  1. Have booked dining for the Candlelite Procession at Garden Grove for 4 of us. Like being able to know that we have a seat without waiting hours. I thought the choices for dining was limited. Years ago some to the hotels were included in the list (Ale and Compass). Didn’t mind paying so much for that.
