Too soon? Well, not really… not if you’re planning to spend part of the holiday season in Walt Disney World. If that’s the case, we’ve got some great info for you about one of the most popular holiday events at Disney World. Booking is now officially open for the Candlelight Processional Dining Packages! AND we also have the preliminary list of narrators!
The Candlelight Processional features the retelling of the Christmas story by a celebrity narrator. The reading is accompanied by a robed choir and a full orchestra performing Christmas carols.

Click here to see which restaurants are included on the 2017 Candlelight Processional list! Booking a package entitles each person in the party to a guaranteed seat (though not necessarily covered seating) at the evening’s performance of the Candlelight Processional.
Packages are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seatings. Breakfast starts at $27.00 for adults ($14.00 per child); lunch packages start at $44.00 for adults ($15.50 per child); and dinner packages start at $51.00 for adults ($17.50 per child).
If you book your package via the Disney World website, your showtime will be automatically assigned (with a breakfast booking typically offering a seat at the earliest show, etc., depending on availability). However, booking by phone at (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463) allows you to speak with a Cast Member who may be able to help you choose your preferred show time.
