Yeah, I agree with you on lottery thing. Lottery winner should be able to bring whomever they want
It's a bummer......but if I win 2 seats I bet I make a lot of friends.....lol!!

Julie Andrews isn't scheduled to be there with Dick Van Dyke.....we were talking how cool it would be if they were!! Marlee Matlin would have been a great one to see!!! Did you enjoy seeing it at WDW??

So if an AP holder wins the lottery and requested 4 seats, they have to bring 3 other AP holders? Really restrictive. This whole Candlelight Processional thing has been a big mess in how they handled it. They should have waited a year until the theater in fantasyland was finished, giving them lots of seats and holding pens for standby lines, etc. Seems like someone got greedy.

All members that attend the CP (the seats) had to have a valid AP by Nov 12. Very restricted!

I agree......this really should have been put off until they had a place to hold this that wouldn't affect moving in and out of the park with out fear of been stepped on! Holding it on the weekends would have been a better way to test the waters and logistics.....instead of going all out for 20 nights. I'm actually in fear of what the parks are going to look like in the evenings!!

Do you think your daughter's gonna freak out when she finds out she isn't going to her concert??

So let's see.......coming in the 14th.....that's Friday......so we'll have to find 5 minutes to meet up!! We're doing a late dinner Friday at the Jazz Kitchen, then just hanging out on Saturday. This would probably be the easiest day for me to meet you. The family will lunch at Earl of Sandwich and dinner at Tortilla Jo's. Let me know, as you would be giving up a couple minutes of your day. Like I said, our Saturday is unstructured or planned other than meals. (and I have an AP if I need to run into one of the parks to catch you)
She might be disappointed at first, but we will already be in California when she finds out so I think it will be okay. My DH is getting his Masters degree in California and that is why the trip was scheduled in the first place. We had told the kids that we did not know if DL was possible this trip, but maybe we could go to Downtown Disney for dinner one night as we did not want them all excited for another trip only to have to cancel again. The trip was two full weeks but has been modified so much that I am glad we have not talked about it with them. Won't they be surprised when we actually enter Disneyland and see the Christmas magic.

I was excited about the Candlelight processional at first, but with the kids I'm not sure they would enjoy it. It is a tradition in our house to read the story in front of the fireplace while drinking hot cocoa. My kids are not really into the "stars" per say and my oldest asked me why I thought she would want to see a star read a story that she is perfectly capable of reading for herself? So after that I figured it was not that important .

Our Saturday is totally unscheduled as I promised myself and family that we would just go with the flow and take things as they come. I have one sit down meal per day Sunday thru Wednesday. I'm sure we can work something out.

Sounds good......We'll figure something out when we get closer!

I think adults would be bigger fans of the CP, but kids would enjoy it. I don't think the twins would be thrilled with this.....but the music might keep them interested. But there's no way they could do the standing room only. So just not sure what to think of the adding nights to the CP. I was excited at first, but they way it was handled or maybe I should say mishandled, I'm not really looking forward to it running every night.

The performers line up on the stairs up to the Main Street Station (train station). So entering or leaving from the front gates will be an ordeal. I plan on being in the park early enough to avoid Main Street and enjoy the rest of the park. The times I noticed when filling out the lottery page was 2 shows per night: 5:30 and 7:30pm (I didn't notice if that was every night like that or maybe just weekdays).

Otherwise, take the monorail out of DTD to get into DL or out of DL. You'll probably be faster walking thru DTD to DCA if wanting to get out of DL during those performances.

Thank you for the info. I will just try to avoid being on Main Street during those times. I think many people will either hop to DCA or try to see the CP so maybe the lines will be shorter during these times. Well here's hoping.
