    The Candlelight Processional takes place at the American Gardens Threatre in Epcot. Would you suggest going with 6 kids ages 2-10.

    That's a tough one, Becky.  The show does take place in an outdoor theater so it's not terribly formal.  But I would worry that the two-year-old might get a bit antsy during the performance.  Depending upon the ages of the rest of the children, that might make it difficult for you to fully enjoy the show.  And after waiting in line so long to see it, I'd hate for your experience to be compromised.  Have you considered viewing the performance from outside of the theater?  Doing so would allow you to hear the music and see the choir and listen to the readings without actually waiting for a seat inside the theater.  Your kids might better enjoy it that way, too, because they wouldn't have to be patient during the wait and quiet during the show. 

    I certainly don't want to dissuade you from going; it's a moving experience.  You know your children best.  If you think you could keep them occupied with things like stickers and board books and small snacks, then by all means, get a seat and enjoy the performance.  But if you think they'd be wiggly and bored, perhaps viewing the show from outside of the theater is a good compromise.  Good luck!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
