    I have a question regarding candlelight procession .. if you do not have a dining package are you still allowed to watch it, but just will not get preferred seating (I’m ok with this) or does it have to be booked ?

    Hello again, Sai,

    Welcome back to planDisney, and thanks for asking such a great question about spending a jolly-holly-day trip within the magic of Walt Disney World Resort during the 2022 Christmas season.

    Christmastime is such a wonderful time of the yEAR to visit the Sunshine State of Florida!  Sai, you're sure to love everything from the beautiful decor to the whimsical Holiday ambiance found in all the Disney Theme Parks, Disney Springs, and even within the Disney Resorts Collection hotels.

    You are quite correct in thinking that at present for 2021, Guests are not required to have EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays - Candlelight Processional Dining Packages to gain seating within the America Gardens Theatre.

    Those Guests who aren't taking advantage of the preferred seating arrangements within the Candlelight Processional Dining Package are able to find any available seating left within the America Gardens Theatre on a purely first-come, first-served basis to enjoy an uplifting performance of the Candlelight Processional.

    Sai, I hope that I've been able to provide a little pixie-dusted insight for you today.  Please be sure to drop back to me here at planDisney if there's anything else I can assist you with concerning your 2022 holiday plans to visit the most magical place on earth.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
