When can I book a Candlelight Processional Dining Package in 2023?

When can I book a Candlelight Processional Dining Package in 2023?

Every year the Festival of the Holidays at Epcot includes several elements including the Candlelight Processional which has a dining package option.

Here’s info on the dining package, including when you can book it and if it’s worth it.

When can you book the Candlelight Processional Dining Package?

In 2022, you could book the dining packages on October 6, 2022. Booking for 2023 hasn’t opened or been announced yet, but we expect it to be around the same time.

There are some same-day dining packages available, so if you want to wait until you’re at Epcot to get one, that is an option at a couple of locations. Just be sure to get there early as there’s limited availability.

Are Candlelight Processional Dining Packages worth it?

Although you can watch the Candlelight Processional without a dining package, it is very popular so having a dining package can be very helpful in guaranteeing a seat at a specific show.

More popular narrators (like Neil Patrick Harris) can make it even more important to get a dining package since lines can be so long.

For people that don’t want to wait in line and/or are visiting with a popular narrator, dining packages are often worth it.
