  • [Rumor] Candlelight 2013 Returns to Normal

    Hello All,

    My high school alumni choir director received a note from The Disneyland Candlelight team earlier today. Check it out:

    Disneyland Candlelight Ceremony and Processional 2013

    The Candlelight Processional has been a Disneyland tradition since 1958, bringing holiday magic to Main Street, U.S.A., with the help of celebrities like Cary Grant, John Wayne, Dick Van Dyke, Gary Sinise, Kurt Russell and James Earl Jones. The Candlelight mass choir is the centerpiece of this holiday season highlight, and we would like to let your choir know about this year's spectacular celebration!

    For the 2013 Holiday season the Candlelight Processional will be performed in its traditional schedule of 2 nights at Disneyland Park, with two performances each night. Candlelight will be performed Saturday and Sunday, December 7 and 8, 2013.

    Specific instructions about how to apply and audition for this special opportunity will be posted at DisneylandEvents.com in August. We will send out another email to let you know when that information is on line.

    We hope you have a great summer break and look forward to hearing your groups audition material later this year.

    Warm Regards,

    Your Candlelight Team


    So to me this confirms a return to the traditional schedule. When our director called Lori Cook, Candlelight Contact, she said there was a new upper-level management group. Also, according to this contact, the park apparently lost money from lack of Main Street revenue during the 20 days of Candlelight last year.

    Just wanted to share,

    Geren

    Thanks good to know. We watched it for free a couple of years ago. The music was wonderful. Hoping to take our kids the week after Thanksgiving this year and see it.

            Forgive my ignorance, but I don't think I understand why less showings is a good thing? Isn't it better to have more so more people can see it?

              I think one of the complaints was that it was basically shutting down Main Street due to the crowds, and there was less general access for viewing.

                Lame, my old HS choir invited me to sing with them if they got in next year. Those alleys can't come soon enough!!!

                  Saw it once, I think I'm good for a couple of years. It was cool seeing John Stamos, though. I wonder who is going to be reading this year if there are only four performances.

                    That's great news. But I'll believe it when there's an official Disney press release about the return to normalcy.
                    I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                        Confirmed with my little sister who is in a choir that went last year. They also got notice about the amount of nights the show will be held.

                            The people who want to see it have no problem seeing it. Hubby and I have seen it every year for about 8 years and we always get a good spot for free cuz we know the drill.

                              Perhaps it works better as a "limited time" event since even on the night of Dick Van Dyke (truly a legend if there ever was one) there was plenty of room to walk up and get a very good viewing position at the last minute or even during the show.

                              And, come to think of it, I was in the Emporium during the second show (it was pretty cool to be casually browsing in a store and hear Dick Van Dyke in the distance) and it was empty. Repeat that twice a day for more than an hour each time and you're looking at a fair amount of lost revenue for such a high-traffic area, I suppose.
