BREAKING: Candlelight Processional Returning to EPCOT This Year
As we previously reported it likely would, Candlelight Processional will be returning to EPCOT from November 26 through December 30 as part of the International Festival of the Holidays.
“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.
Since all these performers – including cast members, musicians, singers, and narrators – will be required to be fully vaccinated, this year Disney is not planning to host choirs from different community groups and schools. Instead, to maintain the grandeur of the performance, they are expanding the cast member choir to fill the stage with voices.
The schedule of celebrity narrators and dining packages will be announced soon.
