Every year, the Candlelight Processional takes place in Epcot, where rich sounds of a full orchestra and choir fill the America Gardens Theatre, including a special guest narrator. Listen along while the story of the babe in a manger touches your heart as it has for generations—accompanied by warm and inspiring holiday music.
The Candlelight Processional returns for 2015, and will be available in Epcot from November 27 – December 30, 2015.
While admission to the Candlelight Processional is free, long lines do form, and admission is not guaranteed. One great way to get guaranteed admission, and a great seat, is the Candlelight Processional Dining Packages, which are now available to book.
With the dining packages, you can enjoy guaranteed seating for this holiday tradition, as well as a delicious meal at an Epcot restaurant with Candlelight Processional Dining Packages – starting $35 for lunch and $50 for dinner for adults (plus tax and gratuity). Packages include an appetizer, entrée, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage per person (or one full buffet where applicable) plus access to a reserved section at one of the Candlelight Processional performances.
The dining packages are available at most Epcot restaurants, including Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room, Coral Reef Restaurant, Biergarten Restaurant, The Garden Grill Restaurant, Nine Dragons Restaurant, Restaurant Marrakesh, Spice Road Table, San Angel Inn Restaurante, Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria, Les Chefs de France, Tokyo Dining, Teppan Edo, Tutto Italia Ristorante and La Hacienda de San Angel (dinner only). Prices vary at each restaurant, and all restaurants feature a lower price for children 3 – 9. If you are interested in doing breakfast, the Garden Grill Restaurant will also be serving a breakfast option included in the package. Prices are listed below.
Please note, you must book a Candlelight Processional Package at these restaurants in order to get the fixed price and Candlelight Processional tickets, if you book just a dining reservation, you will not receive these additions.
