Disney World’s Candlelight Processional is a magical special event that will be offered this year between November 26th and December 30th. See our 2010 Candlelight Processional Dinner Packages page for more information as it becomes available and to read all about the Processional and what to expect, including our personal tips and tricks for making the evening an unforgettable one.
The show is always incredibly popular, with guests lining up for one or more hours to get a seat at one of the three nightly performances (5:00, 6:45 and 8:15 pm). While the show is free (with Epcot admission), you can choose to purchase a Dining Package, which will give you guaranteed entry at one of the shows.

Dinner Package Information
Booking a Candlelight Processional Dinner Package means that you’ll have an advanced dining reservation for a participating restaurant at a particular time. Once you dine there, you’ll receive a badge that allows you to get into the guaranteed entry line outside the America Gardens Theater in Epcot to wait for your Processional performance to begin.
Unfortunately, we still recommend that you line up early (30-45 minutes in advance), as seats are not assigned and the closer you are to the front of the line corresponds to how much choice you’ll have when picking a seat. Remember that half of the amphitheater is not covered, so if it’s raining, you will get wet if you’re not seated close enough to the stage.
Last year, Dinner Package purchasers were also given reserved viewing for Illuminations on the evening of their Processional package, so that sweetens the deal.
If you’re using the Disney Dining Plan, the Candlelight Processional Package will cost 2 table-service credits per person.
For more details on last year’s event, including timing and participating restaurants, see our 2010 Candlelight Processional Dinner Package page.
Bookings will open August 26, 2010. At time of booking, a credit card number will be taken, but full payment will be made at the restaurant on the evening of your package. The Candlelight Processional Dinner Package may be reserved by calling (407) WDW-DINE.
