2. Dinner Package Timing Disaster
The Candlelight Processional is a beloved Christmas tradition in my family. Enjoying the show as a part of a dining package in Epcot is our favorite way to see the show with reserved seating. As crowds and restaurant staffing would have it, we once experienced at three hour dinner at Rose & Crown prior to our Candlelight Processional show time. The food was delicious but the slow service put our family behind schedule. When we dashed over to the first come first seated reserved seating line we were much farther back in the theatre than we would have preferred or planned. Had our meal not lingered so long we would have entered the line earlier and been seated much closer to the stage. We enjoyed the show from a less than desirable seat and had to laugh when the show concluded and the family was exiting the theatre and my grandmother who is an avid country music fan said she was disappointed that the narrator for the evening, Trace Atkins had not performed any of his hit songs.
