    We are going to WDW the last week of November 2018. Do you know if you can use the dining plan to pay for the Candlelight Processional dinner?

    Hi, Koen! It is truly the most wonderful time of the year to be at Walt Disney World. The resort hotels will be decorated in holiday finery that reflects the theme of the resort, and the parks will be decked out in holiday decor that makes my eyes sparkle. 

    There is absolutely nothing I love more than the Candlelight Processional. I still get goosebumps when the 50 piece orchestra performs Silent Night, and the choir director turns to the audience to sing along. Not gonna lie - there is some head swaying and feet tapping when I listen to the massed choir perform. And I may have shed a tear or two as the whole crowd stands for the Hallelujah Chorus. Christmas spirit just comes right over me when I see this spectacular holiday event. 

    While the dining packages have not yet been released for the upcoming Christmas season, in years past, you absolutely could use one of the Disney Dining Plans for the Candlelight Processional dinner package. In the past, it has been a 2-credit table service meal. We like to switch up restaurants each year, but our favorite year ever was one when we were at the Rose & Crown Dining Room. While we were dining, it turned midnight Christmas day in the UK, and the cast members instantly became excited to be celebrating Christmas morning. But even when it's not Christmas, you can't pass up the sticky toffee pudding - so good.

    I wish you an absolutely magical time at this incredible holiday tradition.
