  • Is there a way to stream to my tv directly these live performances? I have Apple TV, roku, chromecast, etc but would like to know if anyone has and how to or what is the best way. Id like to do it live instead of having to press play from my computer and airdrop or cast it.

  • Loved watching it from the comfort of our home in Denton, Texas on a 82 inch smart TV. An excellent stream. Have seen it in person in years past.

  • Celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary with my wife, Erin and our two daughters in East Islip, NY. Our honeymoon was at the Polynesian Village Resort.

    • Congrats!

  • Love the Candlelight Processional, I’m from Long Island, New York. Seen it with Neil Patrick Harris & Woopi Goldberg! Both were great!

  • Longtime Disney fan and DVC member. I’ve been visiting WDW the first week in December for at least 10 years to celebrate my birthday. Unfortunately this year I couldn’t visit since I’m living in Australia at the moment. So glad I can still enjoy this holiday tradition. I’m virtually watching with my parents who are in Pennsylvania while I’m in Australia. Thank you Disney!

  • OMG this is awesome. I’m watching from California. I did my CP back in 2001 and watched this every night from the popcorn stand right in front of the theater (no longer there).

    • What a great holiday memory to have!

  • Warren pa

  • Hi from Chicago! I’ve never had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World at Christmas. I’m so excited to watch!

  • My husband & I are watching from Pennsylvania. We’ve never seen this live- perhaps next year 🙂

  • I’m in Cincinnati for work, so I am watching here. I have never seen it before. My daughter has seen it a few times. She and I will see Blair Underwood on 12/14.

    • We hope you have a great time. 🙂

  • I’m so excited to see this in it’s entirety!! We were fortunate to see a part of the Candlelight Procession 5 years ago!

  • I will be watching from Minnesota
    Last year my husband and I saw the Candlelight Processional Live. It was amazingly beautiful.

  • I loved singing in the Processional! Now that I don’t live in Florida I miss it every year.

  • Is there a way to view the live feed in YouTube? I am wondering so then I can watch tonight’s Candlelight Processional on my TV. So excited.

  • For 10 years I do the processional dinner package for the 8:00 pm show. This year I added another package, which was this past Saturday night. I can’t wait to watch tonight because it never gets old.

  • We have been attending the Candlelight Professional for years. We missed last years Candlelight Processional because my husband was critically ill in the hospital.. and now we will have a chance to experience it again by the live stream. Thank you for sharing this.

  • Thanks for making this available! Love the Disney Parks live streams; will be watching from WI!

  • My husband Ray and I will be watching from NJ. We have seen this in the past and it is great to get to see it on line when we can not be there. We were just there in Sept. for Halloween and Food & Wine! Love Disney!!!

  • I am so grateful for this lLIVE streaming. This is the first year I am unable to go.

  • Do we know who will be conducting? (Please say Dr. Sinclair!)

  • My brother is the biggest Disney fan in a family of Disneyphiles but he’s not a FB member. Is there some way for him to see this?

    • Our live stream series is hosted right here on the Disney Parks Blog, via YouTube. Bookmark this page and anyone will be able to view.

  • I’m so glad to hear there will be a replay! I’ll be commuting home from work during the livestream and will want to watch it later with my husband and daughter.

  • This is awesome. My hubs and I love the processional, but this year we can’t go due to my dad being in hospice care, so we can’t leave him home alone. Love that we can all watch it together one last time, from the comfort of home. Thank you, Disney!

    • We hope to give you a great show, Cynthia.

  • I will be in the audience for that show. Coming down from Pa. on Friday. It is an annual tradition to visit Disney during the Christmas season and the Candlelight Processional is one of the greatest events Disney provides for its guests. I am glad it will be blogged live, but I wish Disney would broadcast this outstanding program during the holidays on ABC. I believe the nationwide audience would love it.

  • How long will the replay be available for? How limited is a limited time? We see NPH every year, but we are also currently overseas.

  • I can’t wait. NPH always does a terrific job. Looking forward to a behind the scenes look as well!

    • We hope you enjoy it, Christine.

  • Please do an Illuminations:ROE livestream of the Holiday tag! I just saw it for the first time last week and it brought tears to my eyes. So beautiful!

  • I will be enjoying the Candlelight Processional for the first time with my family on this day! I was already excited to see NPH in person and this makes it even more special.

    • Have a great time, Jerry!

  • See everybody there! 🕯💖

  • This sounds wonderful but will this be available to view later in the day i.e on YouTube? I’m in the UK and the livestream will be in the middle of the night for me. ☹️

    • We will have the stream available for replay for a limited time.

  • Wow! I love the Candlelight Processional!
