    When using the Candlelight Processional dining package, how does paying for it work when not using the dining plan. Do you pay menu prices or is it a fixed price? I always get such great answers......Thanks!

    Hi Charlene! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It is so great to hear from you again.

    When I saw your question I just knew I had to answer it. The Candlelight Processional is my absolute favorite holiday event at the Walt Disney World Resort. There is something so special about hearing the story of Christmas surrounded by so many other guests. I feel that this event is something that brings people together no matter what your background is! Holidays Around the World at Epcot offers many special events for the holiday season.

    My family always takes advantage of the Candlelight Processional Dining Package. Since this event is very popular, when participating in the dining plan you are guaranteed a seat. You won’t have to wait in line for long to be seated either! What makes this even more fabulous is that there are plenty of restaurants to choose from and we have always found the menu to be delicious at each place that we have tried!

    In the past each restaurant that participated in the Candlelight Processional Dining Package had set fixed pricing. Each meal consisted of one appetizer, one entrée, one non-alcoholic beverage, and one dessert or one full buffet if applicable. The cost of the meal did not include tax or gratuity. Details are not out yet regarding this year’s holiday events. I recommend that you follow the Disney Parks Blog for the most up to date announcements!

    I hope that you get to enjoy this special event. It really holds a special place in my heart!
