Full Lineup of Candlelight Processional Narrators Announced, “JOYFUL!” and Storytellers Returning for the 2021 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays
This year’s EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will feature plenty of entertainment. Not only have we learned the full lineup of Candlelight Processional celebrity narrators, the inspiring music of “JOYFUL! A Celebration of the Season,” and the storytellers around World Showcase will also be returning for 2021!
This year, “JOYFUL! A Celebration of the Season” will return on the Showcase Plaza Stage.
Venturing into World Showcase, there’s a wealth of holiday storytellers, musical acts, and other performers to discover, from the Canadian Holiday Voyageurs and their musical memories across the Great White North to the Chinese Lion Dance, Italy’s La Befana, France’s Père Noël and more. And from Nov. 26 – Dec. 24, Santa Claus pays a visit to The American Adventure, where you can step right up and let him know your fondest wish for Christmas.
Of course, there’s the “Candlelight Processional” at America Gardens Theatre. This year, the incomparable Voices of Liberty will form a living Christmas tree at center stage, flanked on either side by a choir of Disney cast members pouring their hearts into every song, accompanied by a full orchestra and the traditional Christmas story told by a celebrity narrator.
