Not to mention the 50th castle decor would have almost certainly stopped the dream lights from being put on.
I'm very concerned they are using this (pandemic/50th) as a way to wean us off of them.
Like almost all entertainment now, there is only really one reason why it isn't happening, and that isn't anything to do with distancing or concerns of COVID.No mention of Candlelight...is it gone forever, or just suspended again? Seems to be no reason for them not to be able to have it this year. Distancing is clearly no longer a concern.
I know it all comes back to staffing, but most of the people involved in that event were either contracted out for the event (the orchestra), or Equity performers, and the VoL have already returned to work. Maybe they didn't feel ready to bring the high school choirs back yet?Like almost all entertainment now, there is only really one reason why it isn't happening, and that isn't anything to do with distancing or concerns of COVID.
I would be surprised if it is gone forever. It sells a huge amount of dining and is a necessary draw for a struggling park.
Wonder if that is just an error that it has been left there. I really think that would have been a significant mention in the details released today if it was happening.The EPCOT Holiday page has been updated with the dates and currently still lists the Candlelight Processional.
Yet another year of missed opportunities at DHS.
Art Carney and Bea Arthur look a likes, with Malla, Lumpy, and Itchy.
You're leaving money on the table Bob Chapek.
While I think they're a great Christmas season experience, I don't really think they need to do them anymore, at least not physically. The projection mapping has gotten so good that they can now re-create the same visuals and even add more effects now. I think they may try and go this route for the future, which will save them the cost of labor and renting a big crane for several weeks before and after the season. Not to mention, if they go virtual (projection mapped), it will save Guest Relations the negative comments that they get from guests when the crane is raised.
