    Is the Epcot Candlelight Processional appropriate for toddlers, preschoolers? I'm particularly concerned with their attention span and ability to enjoy the show. If they become restless, I won't be able to enjoy the show myself. My kids are 3 & 5 years

    Hi Amanda!

    I want to begin by saying that I absolutely LOVE the Candlelight Processional at Epcot.  It always brings me to tears and puts me in the Christmas spirit like nothing else can.

    However, I will say that for little kids, it can be a bit boring.  My sons were five and eight the last time we went as a family, and they were pretty bored.  They didn't really distract me, but I did feel bad for them that they weren't having fun.  That was seven years ago, so we didn't really have phone apps and games to keep them occupied during the performance.  My kids, at that age, were used to sitting in church services with me, so they knew how to act and were able to sit through it...but I can't say they enjoyed it.  

    If you really want to see it, and you are comfortable with your kids playing some games if they get fidgety, then I would go for it.   You know your kids best!   Do what you think would work for you guys, but just don't be disappointed if your kids aren't super excited about it.  

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
