    Hi, We are planning our first trip. We have booked into a Candlelight Processional Dining Package. It costs 2 dining plan tickets. Are we able to pay without using dining tickets? If so then Are we better off to pay or use the dining plan? Cheers

    Hi Felicity! What a great question! This one is going to require a bit of planning and math on your part, but it'll be worth it, because in the end you'll save money! You can opt to pay out of pocket or use your dining plan credits for any of your meals, including the Candlelight Processional Dinner Package. I use both the Disney World website and the AllEars site, which posts current menus with prices. This way you will be able to figure out the best, most expensive meals where you'll want to use your dining plan credits, and which ones to pay for out of credit. It will be easier to best figure out whether or not to use your credits for Candlelight if you have an idea of where else you will be dining.

    Hope this helps Felicity! Write back with any other questions!
