    We were hoping to catch the Candlelight Processional, but are pretty sure our 3 yo daughter will not be able to sit through a meal, waiting time and for the show. Any suggestions on the best times to arrive if you don't have dinner reservations?

    All that sitting still and being "good" is hard for me, Jessica, let alone a three-year-old!  There is hope, though.  Last year, my family visited Epcot in mid-December and had success in seeing the Candlelight Processional without a dinner package.  My best advice to you would be to plan on seeing the first showing.  We lined up a little over an hour before the scheduled start time.  Our time in the queue was greatly enhanced by the fact that we brought along caramel corn from the nearby Karamell Kuche in Germany.  Other ideas to keep your daughter entertained in line are: bubbles, silly putty, and stickers.  Also, the line is set up so that it wouldn't be a nuisance for your daughter to wiggle around a bit.  My kids entertain themselves with twirling and dancing and there is room in this line for both!  I hope it works out for you; the show is amazing and well worth the wait!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
