    Hi, If I want to get the CLP dining package and attend one of the specific CLP times do I have to eat at a certain time? Example: I want to attend the 8:15 show. What time do I have to book my dining package? Thanks

    Hi, Karen!

    Epcot's Candlelight Processional certainly is a "must do" during the holiday season. The beautiful choir, amazing orchestra, and celebrity narrators form the perfect combination for a festive event. However, it is super popular so getting the Candlelight Dinner Package is a great idea if you want a guaranteed seat.

    Shows are presented 3 times each night during the season. While the exact times for 2018 are not yet posted, if you want the 8:15 pm showing, you will want to book dinner, probably between the hours of 4:00pm - 5:45pm. Your show time will be determined by your reservation, and will be indicated when making the reservation for the Candlelight Dinner Package. Last year, reservations for Candlelight became available in late June, so start watching around that same time this year.

    Wishing you a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World! During your planning, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest updates of holiday happenings.
