How do you see EPCOT's Candlelight Processional?
Want to ensure you have a seat for the performance? Our recommendation is the Candlelight Processional Dining Package. Choose from seven distinctive eateries, offering everything from character dining at Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Harvest Feast at Garden Grill Restaurant in The Land pavilion to signature dining at Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada pavilion. With breakfast, lunch and dinner options, there’s something for everyone.
The other option is to make sure that you line up early enough to get a seat. For more popular narrators you may need to get in line (or have someone in your group go in line) up to 2 hours prior to show time. Cast members can assist with where to go.
