Entrance to the Candlelight Processional is on a first-come-first-served basis but you can get a guaranteed seat towards the front of the theatre by purchasing a Candlelight Processional Dining Package.

Each year as part of Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays, Epcot run the Candlelight Processional which is a musical performance by a mass choir and a 50-piece orchestra retelling the Christmas story with the help of a special celebrity guest narrator.

The performances run three times a night at the American Gardens Theatre at 5:15 p.m., 7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and in 2022 it takes place from November 25 every day until after Christmas on December 30.


You can purchase a Candlelight Processional Dining Package which includes either lunch or dinner plus guaranteed seating for one of the Candlelight Processional performances.

Prices vary by chosen meal and restaurant.

The meal can be taken either before or after the performance on the same day, depending upon timing. You can collect your processional seating badge from your chosen restaurant and if dining after the show, make sure to pick up your badge from the restaurant at least 15 minutes before show time.
