    We have a lunch reservation at Rose and Crown and want to attend the first showing of the candlelight processional. Can we choose which show we attend or are we allocated the show time?

    Hi, Narelle! 

    The Candlelight Processional at Epcot is my favorite of the holiday happenings at Walt Disney World. With an amazing choir and incredible orchestra, this narrated telling of the story of the Nativity is so moving, and I find my holiday spirit here every year.

    When you book the Candlelight Processional Dining Package, your dining reservation has to be prior to the Candlelight Processional time. You are assigned a time based on when you choose your dining reservation. The earlier meals usually get the first show. late lunches often go to the second show, and dinner reservations will probably end up at the latest show.

    There isn't a way to choose your show, except in choosing your meal time. If you already have a lunch reserved at the Rose and Crown, it should tell you alongside your reservation which show time you have been assigned. 

    Make some time to visit the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays while you're there. You can see the storytellers from around the world telling the stories of the holiday traditions in their cultures, and there will also be some holiday kitchens where you can try some of the holiday flavors from all over the globe.

    Have an absolutely jolly holiday!
