We did the Candlelight Processional and it seems better on paper than it was in person. Looking at the descriptions, we thought it would be great too, but with 3 squirming kids, it seemed to go on forever! (and eventually we had to leave early). I would not recommend it with a toddler (unless he's really well behaved) December is such a wonderful time to go! Definitely try to go to some of the resorts (especially the Grand Floridian with that enormous gingerbread house!) and just walk around (maybe on your way to dinner!). It is well worth it!
