What You Need to Know About the Walt Disney World Candelight Processional Dining Package

The Disney World Candlelight Processional

During the event, the Christmas story is told by a celebrity narrator while a 50-piece orchestra and choir (composed of a Disney cast member choir along with an ever-changing group of guest choirs from around the country) accompany the re-telling. The event is held on select nights in November and December. The 2018 Candlelight Processional runs November 22 – December 30.

Disney World Candlelight Processional Dining Package

Because seating for the Candlelight Processional is scarce and first-come, first-served, many guests choose to guarantee their seat by purchasing a Candlelight Processional Dining Package.

This coveted ticket provides guests with a lunch or dinner meal at select Epcot restaurants and guaranteed seating to the popular Candlelight Processional holiday spectacular held at 5:00, 6:45, and 8:15pm. Reserved fireworks viewing is not included.

Candlelight Processional Package Dining Time

Different meal times correspond to different show times. When booking online, guests will see which show time is assigned to their Advanced Dining Reservation once they select a dining time. Guests booking by phone may verify corresponding show times with the Cast Member they book through.

Candlelight Processional Dining Package Details

The package includes your choice of an appetizer, entree, dessert, and non-alcoholic, non-specialty beverage from the chosen restaurant’s menu or 1 full buffet where applicable.
