    Yet another Candlelight trip report 12/2-12/3

    Well I arrived Saturday at 3:30 to camp out a spot in front of the Main st. bank.

    Here's some pre show shotsabout an hour before showtime.





    Some Cub Scouts lined up for the flag ceremony.



    The Color guard marching to the flag pole.



    A half hour til showtime everyone started arriving.



    Like a scene out of "The Birds",they converged on Town Square



    Mr. Hector Elizondo,did an excellent job.




    On Sunday I ate at Hook's Pointe.I didn't have my camera,and forgot to take pics of the food with my cellphone.I had the chicken which was good and the lobster roll for the appetizer.My son joined me for dinner he got the regular menu and ordered the stake.He didn't quite finish it so I ate the last few bites.It was only about 6 oz,but he was still full.I split my chocolate cake with him,enough sugar to put you in a coma.After a quick trip to M&F to get my camera off to the main gate for the show.I got a good spot 3rd row left of center stage.apparently all diners where in the front silver section.I assumed we would be in the back 40.I think they should ad the snow at the end while the choir is recessing and the orchestra is playing Sleigh Ride.

    A shot from 3rd row pre show Sunday 8pm.



    The christmas tree choir.


    Mr. Andy Garcia also did an excellent performance on Sunday.He got a few shout outs from some female fans that embarrassed him.


    More choir shots




    The featured male solo vocalist they didn't announce his name.



    Then with the conductor.


    Then came the finale,and the fanfare trumpeters.I think they are also the toy soldiers in the parade.

    i love it. I think it looks better at DL because it's not so spread out. We do get many more showings in florida and the theater is huge but someday I would like to see the original version.

    It is really so much better. There's nothing like the traditional Disney Candlelight Procession in Town Square. It's really the perfect setting.

    At Walt Disney World they used to do their Candlelight exactly the same way...with the procession from the Magic Kingdom's Cinderella Castle to the concert location in Town Square. I saw a couple there and they were just great. Especially the one year Walter Cronkite narrated. He did a great job!

    So get your rear to Anaheim so that you can see a real Candlelight Procession as it was originally intended...from the Castle to Town Square!

    Great pictures! I saw the 8pm show on Sunday, my first time at Candlelight.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.
