Hours don't seem to be posted on the disneyland.com site yet, but it's over holiday vacation, so it will probably be 8a - midnight. And yes, it will be very crowded during that time.

I used to live in Anaheim, and can tell you it does get very crowded during Christmas.  Usually after Christmas is worse.  We used to like going on Christmas eve.. The decorations are great.

I don't think I've ever been over thanksgiving. The first week in Dec will be good for low crowds.  Things are usually decorated before thanksgiving.  I think the candlelight processional doesn't start until afte thanksgiving.  I love disneyland at christmas.  It's always so pretty..

We are going to WDW over thanksgiving week.  I'm expecting crowdes, so I think it'll be fun.

We are annual passholders, but I never have heard about the Candlight Spectacular at Disneyland... What is it? At what time does it start?

Candlelight Ceremony

Celebrate with this ceremony, which has been a Disneyland® Park tradition for over 45 years, featuring a 600-member choir accompanied by the Disneyland® Orchestra, along with a celebrity Guest Narrator who will retell the story of "The First Christmas" in a powerful tapestry of narrative and music. This year, Guests can experience the Disneyland® Resort's Candlelight Ceremony in a whole new light. For an extra special treat, ring in the holiday season with a Candlelight Dinner Package, which includes a special dinner at one of five restaurants at the Resort, followed by premium seating of this year's Candlelight Ceremony.


TICKETS:
Access to view the ceremony is included with regular Theme Park admission. However, due to the popularity of the event, arriving at the area in advance is highly recommended.
