The annual production is always an extremely popular annual event and that means that you can expect really, really long lines. On nights with the most popular narrators such as Neil Patrick Harris and Whoopi Goldberg stand-by lines may start filling up as early as three hours in advance. If you would like to be assured of seating for a particular showing of Disney's Candlelight Processional, you need to book a Candlelight Dining Package. The package includes that includes a meal and seating at a Candlelight Processional performance. It's worth noting though that you will still need to line up at least an hour in advance if you would like to get a "good seat."

The Candlelight Processional Dining Packages are available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each meal includes an appetizer, entree and dessert or one full buffet (where applicable), along with a non-alcoholic beverage. Pricing for the package can vary depending on which restaurant and meal you chose, going ranging $40 for breakfast at the Yacht Club's Ale & Compass to $85 for dinner at the Japan Pavilion's Teppan Edo.
