    Early December Crowds and 2007 Candlelight Processional

    Hi! I am planning a trip for December. What are the crowds like during the first 2 weeks of December? Does anyone know when the 2007 Candlelight Processional is? Thanks!

    Don't know the offical dates of the candlelight, but it's usually around the end of the first week in december, so it should land on sat and sun dec 8 and 9.

    unless you plan to be very patient with crowds on main street, I would avoid these two nights, because traffic on main street will be just as bad as those so cal freeways! They will be strict on one way traffic areas (ie, one sidewalk of main st will be incoming traffic and the other will be outflow traffic)
    Went to a party the other night
    All the ladies were treating me right
    Moving my feet to the disco beat
    How in the world could I keep my seat
    All of a sudden I began to change
    I was on the dance floor acting strange
    Flapping my arms I began to cluck
    Look at me..I'm the disco duck

    After thanksgiving and before the holidays (winter break, Christmas, New Years, etc) are the slowest days of the year.

    Yeah, early December is my favorite time of the year to go. No crowds, holiday decorations, it's great.

    Re: Early December Crowds and 2007 Candlelight Processional

    I was wondering about the processional too, I tried to get tickets last year, but DL's website kept crashing from the load i.e digged/slashdoted. I have pictures of it from the 60's that I got in a book in the 90's at Disneyland, and those images have made such an impression in my mind, I want to go experience it for my self.

    Candlelight Processional will be the 1st and 2nd of December.

    There is an issue about the CM Holiday parties, as Hanukkah is on Wednesday, which might require a date change for the event.

    If you get a chance to attend, then do it because it's something that you have to experience!! If your not going avoid those days because it's as bad as a summer weekend, crowd wise!!

    Thanks! When are the Cast Member parties? I know on those days that Disneyland closes early like at 6pm.

    The Christmas stuff, at least most of it, should be up through January 6th.

    As for the CM parties, more than likely December 3rd and 4th, though they might move the 4th to the week of the 10th due to Hanukkah, nothing official has been announced.

    Last year, my sis and I were driving home from our Grandmothers and decide to make a night visit to Dland. It was the best night trip ever. We arrived JUST as the processional started and got great spots to view. We also got to ride everything through. That was on Dec. 3rd.

    Wait, the candlelight processional costs extra? Like separate tickets?

    How soon do I need to get those because we are going the same time the OP is asking about? Thank you. We have never been there at that time.

    If you want the priority seating, I believe you need to buy a CP and Dinner package. Otherwise, you can just arrive at about midday and wait until the evening event. The crowds were forming very early when Dick Van Dyke hosted it in 2005, so I'd imagine you'd have to arrive at a similar time to be up close and personal.

    Re: Early December Crowds and 2007 Candlelight Processional

    Hi!

    I emailed the Guest Relations (?) people from the DL website, and was told that this year it would be on the 2nd and 3rd of December.

    I wrote back saying that this was a Sunday and Monday, were they sure? And I got back a reply saying "This year the Candlelight Processional will be held on December 2 and 3".

    Would they really do this on a Sunday/Monday, or did Guest Relations tell me the wrong thing twice?
