    Hi Moms Panel, How long is the Candlelight Processional? We have a ticket for the 645pm show and then reservations at La Hacienda de San Angel at 815pm for a late dinner at to watch Illuminations at 930pm. Will we have enough time?

    Hi Melissa! The Candlelight Processional is one of my favorite Disney special events that takes place each year. I try to book a trip every year so I can see this and get into the spirit of the holiday.

    You will have more then enough time to enjoy the show at 6:45pm and then leisurely take a walk to the Mexican restaurant, La Hacienda de San Angel for your 8:15pm reservation. The Candlelight show is approximately 45 minutes at the most. Each year they tweak it or make small changes so it is hard to say exactly how long it will be this year. But it will not last longer then 45 minutes as they have three shows to do each evening and must get the guests in and out as well as the choirs.

    I hope you get lots of pixie dust at the restaurant so you can enjoy the Illuminations: Reflections of Earth show at 9:30pm with a window table. When you arrive please ask for a window table and they will see if that is possible. If you are willing to wait a bit it might be easier so let them know. Obviously many guests who do get a window table are not always willing to leave or rush to give it up to others but I will be sending good vibes your way in hopes you are able to snag one!
