2015 Candlelight Processional

In the middle of summer, the Christmas season may be the furthest thing from your mind. But for those planning a Walt Disney World vacation this December, you'll be excited to know that reservations are now available for the 2015 Candlelight Processional Dining Packages!

 
A beloved annual event at Epcot, the Candlelight Processional is the retelling of the Christmas story by a celebrity guest, a mass choir consisting of cast members and students, the Voices of Liberty, and a 50 piece orchestra. The end result is a beautiful, moving performance that best captures the spirit of Christmas.  It’s absolutely breathtaking, and the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season.

The shows take place nightly in the American Gardens Theater in Epcot at 5:00 p.m, 6:45 p.m, and 8:15 p.m. 

The best way to guarantee a seat to one of the 3 nightly performances is with a Candlelight Processional Dining package, which can be booked at most of the table service restaurants inside Epcot. Included in this dining package is priority seating to one of the shows. Standby seats for the performances are available, but those with dining packages will be admitted before any standby guests are allowed in. 

You may use the Disney Dining Plan on the Candlelight Dining Package. It is 2 table service credits on the Plus Dining Plan and 2 meal credits on the Deluxe Dining Plan. You will need to give a credit card guarantee, at the time of booking. 

For those not on the dining plan, you can reserve this as well. A credit card guarantee will be required to create the reservation, with payment due when you dine. Out of pocket costs per meal vary, depending on the restaurant and the time of meal (lunch or dinner). We will update this post with prices as they are released. Tax and gratuity are not included and theme park admission is required.  



The time of the show you would like to see is going to decide your dining time-frame. If you’d like the 5:00 p.m. show, your reservation for dining will be between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. If you’d like the 6:45 p.m. show, your dining time frame will be between 3:30 and 4:15 p.m. If you’d like the 8:15 show, dining will be between 4:20 and 5:45 p.m.On December 7th, only the 6:45 and 8:15 shows will take place.


The dining package includes an appetizer, entrée, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverage (or one full buffet), per person. 

These are very popular reservations, and table will fill up quick! If you'd like to attend with the Dining Package, we definitely recommend making your reservations as soon as possible.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic décor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
