    I will be visiting 12/13-12/18. I was thinking about making reservations for the Candelight Processional Dinner Package but I was wondering if it would be something a 4 yr old would enjoy and sit through. Also I will have a 10 month old. Thanks!!!

    I have to be honest and tell you this is a question you are probably way better equipped to answer than I am.  I have three daughters, and I have been taking them to the Candlelight Processional since they were babies, with varying results.  My oldest daughter was a much better sitter around age six, but my now eight year old has enjoyed the show from the time she was an infant.  She readily sat through the show from her very first time there.  The youngest of my daughters is now four, and she sat great up until this past Christmas, and this past year, she fell asleep - which was good, because she was antsy,

    If this is going to be a once in a lifetime trip, I'd say go ahead and book the package, but be prepared with something for your kids to do - bring coloring books, quiet toys, stuff for the four year old to sit quietly and do.  You may have to take the baby out if you can't find anything that might keep the baby quiet. 

    If, on the other hand, your trips to Walt Disney World are going to be an annual occurrence, you might want to just grab a seat across the way and listen to the show from a location where you can move the children if you need to.  You'll find some benches, and a restaurant right there in the vicinity, and while you may not be able to see everything, you'll hear the beautiful music.  Then when the kids are a bit older, book the dinner package. 

    If you think that your kids would sit through the show, because they've been exposed to this type of thing and have done well with it, then book the package.  This is where you are a better judge than I am of how well they might do!

    Enjoy your upcoming vacation!
