    In order to book a Candlelight Processional Dining Package, do I need a park reservation for Epcot that specific day? Or if I have a park hopper ticket can I hop there in the evening for the dining reservation and show? Thanks!

    Hello, Kelly!

    Welcome back to planDisney with an excellent question! We are thrilled to continue to assist you as you plan your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Guests are advised to book in-park dining at the park where they have a Disney Park Pass reservation. You can still book a Candlelight Processional Dining Package and enter EPCOT later in the day since you have tickets with Park Hopper Option, but please note that Park Hopper availability is subject to change. Unfortunately, dining reservations do not guarantee access to a park. 

    The holidays are one of the busiest times of the year at the Walt Disney World Resort, so I recommend making a Disney Park Pass reservation for EPCOT if attending the Candlelight Processional is important to you. I ended up making new theme park reservations after booking a Candlelight Processional Dining Package to be sure I will not miss the performance!

    I hope this information is helpful, Kelly. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and check out our Panel Extras for more tips and advice as you plan your Disney vacation!
