    This is the 1st time my parents and I will be AT WDW for Christmas week. They are in their mid 70's. Any thoughts on attending the Candlelight Processional on Christmas eve vs. Christmas night? Best place for a meal on Christmas day? Any other tips?

    My family visited the Candlelight Processional with my grandparents (also in their 70's) in 2010, Kathleen.  My grandma adored the performance; I don't think she'll ever forget it!  Honestly, it won't make much of a difference whether you attend on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  Gary Sinise is scheduled to narrate both of those performances.  I think he'll be fantastic!  My family traditionally attends a candlelight worship service on Christmas Eve, so if it were me, I'd probably opt for that night.  Do you have any family traditions that you might be able to sort of mimic with the performance?  Perhaps that will be a deciding factor for you.

    As for a meal on Christmas Day, I think I would lean towards Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge.  The resort will be gorgeously decorated and a meal at Artist Point would be a quiet, refined place to enjoy a delicious holiday meal.  Have a festive trip, Kathleen!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
