    Hi Amanda! 

    So happy to help!!  Ok...looking at the times offered for last year, I think you could make the last showing on your arrival day (assuming it shows at or around 8:15 pm).  But this would all hinge on what time your dining reservations would be.  I always say allow an hour to get from the airport (via Disney's Magical Express) to your resort, and then another hour or so (being way generous--it generally take 15-20 minutes) to check in and get settled in your room.  I like to add this extra 'cushion' of time in case of flight delays and/or 'stuff' that always seems to happen on travel days.  You'll be able to leave for Epcot around 5:40, and I'd factor 15-30 minutes for Disney Transport to get you there (depending on what resort), so that would put you at Epcot around 6:10 or so.  I think a 6:30 pm reservation would be reasonable, and it would get you out in enough time to walk over and get your seats.

    I've had the pleasure of seeing the Candlelight Processional several times, and EACH time it moves me to tears.  It is simply beautiful!  I couldn't think of a better way to start a vacation! 

    Have a magical vacation!
