Hi Dad,

Just wondered if the list of guest celebrities for the Candlelight Processional 2011 is available? This will help us decide which night to reserve for such a special experience Thanks!

Hi, how are things? Glad you're thinking ahead. The list of celebrities readers for the Candlelight Processional this year will be finalized around November 1. That's the usual date for the final list. Yes, don't blow a gasket. Most of them will be announced in early August.

Now you're saying, but Dad, you're encouraging me to make my dining reservations in June for my trip in December (hypothetically). Why, yes I am. But the Candlelight Processional Dinner Packages probably won't be available for booking until mid to late August.

What? Who came up with this crazy system? Why Disney did, of course. I don't know why the Candlelight Processional Dinner Packages aren't available at 180 days like the Advanced Dining Reservations, but that the way it happens. So we just deal with it.

So, do I need to make a reservation at the World Showcase restaurant I want to eat at prior to the packages being released? Nope, you just wait and on the day they are released (Disney usually gives 2 or 3 days warning), you make sure Dad knows what you want and he'll get you all set up.

If you want to get an idea of who will be reading when you're there, look at last years list. Most of the celebrities repeat and usually about the same time. Not all will, but a good percentage.

I know that muddied the waters a bit. If you have any more questions let me know.

Booking restaurants will definitely depend on the nights that the Candlelight Processional and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party are offered as that affects planning for everything else. I agree with Kat. Will the dining reservation cast members know when the best times are for bookings to maximize parades, fireworks and events when I book in June?

Nope, that's why you need a good Disney centric Travel Agent. Disney will tell you the times, but not really help with opinion.
