    Hello! We I’ll be in Disneyland12/21-12/23. We heard that there is an excellent religious parade but it sells out ever year can we get tickets ahead of time?

    Happy Holidays, Susan! 

    Thanks for stopping by with your question and welcome to planDisney! 

    I'm so pleased you are planning to spend the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort this year! I believe the event you’re referring to is the Candlelight Ceremony at Disneyland Park. This event is typically held on the first weekend in December, for two nights only. You cannot purchase tickets and seating is only provided to invited Guests. However, you are welcome to attempt to secure a standing-room-only spot on Main Street U.S.A. If you'd like to try that next year, I suggest arriving to Disneyland Park right at park opening and camping out all day. 

    Even if you missed the Candlelight Ceremony weekend, there is still plenty to enjoy this holiday season! There’s A Christmas Fantasy Parade and “Believe…In Holiday Magic” Fireworks at Disneyland Park! And over at Disney California Adventure Park, Disney Festival of the Holidays will be in full swing. You’ll have the opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of cherished holidays and then feast on tasty treats from Marketplace Kiosks

    Enjoy the most magical time of the year at the Disneyland Resort
