Candlelight Processional is just one of my favored vacation experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort. Commemorating its 60th wedding anniversary in 2018, the very first Candlelight Processional debuted on Main Street in Disneyland as one of Walt’s most-loved vacation occasions in the park. Today you can experience it on your own on both shores, with checking out choirs, cast participant choral vocalists, the Voices of Liberty, an online band, and also a various celeb storyteller every number of days. (You can learn more regarding the background of Candlelight Processional in my post in the Winter 2018 concern of Attractions Magazine).
Obtaining an excellent seat for Candlelight Processional (with the storyteller you’re wanting to see) is seriously, specifically as it obtains closer to Christmas. Right here are some suggestions to guarantee you’re able to maximize your Candlelight experience. (And if you can not make it to Epcot this year, you can view a replay of Candlelight Processional with Neil Patrick Harris by means of the Disney Parks Blog below.)
Examine the storytellers beforehand
Each Candlelight Processional includes the tale of Christmas reviewed from the Bible with a celeb storyteller separated by choral efficiencies. The only component of the program that modifications everyday is the storyteller, so if you’re established on a seeing a particular one make sure to inspect the days for every star beforehand. Some like Neil Patrick Harris and also Whoopi Goldberg return annually (normally around the very same time of the month) however others alter each period. Discover a listing of storytellers straight from Disney right here.
Get here early
Whether you reserve the Candlelight Processional Dining Package (as well as much more on that particular soon!) showing up very early is actually what is mosting likely to guarantee you obtain an excellent seat. Obtaining the plan with your supper appointment in Epcot assists due to the fact that you’re allow right into the seating location prior to standby visitors, yet you’re still mosting likely to locate on your own straight with various other visitors that additionally bought the plan. No matter exactly how you’re entering the program, it’s valuable to get here regarding a hr approximately very early if you truly wish to see to it you have an excellent seat. (You’re ensured a seat with the supper plan, however seats near the front can go fast if you’re in the rear of the line!).
Schedule an eating plan
If I’m intending on participating in Candlelight Processional, specifically if I intend to make certain I’m there for a specific storyteller I constantly reserve the eating plan. The plan basically contributes to the expense of your normal eating experience for very early accessibility to the seating location. Rates differs with the least pricey choice being a morning meal buffet at Ale & & Compass (for $38/adult) at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort as well as the most costly alternative of $80/adult for La Hacienda de San Angel in Mexico. The majority of dining establishments with the plan run regarding $50-60/ grown-up. See full prices information right here.
If you’re on a budget plan, opt for morning meal at Ale & & Compass. This is likewise a wonderful choice if you’re not intending on investing the early morning in Epcot, due to the fact that you can have a very early morning meal at the hotel and also avoid to whichever park you please up until it’s time for Candlelight Processional. For in-park eating, I can not advise Via Napoli sufficient. The cost is reasonable of what I ‘d generally wind up investing there with the upcharge for the program, and also if you’re intending on supper you’ll just be one structure far from the program.
Something to keep in mind regarding the Candlelight Processional Dining Package instead of various other comparable offerings around the Walt Disney World Resort– while you are “ensured” a seat for the program, eating bundle visitors do not have a scheduled area (like at Fantasmic). This suggests you can not turn up minutes prior to it’s readied to start as well as walk over to a scheduled seats location. Rather, eating plan visitors are enabled right into the cinema prior to standby visitors, so make sure to get here very early no matter.

Do not bother with being spiritual (or otherwise)
Unless you’re simply repelled by the tale of Christmas, do not tension if you’re not a spiritual individual. (I’m never, as well as having actually undergone years of Catholic institution I’ve definitely heard this tale a lot more times than I like– yet it’s truly great!). While the program does concentrate around the Christmas tale, it’s not comparable to a mass. It’s clearly a relocating spiritual experience for those that exercise, yet I locate that it’s similarly as breathtaking if you do not. The tale offers context to the vacation and also some understanding right into preferred Christmas tracks, yet it’s not such as remaining in church in itself as well as you will not really feel out of area if you do not “take part” (the just interactive component of the program actually is if you pick to sing a long, and also it’s entirely great if you do not!).
