    Hello! I'm wondering when the Candlelight Processional dining packages will be available to book? They are supposed to open today 10/26, however when I signed on at 6:30 am EST today the website was experiencing tech issues for about 2 hours.

    Hi Lucille,

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    I wish I had more helpful news. EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays - Candlelight Processional Dining Packages are booked solid for the day of your arrival. We are going in December and they are booked for the entire week we are there. Take heart, availability has opened up from time to time. I was online the morning reservations opened as well and encountered the same technical difficulties that you encountered. While I was unable to secure a reservation on that day, I kept checking and was able to secure one on another day.

    When I did find availability, it was at Biergarten Restaurant, so I made that reservation and kept looking. I was eventually able to make a reservation for a dining package at Coral Reef Restaurant, so I canceled the Biergarten Restaurant reservation! My advice is to just keep looking. And, if you find a reservation, book it! 

    In the meantime, be sure to make other advanced dining reservations. Initially, we wanted a dining package reservation at Rose & Crown Dining Room, but I have yet to find availability there. So, we will keep our advanced dining reservation there for dinner and enjoy the Candlelight Processional Dining Package with Coral Reef Restaurant. I say this to say, check all of the restaurants offering the dining package when searching for availability.

    Lucille, your arrival date is fast approaching! Get those bags packed and get ready for an Incredible Disney visit!

    Magic and memories,
