    My 180 comes before processional is open can I make reservation for restraint then modify when opens. Also do I get reserved viewing fo illuminations with package

    Hi, Joan! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Attending the Candlelight Processional is my favorite way to welcome in the holiday season. This joyous retelling of the Nativity Story is beloved by many guests, so securing a spot in the reserved section with the Candlelight Processional Dining Package is a great choice for your day in Epcot.

    Joan, making an Advance Dining Reservation at your favorite Epcot dining location now will really not help you later when the Candlelight Processional Dining Packages are released. The packages are always listed separately from the regular reservations at each dining location. If you make an Advance Dining Reservation at one location now, you will just have to cancel it later before completing your package reservation later. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, especially during early to mid-summer, as they usually announce when these packages become available.

    This past year, the Candlelight Processional Dining Package included your meal and admission vouchers for each guest in your dining party to enter the reserved Candlelight Processional viewing section. I know in previous years, there was a reserved section for that evening's IllimiNations: Reflections of Earth; however, it was not included this past year. Specifics about this year's packages have not been released yet, so we will have to just keep an eye out for that, too.

    Thank you for stopping by with your question, Joan. Please let us know if we can help you plan more of your pixie-dusted adventure!
