    Hello! We are hoping to go to the Candlelight Processional on Dec 15th. As we don't have the dining package for this event how long in advance should we be there for the 5:00 show. Thanks!

    Hi Mark,

    Thank your for coming to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your holiday question. This time of year is such an extra special time to travel to Walt Disney World with all of the added special events and decorations. 

    I am thrilled to hear that you are interested in going to the Candlelight Processional at Epcot during your magical visit. This musical program is absolutely amazing. The orchestration is breathtaking and the narration of the Christmas story is moving beyond belief, in my opinion. I see that on the day you plan to attend, Meredith Vieira is scheduled. While I have not witnessed her as a narrator, I have heard that she is a popular one. So, I would plan to arrive to the amphitheater near across from the American Adventure pavilion in Epcot at least an hour prior to showtime. It is hard to judge exactly what the crowd level will be on any given day, but an hour should be a safe bet.  

    I hope you have a memorable seasonal trip to this magical place.
