Candlelight Processional at EPCOT is a fan-favorite event for Guests celebrating the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort. With celebrity narrators and talented Cast Member choirs, live orchestras, and performances by EPCOT’s a cappella group, the Voices of Liberty, this is one Christmas event you do not want to miss.
Purchasing a dining package is the easiest way to enjoy Candlelight Processional as it ensures you a seat during the event. (You may score seats without a dining package, but you’ll need to line up early, and if it is a busy day in the park and you aren’t early enough you may be out of luck. You can still see Candlelight Processional from outside of the theater thankfully, but if a seat is a must, dining packages are the easiest way to see the show.)
Dining packages come at an extra charge at participating restaurants in exchange for advance seating for Candlelight Processional. The restaurants that were originally offered for this year’s Candlelight Processional dining packages have already sold out, so Disney is now adding the option of same-day dining packages and reservations at an EPCOT quick service location.
To score a same day package, head to Spice Road Table and check for availability directly with the restaurant. (Spice Road Table is also a delicious and highly underrated restaurant!) And for quick service packages, stop by the Regal Eagle in the American Adventure pavilion to confirm their availability.
Candlelight Processional will be performed throughout the holiday season in EPCOT, specifically running November 26-December 30 at 5:15 pm, 7 pm, and 8:30 pm.
In previous years, portions of the show’s choir have been made up by students from schools from around the country, however this year’s choir will be made up entirely of Walt Disney World Cast Members selected through an annual audition process. This is the only COVID-19 modification to the show, and we are thrilled to see this holiday tradition back at EPCOT for the holiday season!
