Candlelight Processional Returns November 26 at EPCOT!
The Candlelight Processional will return November 26 at EPCOT as part of the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays!
“Candlelight Processional” dates back to 1958 at Disneyland park and Walt Disney World guests have enjoyed the annual tradition since 1971, initially at Magic Kingdom Park and since 1994 at EPCOT.
Unfortunately, last year's holiday season did not include the Candlelight Processional due to social distancing guidelines but it will once again grace the America Gardens Theatre this year with a live orchestra, cast choir, and celebrity narrator retelling the traditional Christmas story.
Disney World has released an update regarding the visiting choirs that normally perform: "Since all these performers – including cast members, musicians, singers, and narrators – will be required to be fully vaccinated, this year we are not planning to host choirs from different community groups and schools. Instead, to maintain the grandeur of the performance, we are expanding our cast member choir to fill the stage with voices. We’re optimistic that the guest choirs will be able to rejoin us next year for this special holiday opportunity."
Disney is still working to confirm the schedule of celebrity narrators and details about “Candlelight Processional” Dining Packages, so stay tuned!
