    Going to WDW in Dec with 7 yr grandson and want to know what are your suggestions for restaurants to eat at for the Candlelight procession,do they guarantee seating? Do you think 7 is too young to enoy it? What time is the show? Thank you!

    Hi Regina,

    I love to dine at either LeCellier in the Canada Pavilion or Biergarten in the Germany Pavilion before attending the Candlelight Processional.  If your grandson would prefer a character dining experience, consider making your reservation at the Garden Grill restaurant in the Land Pavilion instead. 

    If your grandson has a fairly lengthy attention span and loves music, then the Candlelight Processional would be great for him.  If he has trouble sitting still for extended periods of time, he might be too young for this glorious experience.  The telling of the Christmas story amidst gorgeous music is inspiring but some small children have a tough time staying engaged by the experience at the end of a busy day in the parks.  You could always leave before the show ends if your little guy loses interest. 

    Folks with a Candlelight Processional dining package are admitted to the America Gardens Theatre earlier than other guests.  Guaranteed seating is part of the Candlelight Processional Dining Packages.  In the past, there have been three shows nightly (5 pm, 6:45 pm, and 8:15 pm).  Be sure to select the one that best suits your grandson's schedule.

    Wishing you and your family a vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust this December!
