        I'd like more details about whether you can buy tickets, etc. etc. Because I am not sitting ALL day to see it. I will buy a ticket for priority seating, if that's an option.

          Candlelight is an invitation only event. In the past few years they've experimented with dining packages, but they haven't made any announcements about them yet this year, so they might or might not happen.

            I know a CM and they said you can just take a place on Main Street and watch it that night. ??? Are they misinformed? And, who invites you? ha!

              Sorry that thread is by invitation only, costs $10K in membership dues and the waiting list is 15 years long. Oh no, that's Club 33, sorry!

              For the link to the thread you only have to know the secret handshake.

                Last year the event was on Main Street, and there was standing room
                available, if you were there early enough. They did experiment
                with having it in the Fantasyland theater a couple of years, so you did
                need entry tickets for that .

                BUT saying the Candlelight Service is invitation ONLY, is misleading.

                Last year was the 1st time I saw it, and it was beautifully done.
                Very worthwhile to see. Even if you are in the standing viewing area.

                  Caveat: They hold flashlights that look like candles, not real lit candles, which to me made it a lot less magical. I understand the fire marshall doesn't want hundreds of teenage choirists burning wax candles, but it didn't occur to me they'd be fake until I saw the show.

                    I have written down in my calendar that the Candlelight Processional is December 1 and 2, 2007 -- but I'm not sure if that was just based on the fact that the past five years it's always been the first week of December, or if that was actually announced somewhere. Because of the castmember parties later in the month, it's usually the first weekend of the month, however, so consider that at least an educated guess.

                        It's totally free and anyone can watch, as long as you are willing to either 1.) stand on Main Street for the whole show, not to mention wait several hours beforehand or 2.) do a dinner package to obtain the privilege of sitting in a chair. So for the second option, the show is still free but you are committed to buying dinner in exchange for priority seating.
                        A signature should go here.

                          Sorry if my first post was misleading, I only meant that the reserved seating was by invitation only. You can certainly choose to stand on Main St. for a few hours beforehand if you wish, I was simply responding to I Heart Disneyland's post about buying a ticket and not wanting to camp out all day for it.

                          Yes, the dates of Dec. 1 & 2 are confirmed, and no, there is no info on if they're doing the dining packages again this year.

                            Information on how to reserve seats for the 2007 Candlelight Processional

                            The 2007 Candlelight Processional will be held on Saturday, December 1st and Sunday, December 2nd.

                            The narrator this year will be Jane Seymour.

                            And here is the basic info on ordering a Candlelight Processional package, which comes with a meal and a reserved seat to one of the 4 performances. (The menu is pretty much a selected menu, with of course multiple dietary options) Alcoholic beverages are not included in the price.

                            http://mb./MsgBoard-T-91374-P-1.asp


                            Tickets go on sale on Monday, November 19 beginning at 10 a.m. Pacific Time

                            The web site is Tickets.com

                            Very briefly, the price points are:

                            An AP exclusive at Napa Rose for $125 per person

                            Others:

                            Steakhouse 55, Vineyard Room and Yamabuki for $100 per person

                            Storytellers and Hook's Point $75 per person.
                            I presume there will be a ticket surcharge added.

                            These packages go VERY quickly, so if you want a reserved seat, you need to be ready to order on the 19th. I would register an account at Tickets.com in advance, and be ready to go at 10 AM exactly on the 19th.

                                  Thanks Darkbeer. I'll be parked in front of my computer on the 19th. I can only do Sunday, so I'm crossing my fingers now.

                                      The Candlelight Processional is an unofficial park event, it has been around for years, and was originally designed for park sponsors and special friends of Walt Disney and Disneyland. It is the story of Jesus using a large choir, made up of a bunch of choirs from schools and churches, along with a group of CM's who volunteer and practice on their own time. Once all the invited guests were seated, then they allowed the general public to fill in the area.

                                      It has changed slightly, but pretty much the same thing, Disney has a group of seats that are made available for folks Disney wants to invite, and now a few hundred seats are made available thru the dining packages. But there is also a bunch of obstructed view seats and standing view areas available on a first come basis at no extra cost.

                                      There is nothing printed on the Times guide about this event, though they do move the Parades to earlier in the day, so they can set up the area for the event.

                                      Here are some photos from a prior event.
