Candlelight Processional Returns to EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays This Year

It’s difficult even putting into words how excited I am for the news that just popped up on Disney Parks Blog

Candlelight Processional is coming back this year!!! It will be back as a part of the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, running from November 26 – December 30. 

As Disney Parks Blog recounts, “Candlelight Processional is a long-standing Disney Parks tradition, dating back to 1958 at Disneyland park. Walt Disney World guests have enjoyed the annual “Candlelight Processional” since 1971, initially at Magic Kingdom Park and since 1994 at EPCOT. After being greatly missed during last year’s holiday season, this magnificent production will once again grace the America Gardens Theatre with a live orchestra, cast choir, and celebrity narrator retelling the traditional Christmas story in spectacular and heartwarming fashion.”

All performers – including cast members, musicians, singers, and narrators – will be required to be fully vaccinated. As such, and not surprisingly, Disney is not planning to host choirs from different community groups and schools this year – planning instead to expand their cast member choir to fill the stage with voices. I’m sure this is exciting news for cast members hoping to join the choir this year!! And Disney assures us that they are optimistic that the guest choirs will be able to rejoin them next year.  

Disney is still working to confirm the schedule of celebrity narrators and other details about Candlelight Processional Dining Packages but promises to keep us posted as more information is available.

Who is your favorite Candlelight Processional Narrator??
