    Candlelight Processional-Our CP package reservation says 5pm show and dinner at 7:15. So we should go to Rose & Crown early in the day and get pass for the show at the checkin counter? Also any advice on good place to sit in theater? NPH narrates

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, April!

    The magical retelling of the Nativity story during the Candlelight Processional is my absolute favorite part of visiting Epcot during the holiday season.  Since I was a little girl I dreamed of listening to the choir sing and I was not disappointed on my first visit - goosebumps!  I am so excited that you will be experiencing this holiday tradition during your vacation and secured the dining package to do so.

    As my friend Brandy shared with you earlier this week, you are able to pick up your vouchers early in the day for priority seating during the 5:00 PM show, even if your reservation is after the event.  Visit Rose and Crown to pick up those magical vouchers so you can verify you received the correct show time and have them in hand.

    I have to be honest, I am jealous you have the opportunity to hEAR Neil Patrick Harris tell the story!  I have heard some fabulous celebrity narrators, but listening to him is on my list of must-dos.  As he is a popular storyteller each year, I would recommend you arrive in the dining package queue across from the American Pavilion at least thirty to forty minutes before showtime to get in line for the best seating. 

    Cast Members will open the line for dining package seating first and you can then find a seat.  In my experience, the best seats are center or near the front on the two sides of the pavilion.  Here you are immersed in the sounds of the season, especially the trumpets!

    Enjoy the magic of the holidays this season!  Angie
