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. 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 is always a heavily attended Epcot attraction.
