    Hi Moms and Dads! We are going to be in DW the 1st week of Dec. I'm interested in the Candlelight Processional. Is it like Fantasmic in that I can just show up to watch or do I have to get a ticket or do dinner reservations?

    Hi Nicole!

          The Candlelight Processional takes place in the American Gardens Theater which is on the World Showcase Lagoon across from the American Adventure. There are typically 3 to 4 shows per evening and I would recommend getting in line at least 60 to 90 minutes early to get a seat because it is quite popular because of the celebrity narrators and the incredible show.  I would not recommend just showing up for the Candlelight Processional because you probably will not get a seat and there may not even be any standing room left in the rear of the outdoor theater either.  I love the Candlelight Processional and believe me that it is worth waiting in line for!  You can book a Candlelight Processional Dining Package which gives you reserved seats for the Candlelight Processional, but doing it this way will cost you money for the dinner package.  Keep in mind that you would still have to show up 30 to 45 minutes before the Candlelight Processional even if you have reserved tickets from a Candlelight Processional Dining Package.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
