Dining at the Event

The best way to enjoy Candlelight Processional is by purchasing a dining package to go along with your theme park tickets. With a dining package, you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious meal at one of Epcot’s restaurants before the show. Available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, each meal provides an appetizer, entrée, and dessert or one full buffet (where applicable), along with a non-alcoholic beverage. Afterwards, you’ll be guaranteed a seat for the Processional as well as access to a special viewing area for IllumiNations. If you choose not to purchase the dining package, I recommend you arrive early for the event, as it is extremely popular and heavily attended.
