    Hi Panel! We'll be visiting the second week of Dec. and was wondering if you would recommend the CP in Epcot. I have four children (4-9) and not sure if this would be something they would enjoy. Thank you!

    Howdy Jessica!!

    Candlelight Processional is a family favorite!!  We made it an annual event prior to having kiddos and have continued to enjoy the majesty of the evening since becoming parents. 

    We currently have a 6 and 4 year old.  It was "easier" to experience prior to being parents:  each show we have made one (or more) trips to the restroom with one or both children, usually at least one of the kiddos falls asleep and there are times that they get restless.  However - they love it none the less - and so do we!!  If they see a picture of Candlelight Processional, they get huge smiles on their faces and our 6 year old has been known to break into song...singing music from Candlelight Processional.

    We typically have a great adult to kid ratio.  1:1 if it's just the hubby and me and 2:1 if my parents join us.  I don't know what it would be like if you are 2:4 but since you experience this on a daily basis, I'm sure you will be fine.  We typically break out our iPhones, silence them and let the kids play games if they get restless during the show.

    The dinner is always fabulous, the show is awe-inspiring and the chance to enjoy a VIP viewing area for the Epcot fireworks is amazing!!

    Since becoming parents, we try to book the early show.  After your meal, you will see people lining up early for the show so be prepared for that.  If you book a Candlelight Processional package, you are guaranteed a seat but be prepared to have one of the adults stand in line for the show while the other entertains your children.  This will help you to select a seat that works best for your family.

    Candlelight Processional truly is spectacular and if you decide to experience it, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions and have a magical day!!!
