    Can't seem to find much information on this... When is information usually released about the current year's Candlelight Processional? Is making a reservation with the dining package actually worth the trouble of snagging one? Thanks!

    Hi Karen,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this great question about one of my favorite holiday experiences at Walt Disney World. The Candlelight Processional at Epcot is top on my list of can't-miss holiday events! The beautiful sight of candlelit choir members, the grand scale of participants, and the awe-inspiring harmonies sung during the performance makes it one of the most moving and poignant holiday experiences.

    To answer your question, if you are keen on attending this event, it is absolutely worthwhile to book one of the Candlelight Processional Dining Packages. The advantage of doing so is twofold; not only will it reduce your wait time for the event, but it will also guarantee that you will have a seat for the performance.

    As the Candlelight Processional is extremely popular with both vacationing guests and local Florida residents who make it a tradition to celebrate the holidays each year by attending one of these performances, the Dining Packages do book early. Therefore, you will want to make your reservation as early as possible once reservations open for booking.

    Typically reservations open for the Dining Packages in late June or early July, so I expect information will be released very soon. Keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog as I expect we will be seeing announcements about this year's event shortly. 

    Wishing you all the best with your continued planning for your upcoming holiday vacation at Walt Disney World. Should you have any other questions, please send them our way. We would love to hEAR from you!
