Welcome Back to the Disneyland Resort!
The 2012 Candlelight Ceremony and Processional performances began this past weekend. Out of the four performances Saturday – Sunday only one wasn’t effected by the wet weather, leaving the second on Saturday and the two on Sunday canceled.
Saturday and Sunday night’s performances were invitation only events, with the first of the Annual Passholder contest nights being tonight. The winners of the contest were notified this past week via email and were given their date, time and instructions. We have all of those details for you here.
|Candlelight Ceremony & Processional|
The Main Street Train Station is operational, however all of the Disneyland Railroad will close at 4 pm each night of a Candlelight performance.

US Marines will be on hand again on Dec 8th at the main stage in Downtown Disney. Each person donating a toy on that day between 12p and 5p will receive a free $5 ESPN Zone game card.
Disneyland has expanded the ID requirement of guests using 4 and 5 day passports to all muli-day passports. Any guest entering either park with any multi-day passport must show their ID at any of the turnstiles.
That’s going to do it for this week’s update. You can see the past updates here.
