I was just on the line with a Dining reservation Cast Member and asked about the packages. She said that she didn't have a date, but that they have to do a bit of training to familiarize themselves with the packages and they hadn't even received word about the training yet. So that doesn't tell us much but its not likely to be this week if that's the case. Just thought I would pass that on for what it's worth.

Very helpful, Pigletto, thank you! I'm at 189 days out currently, so hoping I'm at 180 before they release the packages. Looking at Dec 26 - 30. Has anyone seen Marlee Matlin before. Is she any good? I've seen NPH previously, and he was incredible!

Yes, I saw her before at CP and thought she did an excellent job! I assume you have heard her speak before?

We are hoping to get the package for the second showing on Nov 30th so it will be mostly dark but not too late for our 6 year old.

We will be paying OOP and not on DP - does anyone know, will I pay when I make the reservation or the day we go?

You pay at the restaurant. The CP is not pre-paid.

You can! It takes 2 credits per person though.

I read that when you buy the Candlelight package, you also get preferred viewing for Illuminations. Is this true? If so, how does it work?

How fast do the CP dinner packages book up? I have never been to WDW in the winter/christmas and I would so love to see the CP and have a great meal that day.
Do they open all dates at once like with the tomorrowland desert party or can you book at the 180 day mark?

Has anyone tried booking on line yet. The listing is there, but when I go in to make the actual reservation it will not let me pick a date.

The CP package is not available for booking yet.

I think for the more popular narrators, (Neil Patrick Harris for example) and the busier dates that the packages go quick. I would try to call the day they open.

That's the way it has worked for at least the past few years.

The viewing area is between the two gift shops at the end of the walkway between Future World and the World Showcase. A part of that area will be roped off and your CP badge will get you in.

narrator list

Is there a place I can look to see this years list of narrators and while I know I can't get the CP package yet has there been any notice as to what the date will be?
Thanks
