Default Candlelight Processional Early Booking for DVC Members

Early booking for DVC members will be July 2, 2019 for the Candlelight Processional dinner package. Yeah!

Is there any better time or day to go to this? ( there are 3 times to go starting at 5:00p). Any better day of the week to go? We will be in the world 12/8 thru 12/15.

I prefer the later times when its sure to be dark. Plus if you do the dining package dinner you will have plenty of time to eat and get there. I'd also assume weekends are busier due to locals coming in for it too. Each narrator only does a couple nights so check and see which narrator you prefer.

As I remember, many times the narrators are not identified until long after the reservation is needed. We have been lucky. We have had Gary Sinese, Edward James Olmos among others.

If you're not too picky about where & when you eat, you can generally get the narrator you want. They have expanded the available reservations to more venues and meals, so I was recently able to get a reservation to see Jodi Benson pretty much at the last minute.

Do we have to call MS to reserve? Will there be online availability? What time does the window open?

Thanks.

Have to call MS. I would assume 9am eastern time as that is when MS opens.

Passholders get the early booking date, too and are supposed to call Dining. Dining phone lines open at 7AM Eastern. MS doesn't open until 9 AM Eastern

Online booking opens at 6 AM Eastern for ADRs, so if we can do that on July 2 and the website "don't crash", that should give us a choice of anything available for CP.

So I am confused. If I book an ADR and it is one of the CP dining venues, do I automatically get to keep that ADR when purchasing CP dining package?
