    It was disappointing when I didn’t win seats in the Candlelight lottery, but probably not as disappointing if I won then the show was canceled. Great update!

    Candlelight was incredible…the weather cleared!! Kurt Russell was very good as narrator. Orchestra and choir (huge choir) along with bell ringers and trumpeter heralds on top of the train station provided great music, with Russell’s narration of the Christmas Story the total package was inspiring and uplifting.

    Crowd control was basically 1 one way.. enter next to the Disney Gallery and exit next to City Hall. Lots of Castmembers directing crowd control. I am sure putting on 2 performances a night for 20 straight nights is going to be a challenge for everyone..

    But all of their efforts are very much appreciated as Candlelight is a great experience.

    Even rain can’t stop all the fun at the parks. We have had some really great times on rainy days there. I love the snow white cottage gingerbread house. One more special thing about holidays at the park.
