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.
