    I want to see the Epcot Candlight Processional on 12/16, what is the best ticket to purchase?

    Hi, Heidi! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. Attending the Candlelight Processional is a joyous way to celebrate the holiday season. This retelling of the Nativity story is an annual must-do for my family. We have enjoyed listening to so many wonderful narrators over the years, but I have to say that my favorites have been Edward James Olmos and Gary Sinise. I looked at the schedule and see that Pat Sajak will be narrating the evening you plan to attend! You are sure to have a wonderful show with him and the glorious mass choir!

    The Candlelight Processional is usually shown three times an evening during the holiday season. Admission to all shows is included with your Disney Theme Park Ticket, so there is no extra ticket to purchase. If you are only going to Epcot for the day and not planning to visit any other theme parks, then you will just need a 1-Day Disney Theme Park Ticket. If you plan to visit multiple parks that day, then you will need to add on the Park Hopper Option to your ticket. Of course, the best value with Disney Theme Park Tickets is with purchasing multiple days. You can use the interactive ticketing calendar to see how the price per day drops the more you plan to play.

    I do recommend you arrive very early to the showing of Candlelight Processional that you wish to attend. This is an extremely popular offering and guests usually line up over an hour in advance to get the best seats. There is a Candlelight Processional Dining Package offered, which includes a meal at your choice of available Epcot or Epcot-area dining location before one of that evening's shows. Vouchers to enter a reserved seating area is included with the meal. You will still need to arrive a bit early for the show with the voucher, but not quite as early as without it!

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
