    My family of 5 & I will be in Epcot to celebrate my bday on 12/5! Yay! If I purchase the Candlelight Proc. package, do we still have to wait in line for seats or do we just go right in? Is the guaranteed seating worth using 2 of my dining credits?

    Hi Tamara! YES......if you want to see the beautiful Candlelight Processional at Epcot I feel it is very important to get the dinner package. Even with the package you will find that you can wait up to 40 minutes in line to get a seat up close. If that doesn't matter to you where you sit then the wait can be shorter. For those that don't have a dinner package guaranteed entry the wait can be over an hour and during busy times they just might not get into the next show and will have to continue to wait in line for the next one.

    This show is one of the reasons I make sure I visit Disney World during the holidays. It is so beautiful and certainly will put you in the holiday spirit quickly. I like being fairly close but not the first row so that is why I get the dinner package and still wait in line for about 40 minutes. You don't have to do that and you will still get a seat but further back when you go towards show time. Just don't wait until the last minute as they let those waiting on stand by in about 15 minutes before show time and you will want to be in your seat by that point.  Enjoy and have a super birthday at Disney this December!
