    When do candlelight processional dining packages become available for reservation? What restaurants typically offer this in Epcot?

    Hi there, Kyle, and welcome to planDisney!

    The holiday season (and your vacation!) will be here before you know it, so it's great that you're already planning ahead. EPCOT's Candlelight Processional will definitely be one of the highlights of your trip. For some of my fellow planDisney panelists, like Tracie, the holidays are not complete without enjoying this joyful event.

    The Candlelight Processional Dining Package reservations opened last year in October. So, be on the lookout for them to open around that time this year. However, the best way to be among the first to hear the news is to regularly check out the Disney Parks Blog or follow @disneyparks and @plandisneypanel on social media.  

    Kyle, the 2023 participating restaurants have not been announced yet. But here is a list of last year's participating restaurants to give you an idea of what to expect:
    Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
    Biergarten Restaurant
    Coral Reef Restaurant
    Garden Grill Restaurant
    Le Cellier Steakhouse
    Rose & Crown Dining Room

    AN EXTRA GEM: You can't go wrong with any of these choices, but my family's favorite in this lineup is Garden Grill Restaurant because we love character dining options at the Resort. And nothing beats hanging out with Chip 'n' Dale!  

    I hope that you have the BEST time celebrating the holidays at the Most Magical Place on Earth, Kyle. If you have any further questions, please revisit us here at planDisney. 

    Magic always,
