  • Do standard dining discounts apply? I’m disappointed that the Disney web site doesn’t let me choose the show time I want. Each restaurant and dining time seems to default to a particular show time.

  • Rikki have you heard any scuttlebutt on when the rest of the narrators will be announced? I’m so sad, normally NPH is there for the earlier Candlelight Processionals. I’ve seen him twice and he does a Fantastic job!

    • Unfortunately, I have not heard anything about additional narrators. Usually they come out slowly. I’ll make sure and let everyone know when they are released.
