    We are coming to WDW 12/7-12/14/19. I want to make ADR for a restaurant @ Epcot combined with preferred seating for Candlelight Proc.. When will the dates for the Proc. be announced & will it be in time for me to make those ADR in June? Thx!

    Hey, howdy, hey Susan and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's that most wonderful time of the year when the winter holiday festivities occupy the place "where dreams come true." What a magical way to spend the holiday season with snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom Park, trees over 60 feet tall at all the theme parks and some Disney Resort hotels, gingerbread houses you wish you could live in and of course, the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays which includes the Candlelight Processional.

    Last year the dining package reservations for the Candlelight Processional were released mid-July and I anticipate the same this year. To be on the safe side, I would start checking for Candlelight Processional Dining Packages around mid-June. Be sure to pay special attention to the Disney Parks Blog which releases the latest and greatest information about exciting Disney adventures and experiences.

    Disney Dad Tip: My favorite holiday activities last year happened at Disney Springs. Stitch's Holiday Gift Hunt and the Christmas Tree Trail were amazing holiday adventures. We searched all over Disney Spring to find those silly gifts to get the prize and the Christmas Trees, decorated from Disney movies and theme park attractions, were "practically perfect in every way."

    Susan, enjoy making many Magical Memories this winter holiday season.
