Candlelight Processional with younger kids

by Jennifer


We are traveling with our 4 year old twin boys who are not the greatest at sitting still for very long. Is going to the Candlelight Processional with younger kids a good idea?

How long is the program?


Dad’s Squirmy Answer


Thanks for stopping by and for your question. I wish I had a better answer for you.

Unless your boys (and it doesn’t sound like it) love classical music, you will probably want to wait until they are a little older to take them to the Candlelight Processional.

We went there with our 4 year old nephew, and it was not a pretty site. He didn’t sit still (and his parents didn’t try to make him). It was distracting for all that sat close to him.

The problem is not just the length of the show (about 35 minutes), it’s the 45 minute wait in line followed by the 30 minutes sitting in the theater waiting for the show to start.

Dad’s not a big fan of going to the Candlelight Processional with younger kids.

Dad, being Dadlike and helpful, would like to offer you a way to enjoy a GREAT evening and the Candlelight Processional.

Reserve a Candlelight Processional Dinner Package at your favorite EPCOT restaurant for 2. (Yes, I said for 2.) Check with your resort for babysitting options (or, even better, try to get a reservation at Neverland Club in the Polynesian). Have a night out without the kids.

Yes, I know, it’s almost criminal to suggest that parents have fun while the kids stay with a sitter, but you’d do the same thing at home. Live it up.

It might be to late too get this done this year depending on when you are going. But if you can…
