One of the most popular holiday events at Walt Disney World is the Candlelight Processional. It’s an annual event that takes place in Epcot. In the American Gardens Theatre, each night a celebrity guest narrates the story of Jesus being born in Bethlehem. The narrator is accompanied by a mass choir, Voices of Liberty and a 50-piece orchestra. There are three shows a night, taking place at 5 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8:15 p.m., except on Dec. 7 when the 5 p.m. show will not be taking place.

Seating is first-come, first-serve so lines can get very long for those wanting to watch this amazing show. There is only one way to get reserved seating, purchase the Candlelight Processional Dinner Package. The package guarantees a seat at one of the three performances.

The dining package includes a 3-course meal or buffet. It’s available for lunch or dinner, depending on the restaurants hours. Restaurants participating this year include: Biergarten Restaurant, Coral Reef Restaurant, The Garden Grill, La Hacienda de San Angel, Les Chef de France, Nine Dragons Restaurant, Restaurant Marrakesh, Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room, San Angel Inn Restaurante, Teppan Edo, Tokyo Dining, Tutto Italia Ristorante and Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria.

Disney Dining Plan credits can be redeemed for the Candlelight Processional Dinner Package. However, it does take two credits and you’ll need to give a credit card guarantee at time of booking. Guests can book online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.
