    I didn't manage to snag a dining package reservation for Candlelight Processional on our Epcot Day. What are my chances for getting a same day one from Regal Eagle? It's only for 2 people. I don't want to get my hopes up.

    Hiya Ines! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited about your upcoming visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth! Before you know it, you'll be hanging out with Mickey, Minnie, and the rest of your favorite Disney characters!

    A visit during the holiday season is not complete without a viewing of the Candlelight Processional. This unique entertainment offering at EPCOT is one of the reasons I fell in love with Disney theme parks. The special narrators each night make it a truly one-of-a-kind experience that sets it apart from anything else. To get a great viewing location, purchasing a Candlelight Processional Dining Package is the right way to go. Not only will you enjoy a delicious meal, but you'll receive guaranteed seating for the event.

    Several table-service dining locations are offering dining packages for this event. Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue is the only quick-service location that offers same-day availability. While I can't say for certain that there will be openings on the day of your visit, I have high hopes that you will snag a spot. Since you are visiting earlier in the month, this may be a less busy time to catch this Christmastime event than later in the season. I would go into the day with tempered expectations just in case, but be ready to enjoy if you are able to get in.

    With your visit still several weeks away, there is always a chance that Advanced Dining Reservations open up before you arrive. I would continue to check back to the Walt Disney World website periodically to see if any reservations appear. Guests are always modifying their trips, so there is a great chance that something will pop up.

    Ines, I hope you have a magical visit later this year! Stop back and see us again at planDisney with any questions that come your way!

    See ya real soon!
