    Hello, Is there any announcements of Disneyland having the Candlelight Processional? I see Disneyworld has their dates announced. I have always wanted to see the choir and hear it is a very beautiful Program? Thanks Cheryl

    Hi, Gregory!

    I hope you’re getting excited for your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! There is something extra magical about exploring the theme parks during the holiday season.

    The Candlelight Processional has been a Disneyland Park tradition ever since the first one in 1958. Although no official announcements have been made public yet, this event will likely be held on the first weekend in December. However, in the past, the Candlelight Processional at Disneyland Park has had seating for invited Guests only. There are typically no dining packages, ticket sign-ups or standby lines for park Guests to officially attend. Those who wait in Town Square can get a good view of the show, but this often involves staying in the same spot all day and may not be how you’d want to spend your time in the theme park. If you’re interested in getting a glimpse of the Candlelight Processional, but not camping out for a spot, the choir usually comes down the Main Street, U.S.A. parade route on their way to the stage. Guests who line the curb shortly before the event begins can enjoy a small but lovely part of this unique experience.

    If you’re not able to catch the Candlelight Processional, don’t fret! Both theme parks will have lots of festive decor, attractions, food and entertainment to help you get in the holiday spirit. At Disneyland Park, highlights include A Christmas Fantasy Parade and the “Believe...In Holiday Magic” Fireworks Spectacular. After the fireworks, snow falls in the skies as a special seasonal treat! At Disney California Adventure Park, you’ll want to experience Disney Festival of Holidays and the special seasonal decor and attractions in Cars Land. I hope this helps, Gregory. Please write back with any other questions you can dream of as your trip draws near!

    Wishing you magic,
