A Disneyland tradition that dates back to 1958, the Candlelight Ceremony and Processional is performed under the stars on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park every year during the Christmas holiday season.
This 45-minute holiday spectacular is a musical retelling of the story of “The First Christmas” through song and scripture, and features a mass choir as the centerpiece of the show. The Disneyland® Symphony Orchestra, fanfare trumpets, hand bell ringers and a guest celebrity narrator will join the choir in this joyous holiday tradition. The Candlelight Ceremony has featured a host of outstanding celebrity narrators in the past, including James Earl Jones, Cary Grant, Mickey Rooney, Marie Osmond, Dick Van Dyke, Jon Voight and Gary Sinise just to name just a few.
This holiday season, the Candlelight Ceremony will be performed under the stars on Main Street, U.S.A., on Saturday, December 5 and Sunday, December 6, with two performances each night. Disneyland’s 2015 Candlelight Processional will be narrated on Saturday, December 5 by actress Geena Davis, and on Sunday, December 6 by Once Upon a Time actress Lana Parrilla. Ceramonies start at 5:30 and 7:45, with the performers stepping off 10 min before near “it’s a small world”.
