    What are the dates of the 2021 candlelight processional??

    Hi, Geena!

    Welcome, and thanks for stopping by planDisney with your Disneyland Resort question. The Candlelight Processional has been a Disneyland Park tradition ever since the first one was held in 1958! No official announcements have been made about whether this special event will return this year. However, in the past, the Candlelight Processional at Disneyland Park was often held on the first weekend in December and 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 view of the show, but this often involves staying in the same spot for several hours.

    If you’re not able to catch a glimpse of the Candlelight Processional, don’t worry! Both of the Disneyland Resort theme parks will have lots of holiday-themed decor, attractions, food and entertainment from November 12, 2021 to January 9, 2022 to help you get in the holiday spirit. At Disneyland Park, highlights will include Haunted Mansion Holiday, A Christmas Fantasy Parade, and the “Believe...In Holiday Magic” Fireworks Spectacular. After the fireworks, snow will fall in the skies above portions of the park as a special seasonal treat! At Disney California Adventure Park, don’t miss Disney Festival of Holidays and the holiday decor and attractions in Cars Land.

    I hope this information helps, Geena. Please write back with any other questions you can dream of!

    Wishing you magic,
