Candlelight Processional

So, I just saw that Geena Davis is going to be at the Candlelight Processional the same time I am going to be there. Could someone clue me in on how to get seats for it? I've never done it before.

The Candlelight Processional is a non-ticket event. There are dinner/CP reservations that can be made. MANY people use this package. I have done it at San Angel (That doesn't sound right - Mexico) where we paid price fixed menu. I have also done Germany. The menu, being a buffet, is the same but there is an extra cost to the meal. Also, if you happen to have Tables in Wonderland it is not accepted for the CP package.

Assuming you do the dinner package, you are given a sticker/ticket. People get in line about an hour (maybe?) before the time of their ticket and wait for the "doors" to open. After ticket holders are admitted, the standby people are let in. I have been twice and both times all that did not have tickets got into the show.

We are going again this year. I travel with a friend. He doesn't think we should pay the extra for a dinner package. I do.

It all depends upon who the narrator is and how close to Christmas your dates fall as to whether the CP dining package is a necessity, in my opinion.

Two years ago the narrator was Whoopi Goldberg. We did the dining package and it was a good thing as well, there were throngs of people in the stand by line.

Niel Patrick Harris and Marlee Matlin also draw big crowds.

There are three pricing tiers for the dinner package depending on where you want to eat and how much you are looking to spend. The level of dining has nothing to do with where in the amphitheater you are seated, it is still general admission.

Have to line up at least an hour before with tix!

We bought the dining package and still had to line up outside for a full hour before being allowed to enter. We thought we would be in plenty of time, but the line was enormously long. It was definitely beautiful, but I think I would not spend the money on the dining package unless you really want to experience the food. I do agree that depending how close to Christmas you are going, you may need the tickets that come with the dining package. We were there when it was Rita Moreno, and I have to say she was incredible. It does book up pretty quickly, so if you wait your choices will dwindle in terms of where you can eat.

I'm with you -- go for the package if you really want to see CP. We went in early December in 2010 and 2011, and both times were scared off by the long stand-by lines. When we go in the future, I'm just going to avoid the stress and hassle and get the dinner package. It's a lot better to have a guaranteed seat then to end up craning your neck and jumping up and down in front of the American Adventure to catch a view!
