    When will the candlelight processional dining packages be available? Thanks, Kathy

    Hi there, Kathy! 

    You'll have to join me in the waiting room for this one. The Candlelight Processional is my favorite holiday offering, and I have been waiting patiently to be able to book my own dining package. My holidays are not complete unless I have a date to visit Epcot, enjoy the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, and leave humming "Rejoice With Exceeding Great Joy."

    While the dates for the 2018 Candlelight Processional have been announced, and it takes place from Thanksgiving until the day before New Year's Eve, they have not yet announced narrators or when you can book dining packages. I have done a study - no, seriously, I have - of the history or when the dining packages become available to book, and what I want to tell you is any day now. This is purely an educated guess on my part, but in years past, it has almost always been available to book just into the start of summer through mid-July. 

    I'm checking every day, so anytime you want to come on back and double check with me, I'll keep you updated with the most recent information. I'll keep my fingers crossed you get the dates and restaurants you want.

    Thank you for your question, Kathy!
