crown Dining Room but I have not been able to find availability there. So, I will continue to look as well!

    Brittany, I know this may not be them most reassuring answer, but persistence does work! Sending you a little extra dining reservation pixie dust for good measure!

    Magic and memories,
