    Will be in WDW over busy Christmas holiday and looking for information of how they let the people in the special viewing area for Illuminations when they had the Candlelight Dining Package? Since there is only 1 show is it the area large enough??

    Hi, Antonio!  When you book your dinner package, the restaurant will give you a sticker for each member of your party to wear.  That sticker is what we used in the past to gain admission to the special viewing area for Illuminations.

    There are three Candlelight Processional shows each evening, so it may seem like there would be no way to accommodate all of the dinner package guests in one space for Illuminations.  Honestly, though, we did it last year and while the area was certainly very busy, there was room for a few more!  I think some people opt either not to stay for Illuminations, or they have a spot already scoped out that they prefer to use to watch the show.  The space itself is quite large, though, and on Christmas Eve last year, I don't think there was any problem with being filled to capacity in the space.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
