Candlelight Processional Dining Package Details:

It is HIGHLY recommended that, if you are planning on attending the Candlelight Processional, you should get a dining package, which ensures you a seat for the show. The stand-by lines are notoriously long and not everyone that waits in the line will get in, at times.

Participating Restaurants


Candlelight Processional Dining Packages range from $40 – $100 per adult and $23 – $51 for children ages 3-9. Pricing depends on restaurant.

That is all we know for now, as always, I will be updating and adding to this post as more info becomes available, so be sure to check back often.

I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
