I know summer just started, but what better time to plan a vacation for the holidays at Disney World than now! Candlelight Processional Dining Packages go on sale July 10 for Annual Passholders and on Wednesday July 11 for the general public.
The Candlelight Processional is part of the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays and one of the most beloved events at Walt Disney World. This year’s event starts early than ever on Thanksgiving Day, November 22. The Candlelight Processional presents the traditional story of Christmas with a 50-piece orchestra, a massed choir and a celebrity narrator. The processional is performed three times per night (5:00, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m.) during the holiday season at the America Gardens Theatre in Epcot.
Also available, on select days and evenings, is the Candlelight Processional Dining Package which include a delectable meal and a guaranteed seat for one of the Candlelight Processional performances.
A couple of the celebrity narrators have already been confirmed, including actress/host Whoopi Goldberg, entertainer Pat Sajak, actors Neil Patrick Harris, Chita Rivera, Gary Sinise, Blair Underwood and Edward James Olmos, and Jodi Benson, who voices Ariel in Disney’s animated classic “The Little Mermaid.”
