    Hi Moms, coming home in December 2019. I will be able to make my ADR’s on June 14th but will have to wait until July 3rd to make an ADR for the candlelight processional. Should I just wait until July 3rd or make one now and hope they can switch if over?

    Hi Lori Ann!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I absolutely love the Candlelight Processional which is taking place at Epcot's World Showcase with nightly shows from November 29th - December 30th. It is so magical that I may have been known to shed a tear of emotion while watching the show!  There is no better way to experience this than to make a reservation for a Dining Package, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a lovely meal, with the assurance that your seat is reserved for the show.  However, as your 180-day mark for reserving your dining is soon approaching on June 14th, I would go ahead and make every regular dining reservation on that day.  On the date you intend to see the Candlelight Processional you can choose your restaurant at Epcot, and make a reservation as usual. Dining reservations can be made online, or by using your My Disney Experience account.  On July 3rd, go ahead and secure your Dining Package as you planned - and as this is a completely different reservation ensure that once you have secured your Dining Package you cancel the meal-only reservation.  It's worth noting that all dining cancellations should be made at least 24 hours in advance, otherwise a charge will be made.

    For this year's Candlelight Processional Dining Package, there is a very wide selection of 16 restaurants to choose from.  You may like to know that there are also some breakfast reservations available at Disney's Yacht Club Resort: Ale & Compass Breakfast Buffet, or at Epcot's Future World Land Pavilion: Garden Grill Breakfast, or at Disney's BoardWalk Resort for the Trattoria al Forno Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast.  You will receive your seating vouchers at the restaurant, and your seats are guaranteed at the Candlelight Processional if you have booked a dining package.  Reservations can be made online, or by calling (407) 939-3378.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
