    Here she is folks...and already some are disillusioned that its only for APers and only by sweepstakes. No dining packages.

    Thoughts?

      I wonder if chairs will be in very short supply leaving more standing room?

        Idk how this works, the only year I went was one of the unfortunate years when it wasn't a processional, but was held on risers in the Fantasyland theatre...and I don't remember who the "celebrity" was, but they were drunk.

            Walt started Candlelight in 1958 and seating was limited to his guests. Pretty much like it is now.

                Another Disney idea put in place without benefit of having an actual plan.

                  So wait the processional is only for APs and only by sweepstakes? Or is this only for the Free AP seats and you can still buy seats?

                  This is so lame whatever it is.
                  In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

                    Seats are by Disney's choice, which appears to be limited to guests and the AP lottery. You cannot buy seats, however, the standing room and benches are still available to all, first come first serve.

                      Interesting that so many people say that the AP program brings noting good to the park, and that it can't be that beneficial to the bottom line of the park, but more and more Disney is handing out more perks and finding more ways to squeeze even more out of those "useless" AP's.... seems to me if they didn't find value in the program they wouldn't keep coming up with more stuff "just" for the AP's.

                        OH! Thanks for clarifying. I originally thought that the ceremony was not available at all to regular, non-AP guests. But is it something that a day guest can experience, or does one have to pay extra for the separate admission after regular hours. I'm so confused! :blush:

                          It happens in the evening when regular guests will be around. The question really is will AP get all the good viewing, or will the regular guests on the fringe get into some better viewing spots.

                            Nope, I'm staying away from Disneyland those dates. A nice proud tradition has died.
                            I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                              Thats a good question, and one we may not find out an answer to until the first night or two that isn't a "private" event.

                              I also find it interesting that the lions share of the comments on the blog itself are generally negative. And even more interesting, since all comments are moderated, that those not so sunny and happy comments are actually being allowed to see the light of day.

                                I noticed that as well...it will be interesting to see how/if they respond to those comments.

                                  Seems it was bad mistake to announce "dinner packages" and then cancel!
                                  I am a Annual Pass Holder and I'm better than you! lol! :ap:

                                    Agreed.

                                    I am curious as to how the lottery works when you plan to attend w/ family and friends? The winner gets his seat plus one? Two? Four? I am hoping for a + one situation since I really don't even want to see the whole thing (it is the SO).

                                    So far I haven't seen on the page, what days the lottery will be divided up into. Guess I'll just check back on Nov 12th.

                                      I got this email to...I'll do the sweepstakes.

                                      Actually, I owe alot of neat experience from winning two AP sweepstakes. One was to ride Nemo on the soft opening (at which time I determined I would never ride it again since I was claustrophic in that sub, but I got to experience it) and the other was riding Star Wars 3D when it soft opened. I enjoyed both experiences.

                                      I will enter this sweepstakes and see what happens. I've enjoyed the times I have gone to CP and wouldn't mind going to another.

                                      Ta Da!

                                        My comment on the parks blog was not allowed through, which is interesting since I *really* censored myself since quite frankly I'm angry. I booked flight and hotel due to the officially released information that I could purchase a dining package even if I missed out on free seats with my AP. I will try to focus on the other things I'll get to do, but it's really upsetting.
