    For the candlelight processional, we have the lunch dining package with the 5:00pm show. I was wondering, since it isn't dark yet at that time, is the show as pretty then as the later showings? I want to be sure we get the best experience possible!

    Hi Magen!

    The Candlelight Processional is the one thing I try not to miss each year even if it means a quick trip to Disney in December. This show brings me into the spirit of the holiday better then anything else and I look forward to it again this year.

    I have been to all three of the show times and have never felt that one is better then the other. It might not be totally dark at the 5pm show but it is dusk and thus you will still get the full effect of the lighting. The choirs are under the covered area holding candles which clearing have a wonderful effect no matter what time you see the show.

    It is wise you have a dining package as the stand by lines can be extraordinarily long with no guarantee you will be seated. Having the package allows you to not waste precious park time in a line knowing there will be a seat for you as long as you show up at the time they request. After that all empty seasons will be filled by the stand by guests.

    Enjoy this very special performance and be sure and stay for the holiday Illuminations show at 9:30pm.
