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, entrĂ©e, 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.

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
