    We have reservations for a candlelight processional dinner package this December. I know that last year, the dining package included reserved seating for Illuminations too. Do this year's packages include Illuminations seating? If so, where?

    Hi there, James.

    The Candlelight Processional Dining Packages are, on some nights, the only way to get a seat at the incredibly popular Candlelight Processional. Held evenings during the holiday season at Epcot, on the nights that are closer to Christmas, near Thanksgiving, or with a very popular narrator, it can be virtually impossible to get a seat if you are in the standby line.

    The Candlelight Processional Dining Packages have not included reserved seating for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth for the past several years, and I have not heard that the package will include it this year. However, there is usually pretty great viewing available, even if you are at the last show. We find we can leave the theater and slip right in around the World Showcase fence and have a great view, even at the last minute. 

    Take some time and enjoy the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays while you are there for your show. It's just wonderful to hear the storytellers from each country and check out the holiday kitchens. What better way to learn to appreciate another culture than by sharing in their holiday traditions?

    Have a wonderful time, James.
