So glad you enjoyed it! Given what Candlelight Processional is all about, is it so important who the narrator is and whether that person is "A list" or not? We try to focus on who the story is about, not who's reading the story. We were glad it was Lin Manuel Miranda, but would have been fine with some else, too. CP is a highlight of our DLR year and officially kicks off our Christmas season! Got my CP pin at the Music Shop on Main Street --it's a very cute one this year! Met some very nice APs while waiting. And thanks to the crowds shifting around, our spots actually had decent viewing. As a nice bonus, we happened to be right by the Little Red Wagon at 7:30 pm and got to see the choirs go by again on their way down Main Street. Lovely!It was lovely. We're so glad we did it.
wrote Hamilton. Wrote the music and sang in Moana.
For me, it was a Christmas wish that he would get to do it. He had been scheduled to do it last year, and had to bow out due to losing his voice.I guess it depends on who you are and what you are into whether you think Manuel is a "A" list celebrity or not.
Wow outside of Hamilton and Mary Poppins, I didn't realize he has done so much.For me, it was a Christmas wish that he would get to do it. He had been scheduled to do it last year, and had to bow out due to losing his voice.
He is most well known for Hamilton and In The Heights, and a little less for writing the music for Moana. And Jack in Mary Poppins. He also was the voice of Shag in the STar Wars: The Force Awakens. And he wrote the Cantina music for The Force Awakens. He is also working on music for Rise of Skywalker and working with Alan Menken for the new live action Little Mermaid music.
And I think he did a wonderful job.
I’m at DLP now (waiting for F!) - crowds have been pretty low today given the holiday season. It was way more packed last week!Any recent/updated crowd reports? Tomorrow is the last day for the Deluxe AP and Friday is the last day for Signature. How is that affecting the crowds now?
