2014 Candlelight Processional Dining Packages


Candlelight Processional Narrators

In 2014, reserved IllumiNations viewing is not included in the Candlelight Processional dining packages.

The Candlelight Processional dining packages allow you to enjoy a meal at one of Epcot's restaurants, while guaranteeing you a seat for the show.  It's important to note that at times this is THE only way to get a seat.  Those with Dinner Packages are the first to be seated - those waiting in line (a.k.a. those who didn't buy the package) will be given the very few seats that remain.  If you're in Disney during the holidays this is a "Don't Miss" event. 

All dining is scheduled prior to the performance time chosen. 

  • Dining reservations for the 5:00pm show must be between 1:45 - 2:45pm.
  • Dining reservations for the 6:45pm show must be between 3:30 and 4:30pm.
  • Dining reservations for the 8:15pm show must be between 5:00 and 6:00pm.

Guests who have the Magic Your Way Dining Package or Deluxe Dining Package will use 2 table service entitlements and those holding the Premium or Platinum packages will use 1 meal entitlement regardless of which restaurant is chosen. This package includes choice of appetizer, entree, dessert, and non-alcoholic, non-specialty beverage OR 1 buffet.

To book the Candlelight Processional Dining package you can call 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463) or ask your Dreams Unlimited Travel Disney specialist to make your arrangements for you.

NOTE: The Candlelight Dining Package will be paid for at the individual restaurant where the preferred seating badge will then be distributed. You will receive your badges at the restaurant for guaranteed seating at the American Gardens Theater for the booked show time.
