    When are the dates for the Candlelight Procession this year? Thank you!

    Merry Greetings, Mark!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for jingling all the way here with your question. Mark, Disneyland Resort at the holidays is truly magical indeed. I was there last December and few things are as jolly good as when Disney and the holidays come together. Disneyland transforms into the merriest place on earth for sure!

    Mark, I double-checked with a Cast Member in Disneyland Guest Services, and I don't mean to be a Grinch, but the dates have not yet been released for the Candlelight Processional this year.  Surely, Mickey is making his list of planning details and still checking it twice before he shares it with us, but I am wishing upon a star it will be released soon. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as often this is the first place it will be announced.  The Cast Member noted that it is typically the first weekend of December, but it can change without notice so I don't want to be on your naughty list and give you incorrect information.  So I recommend checking the Disney Parks Blog or the Disneyland website, or you can stop back here to ask us again at any time.

    Here's a little treat for you, Mark. When you visit, be sure and check out Disney Festival of the Holidays. This is one of my favorite experiences at Disneyland this time of year because I love learning about holidays celebrated around the world and throughout the season. 

    I wish I had more information to share, Mark. But I hope I was able to help you a bit. If you have any additional questions, stop back here and we will welcome you with warm hugs and help you out.

    Magically Yours,
