    Hello, I want to take my kids to see the candlelight processional this year. I tried to make a reservation for a dinner package at Berigarten and they have space for 530 pm but to see the 830 pm show. Am I supposed to sit there for 3 hours?

    Hi Joan,

    One of my favorite times to visit Walt Disney World Resort is during the holidays and the Candlelight Processional at Epcot is top on my list of can't-miss holiday events! The beautiful sight of candlelit choir members, the grand scale of participants, and the awe-inspiring harmonies sung during the performance makes it one of the most moving and poignant holiday experiences.

    You are smart to be thinking early about booking one of the Candlelight Processional Dinner Packages, which will reduce your wait time and ensure that you have a seat that evening's performance. The Candlelight Processional is a beloved annual event which is extremely popular with both vacationing Guests and Orlando locals who make it a tradition to celebrate the holidays each year by attending one of these performances.

    Joan, once you finish your delicious your meal at Biergarten Restaurant at the Germany Pavilion at Epcot, you will be provided a voucher which will allow you to queue up in the special line for Candlelight Processional Dinner Package ticket holders prior to the 8:15 p.m. performance. The line will be located just outside the America Gardens Theater across from the American Pavilion. Following your meal, there is no need for you to stay at the Biergarten Restaurant until the performance begins. You will be free to continue touring Epcot at your leisure. Then, approximately 45 minutes before the show you will want to make your way to the Theater.

    Wishing you a fantastic upcoming holiday visit at Walt Disney World!
