  • Saw the candelight procession a few years ago. It is totally amazing and beautiful. The Late Cheta Rivera was the narator that year. Absolutely a don’t miss if you are in the parks during that time.

  • I saw the candlelight processional last year with the still very much alive Chita Rivera. She seemed to be enjoying herself very much and I am glad that I saw the show with her as the narrator.

  • For the last few years, the candlelight processional has “kicked-off” our Christmas season. We can’t wait to see it again this year. It is the event we most recommend to people when we recommend Disney events.

  • Chita Rivera is not dead!

  • Does anyone know who the famous guests will be for Disneyland in California???

  • Can’t wait to see the event on my birthday Nov 28th. Taking my som and husband to disney for the first time. I can’t wait to share this with them and kick off our week and christmas season in such a special way….my son and I have started the countdown already.

  • With no more Super Soap Weekend…I am so happy Susan Lucci will be the narrator when we are in the World.

  • We will be there 12/15 to the 22nd. Is there an easy way to see it with 3 kiddos (5-8 years old)? I really want to see it, but if there is a lot of waiting I don’t think I’ll get much out of it. Thx,Kelly

  • when will the Candlelight procession be held at Disneyland? Who will be the special guests?
