Disneyland officials have confirmed to the OC Register that they’re canceling the 2020 Candlelight Processional that takes place annually at the resort.

Per the publication, the resort was unable commit to the months-long planning process required to hold the event due to the uncertainty regarding when the state of California will allow them to open the resort and theme parks and resume operations. This becomes the second holiday event cancelled, as the Oogie Boogie Bash was cancelled early last month.
