    Thank you for the reply on the Candlelight Processional. Another ? on C.P. Which show is best to go to, the 5pm or later? Should we book dinner about an hour before show and if we go to 5pm show do we come back later for seats for Illuminations? Plse adv

    Hello again Hazel!

    I'm glad you wrote back because I needed to tell you some more information in my first answer - the Candlelight Dinner Package is actually a lunch package if you book the first show! Here are the times for the Advanced Dining Reservations that will correspond with the shows:

    5:00 pm show ADRs are from 1:45 - 2:45 pm and will serve lunch.
    6:45 pm show ADRs are from 3:30 - 4:30 pm and will serve dinner.
    8:15 pm show ADRs are from 5:00 - 6:00 pm and will serve dinner.

    You can then be seated for the Candlelight Processional 15 minutes prior to showtime in the section reserved for those that purchased the dinner package. You can still line up earlier than that if you want to get the best seats.

    The pre-arranged viewing for Illuminations will not be seating, it will just be an area set aside for dinner package guests. You will find out the location of the the viewing area when you reserve your package.

    So it's up to you if you'd rather eat earlier and then enjoy the park a bit before the show and then again before Illuminations, or try to plan the dining, show and Illuminations all close together. I know my kids don't do too well waiting around for fireworks, so personally, I'd probably go with the later show to keep them occupied right up to Illuminations, but you know your granddaughters best.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. ~Suzannah
