    I am interested in possibly booking the Candlelight Processioal dining package. Do I pay for it when I book it or when we actually eat at the restaurant?

    Hi there, Hollie!

    The Christmas season at Walt Disney World is, to me, truly the most wonderful time of the year. My family and I visit every year during the Christmas season, and by far, my all time favorite thing ever is the Candlelight Processional.

    Taking place at Epcot between Thanksgiving and Christmas, this is the classic story of the Nativity. It is narrated by celebrities from all walks of life - stage, screen, music, and television - and accompanied by the most spectacular choir and orchestra. I will admit that at least once during every performance, I get teary eyed. I can't help it.

    The Candlelight Processional Dining Packages, which usually become available to book some time over the summer, require a credit card guarantee at the time of booking, but your actual dinner will not be charged until you are at the restaurant. Once you've eaten, you'll be given your tickets to the show associated with your dining reservation, and you'll pay for the package at that time. If for some reason you need to cancel, make sure you do so at least the day before in order to avoid penalties.

    Wishing you the absolutely most magical holiday season at Walt Disney World!
