    If I make reservations at Via Napoli and Tusker House, can I call and convert them into Candlelight Proc and Rivers of Light dining packages if/when they become available? Or isn't it worth doing? Thanks so much for helping me plan.

    Hi Charlene! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I see that you will be coming to the Walt Disney World Resort during my favorite time of year! The Holiday Season at Disney is even more magical than any other time of year! There are so many beautiful decorations throughout all of the Theme Parks and Resort hotels. We love taking part in the special events such as the Candlelight Processional and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

    There haven’t been any details as of yet regarding dining packages for the Candlelight Processional or Rivers of Light. I suggest that you follow the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest and greatest news and happenings at Disney Parks!

    Now to answer your question unfortunately I do not think that you will be able to convert your dining reservations to dining packages if/when they become available. In the past the only way I was able to secure a dining package was by booking under that option. It is my understanding that there are a certain number of packages that are set aside to allow other non dining package bookings for other guests. If you really are hoping to dine at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria and Tusker House I do recommend booking reservations at these restaurants. If you are able to book a dinner package in the future then you can cancel your original reservations without penalty as long as you have cancelled within the cancellation window!

    I hope that you have an Unforgettable time!
