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.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The décor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
