Candlelight Processional: package or no package

Has anyone made the decision whether or not to get a package for the processional? (Or do you have any good processional stories to tell?)

Here's info from last year and the narrators for this year:




2010 Beach Club Resort
2005 Port Orleans Riverside
2006 Animal Kingdom Lodge
2007 Wilderness Lodge
2008 Animal Kingdom Lodge
2009 CBR/Polynesian

We've done both (package and no package). If you're strapped for time, get the package. You have to eat, after all, and this guarantees you a meal and gives you a better shot at a decent seat.

If you've got some time to kill, consider getting in line early for the first show, then bring a book to read or take turns holding the spot in line.

I've seen it so crowded that the stand-by line didn't entirely get in and I've seen it so tame that everyone got in with no problem. You never know what's going to happen. I DO suggest the early show if you don't have a reservation, however; nobody likes a candlelight processional when it's still light out, so people choose the later shows.

I've done the package exclusively, and was always really glad to do it. With my luck the night I went without a package it would rain and there would be no room left in the seats under the roof!

Besides, as a former musician I like to watch the orchestra, so being close-up is best. Smile

I've only done the packages, but I've really enjoyed them.
