Be sure to secure your spot at the show early to avoid disappointment.

We will have more details here on the DIS as they are released.

Candlelight Processional Dining Packages will be available to reserve starting October 6. With a dining package, guests can enjoy a leisurely meal at a select EPCOT restaurant and guaranteed seating at one of the performances later that same day. Reservations can be made via the My Disney Experience app or at
