Some Candlelight Processional History

Every year, Disneyland and Walt Disney World hold a special Winter narrated and musical holiday event called the Candlelight Processional. On December 20, 1958, the first Candlelight Processional was held at Disneyland. Even with all the ‘Disneyized Holiday decorations, parades, shows, etc, the processional was a way to highlight the more traditional aspects of Christmas.

Normally, there are two presentations for two nights at Disneyland. It was tried as a special event in a separate enclosed area at Disneyland, but then it was decided to hold the event on Main Street. It is a ticketed event with seats roped off only for the Candlelight Processional, but you may be able to catch a peek at the event if you are visiting Disneyland.

Many great choirs are chosen to participate in this great event singing Holiday songs as well as traditional Christmas carols.

For a long time, I felt that Once Upon a Time never got that much attention from the Disney parks, but it’s nice that some of the OUAT cast were chosen to participate in this event.

Have a great holiday season!
