Candlelight Processional Dining Packages Open October 17

Booking a dining package is one way to guarantee a seat for the show, but you'll still have to line up well over an hour before showtime if you want a great seat. 

Choose from seven EPCOT restaurants for the Candlelight Processional Dining Package, including: 
  • Akershus, 
  • Biergarten, 
  • Coral Reef, 
  • Garden Grill, 
  • Le Cellier, 
  • Rose & Crown and 
  • Spice Road Table. 
Walk-up dining package are also available day of the show at the Regal Eagle Smokehouse, but they are very limited and tend to sell out quickly.

If you plan to buy a dining package, there are a few important things that you need to know. We share our best tips in this week’s episode to save you a few unexpected surprises.

Santa is Back at the Odyssey Pavilion

Santa Claus will once again greet guests at the Odyssey pavilion from November 24 through December 24. 

Holiday Kitchens and the Cookie Stroll are also Back

Over 15 Holiday Kitchens will tempt you with dishes that celebrate global holiday cheer. 

The Holiday Cookie Stroll is back. Buy five cookies from any of the cookie stroll locations and get the matching stamp in your festival passport. Once you have five stamps, bring the stamped passport to the Holiday Sweet & Treats Holiday Kitchen and get a free cookie. The stroll runs through December 30.

Olaf’s Holiday Tradition Expedition Scavenger Hunt

The Olaf Holiday Traditions Expedition Scavenger Hunt is a fun way to explore World Showcase. Buy your map and stickers from a festival merchandise kiosk and discover the “tradition” that Olaf found in each pavilion. Whether or not you complete the quest, you can redeem your map at Creations Shop, Disney Traders or World Traveler at International Gateway for a special holiday keepsake (valid until December 30).
