    Hi!! My husband and I are going to be in Disney Dec 3-12 for a 1 anniversary trip. I have two ?'s. The CLP Dinner package, does tier 3 get you better seats than tier 1? What time should the reservation be for 8:00 show?

    Hi, Nicole!  My holiday season would not be complete without seeing the Candlelight Processional!  It is the one thing that no matter what else is going on in the world guarantees to put me in the Christmas spirit!

    The Tiers of the dining package do not entitle you to better seating, and the seats are not reserved.  If you book the dinner package for the Candlelight Processional, you line up on a different side of the American Gardens theater than those people without the dinner package.  The line of people with package tickets are seated first, so they usually fill in the front of the theater.  No seats are assigned, but you will have a better chance of being closer to the stage with the dinner package.  15 minutes prior to the start of the show, seating is opened up to everyone, so if you have purchased the dinner package, you will want to be sure to arrive more than 15 minutes prior to the start of the show to be seated before the guests who have not purchased the dinner package.

    The different tiers refer only to the cost of the meal - Tier 3 being the most expensive.  You have to make your meal reservation before your show, so if you are doing the 8 o'clock show, you will want to schedule your dinner so that you are finished not later than 7:30.  I would say book your dinner for around 6 o'clock - a little earlier if you can.  I always prefer to be a little bit early than scrambling to get there in time!

    Have a wonderful vacation, and enjoy this very moving event!
