Candlelight #tips- How to see the show without a show ticket- Note: these are only tips and advice, meaning that you are not guaranteed a viewing spot. After working Candlelight this weekend, here are some tips I can offer...First, there are two large standing areas where guests can see the show. One is by the Emporium/Fire Station area (west side) and the other is in front of the Mad Hatter/Disn  More...

I didn't watch the performance (waiting until Sat.) but found myself several times on Main St during the show. BBM is correct...know where you want to go as the sidewalks on Main St are one-way. There is a cross-over area at the Market Place corner. And since the stores are open you can double back through them to avoid the one-way on the street. But the only doors open are those at the corners. - Gia  802.0 #238 12:33PM

Thanks for the info, Kevin. I do want to point out that the Opera House and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln will not be reopening after Candlelight performances when the park closes at 9pm. It will reopen after the performances on nights the park closes at 10pm and 12am. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2580.0 #58 11:34AM
Oh, and Jungle Cruise will/should run as normal with the exception of shooting the guns in the hippo pool. I have also heard they will be turning off the sound and animation with the dancing and attacking natives. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2580.0 #58 11:41AM
Can you really hear the jungle cruise over there? I Didnt know that. - phillip...  1362.1 #136 12:13PM
Yup, especially when it's quiet on Main Street. You can hear the gunshots from Opera House and if you're over by City Hall you can hear the animation. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2580.0 #58 12:16PM
I wish they stopped shooting during flag retreat, it's always bothered me - Sarafina  491.7 #452 3:34PM
And some skippers may or may not scream at the sight of silent dancing head hunters. - JungleBum  1017.0 #192 7:38PM
Just to add on: the processional will work slightly differently this year than in years past. Instead of taking the traditional route from its a small world down to the train station the choirs this year will process from the gate near the corn dog cart down Main Street. - lostgirl7988  697.8 #292 1:06PM
They did this last year as well. A great spot to watch them walk up Main Street is Coaster (Coke) Corner! - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4484.9 #32 3:38PM
We did the shortened precessional for the second show last year due to the threat of rain. Normally the processin runs the entire parade route. I'm kinda glad I don't have to waddle all that way lol - lostgirl7988  697.8 #292 3:52PM
You just answered my biggest question. I was worried that it would be scaled down and they wouldn't do the processional since they increased the nights. I'm glad they're still doing the processional! It always gives me goosebumps! - brigeet  604.3 #351 8:47PM

As of what I saw today, AP holders who have the 5:30 show can line up as early as 3:30ish. My CM friends were working and greeting the entrance and said that AP holders have a choice to which side of the stage they want to sit on and will line up by the respected tunnel by the main entrance. - BaseballMickey  7892.8 #11 9:31PM
