    Circarama's mini Candlelight trip report

    We went to Candlelight on Saturday for the 5:30 show. Here is my mini report.

    Tigerlily and I bought the Napa Rose dining package which turned out to be a very nice meal. After dinner, we were given some very nice wine glasses etched with the Candlight artwork. Sweeeeeet!



    We then walked over to Disneyland, and upon entering, we were directed to a special line for ticket holders. The CM looked at our tickets and said, "Silver seating? Please follow me."



    This was our first time to Candlight, and I didn't know what to expect. We go thru the tunnel and came out into Town Square. The CM starts walking us down the front row. She stops right in the middle and say's, "you may sit here if you like, or there are 2 seats together in the 2nd row, and there are a few more further back."

    I managed to stammer out that these 2 seats in the FRONT ROW CENTER would be just fine, thank you very much!

    Inside, I was turning cartwheels. Outside I was casually settling into my seat, hoping that somebody wasn't going to walk up and say, "I'm sorry sir, there seems to have been a mistake made, you are sitting waaaaaay over there."

    But nobody came along and said that.

    I saw Martha Blanding, the manager from Walt Disney Merchandise Event Services. We exchanged pleasantries which was nice. Afterwards, I saw Alice Davis, widow of Disney Legend Marc Davis. Not sure if Alice is a Disney Legend yet, but she should be... and she should also have a window on Main Street.

    But I digress...

    We enjoyed an amazing performance, Hector Elizondo was great, and can you believe this: I left my camera in a locker because, " I don't want to watch the show thru a viewfinder... and besides it's going to be too hard to see sitting behind all the people from Club 33." Ha-ha, I wish I has known.

    Oh well, we had a spectacular time. If you've never been, make the time to go next year. It's definitely worth seeing!!

    Re: Circarama's mini Candlelight trip report

    sweet! those were the same seats i had last year.

    tonight, i was also in silver section and had the pleasure of being greeted and hugged by the Ambassador (Andrea) and sat near Ron Dominguez, who i reminised with after the show. i also saw a few former bosses who have now climbed the ladder even further, as well as, some Disney Legends.

    Dinner was awesome at the Vineyard Room. not only was the food exquisite, but the service was top notch also.

    and the wind was not a factor for the show, but, sadly did force the cancelation of fireworks.

    i'll be back tonight to see them at 5:45, before going to the party afterwards.

    i'd better get to bed.

    glad you had a great time!!

    I'm pretty sure I saw you at GCH before dinner! My wife and I were sitting near the piano in the GCH lobby around 3:15pm and I'm pretty sure I saw you walk by (towards the bar, hehe). I was going to stop you but you looked right at me and I didn't register so I thought "hmmmmm, maybe that's not her", then I saw your son walking with his dad (I think) and I thought,"Yep, that was her". I shoulda said something...
    I hope you guys had a good time at the Park, sorry I didn't say hello.

    But I did say hello, and
    CONGRATULATIONS
    to you and SunnyGirl!!
    What a wonderful surprise to run into you and SunnyG near the Plaza Inn on Saturday,Anders! Hearing abouit your proposal in the Court of Angels in New Orleans Square sounded so sweet. I could really see how happy you two were on Saturday.

    My "bubble" isn't burst. I was surprised that anybody from the dining packages would have access to the front row. I assumed that patrons of Club 33 would have the front few rows saved for them.

    Yes, I was wondering also... if we were in Silver, and had great seats, where the heck was the Gold section?

    I don't think there was a gold section. Just silver, blue, red, and open (at least that's what I overheard from a GC Cast Member talking to another Guest). Of course there was the reserved VIP seating right behind the front center silver section as well.

    I ate at Yamabuki (really good!) and we were center section, fourth row from the front on the right facing the stage for the Sunday 8pm show.

    Bottom line though, I got to take my mom out for a very enjoyable evening (it cost me around $250 for it just for that night, so it better have been good) because she deserves it.
