Hello all,

  Thought some of you might be interested.  I placed a couple Candlelight clips on my website in the holiday section.  They show an ok comparison between the way Disneyland used to do the show, how it has the past several years, and how Walt Disney World handles it now a days.  

*Note: The rumor is Disneyland will go back to Main Street this year.. all we can hope for is its a permanent move..

It hasn't been officially announced yet, but the unofficial dates for Disneyland's Candlelight Processional are December 6 and 7, 2003. The reason why there are rumors that it will return to where it started years ago (in Town Square at the foot of Main Street U.S.A.) is because the Fantasyland Theater (near it's a small world, where it has been held lately) will be undergoing renovation.

Hello,

  I can confirm that the candlelight is December 6 & 7 @ 5.15pm both nights..  I talked to a high school choir director who has been invited.    Also now the Disneyland website lists it.


No confirmation on the narrator yet.  A lot of rumors flying around.

A Holiday Tradition - Disneyland® 'Candlelight' Procession Returns to Main Street, U.S.A., December 6 and 7; Louis Gossett Jr. to Narrate

Reserved Seating Available to Guests Dining at Selected Resort Restaurants


The Disneyland "Candlelight" Procession and Ceremony, a holiday tradition for more than 40 years, will return to its historic setting on Main Street, U.S.A., Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7. The move follows several years of "Candlelight" presentations in the Fantasyland Theatre.

The return to the Main Street setting will make "Candlelight" viewing available to more Disneyland guests. The experience includes narration of the traditional Christmas story with a full orchestra and the candlelit procession through Disneyland by a choral ensemble. The ensemble is composed of more than 700 singers including Disneyland cast members and more than 30 different choirs from the greater Southern California area and from communities as far away as Las Vegas, Modesto, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Oscar- and Emmy-winning actor Louis Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman, Roots) will appear as "Candlelight" narrator this year. Performances will be 5:30 and 8 p.m. each day, December 6 and 7.

Interested guests can get reserved seating for "Candlelight" (park admission not included) by dining at selected Disneyland Resort restaurants on the day of the presentation. Participating restaurants include Hook's Pointe at the Disneyland Hotel, Storytellers Cafe at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel® (minimum spending of $40 per adult, $15 per child age 3-9); Granville's Steak House at the Disneyland Hotel, Yamabuki at Disney's Paradise Pier® Hotel (minimum spending of $50 per adult, $15 per child); Napa Rose at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel or The Vineyard Room in the Golden Vine Winery at Disney's California Adventure™ (minimum spending of $75 per adult, $20 per child).

"Candlelight" has been presented at Disneyland every holiday season since 1958. Past celebrity narrators have included, among many others, Cary Grant, James Earl Jones, Gregory Peck, Olympia Dukakis, Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, John Wayne and James Stewart.

It's a whole new world of magic at the Disneyland Resort, featuring two theme parks, an entertainment district and three hotels. All within walking distance are: Walt Disney's original theme park, Disneyland, "The Happiest Place on Earth"; Disney's California Adventure, Disney fun with a whole new attitude; Downtown Disney® District, a public esplanade of dining, family entertainment and shopping; the luxurious 745-room Disney's Grand Californian Hotel; the 502-room Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel; and the 990-room Disneyland Hotel. For general information call (714) 781-4565 or visit http://www.disneyland.com. For additional information on "Candlelight" dining packages, call Disney Dining at (714) 781-DINE (781-3463).
