    To enjoy the Candlelight Processional do we have to buy a dinner package in order to view the procession. Is it possible to get good viewing area without making a dinner reservation? Also, which times would be the best for this event -5, 6:45, 8?

    Hi Parin!

    While a dinner package is not required to attend the Candlelight Processional at Epcot, I do highly recommend it.

    With the dinner package, you'll receive special seating and tickets to a specific performance of the show. Without these tickets, you'll need to line up at least an hour (if not more) before each performance in order to have seats for the show. Even lining up very early will not guarantee entrance to the performance if the theater fills up quickly.

    If you are planning on trying the stand-by line, I would suggest trying for the 8pm show, as the last show of each night typically does have the least (although still quite high) attendance.

    Hope you have a great trip!
