We have a good bit of holiday cheer for you. Disneyland WILL hold its Candlelight Processional this year, which has bee a holiday tradition in the park since 1958. While there are no specifics just yet, the event will be held on December 4th and 5th in Town Square at Disneyland in 2021.

Walt Disney World has also confirmed their event for this year from November 26th through December 30th but will be conducting it a bit differently this year with an expanded Disney employee choir and no guest choirs.  We suspect that Disneyland will follow a similar example since all Disney Company employees must now be vaccinated.
