Candlelght Processinal walk up

What are my chances of getting in by way of the stand by line on Dec 2. I want to try for one of the early shows. Andy Garcia is narrating. Anyone with experience trying this in past years?

I was able to get a free walk up seat the other year with no problem.
The theater wasn't even half full, wasn't planning on seeing the show but as I walked by cast members were like, come on in have a seat.

Here is why this worked, it was 30 degrees out, a freak cold storm in December. I had on long wool coat, hat and gloves. Guess no one showed up because of the weather.

I was also able to get my picture with santa at AA and i was the only one there also.

So if it's really cold out you should have no problem..

Generally I wouldn't recommend it unless you really don't care if you don't get in.

Would the first show be less crowded, if any?

First show could possibly be the most crowded.Here's what I would say,if you get in line for the first show and are near the front,or at least somewhere in the middle,there's a chance you could get in to the first show.If you get in line for the first show and are nowhere near even the middle of the line,don't expect to get in to the first one,maybe the second show.

Do they sell enough CP dinner packages to fill the theater for all show times?

No, not all the time. That's why they have a stand by line.

For the first show on Dec 2, no one will be able to get in (it's for media only).
