Actress Marlee Matlin Narrates Epcot's Candlelight Processional

It promises to be a star-studded celebration of Christmas at Walt Disney World, as Epcot begins celebrating the holiday this evening with its annual Candlelight Processional.

The hugely popular Christmas tradition features a celebrity narrator retelling the traditional story of Christmas.  Intermingled with favorite Christmas carols performed by a 50-piece orchestra and a mass choir, the celebration culminates in a live “Christmas tree” made up of the singers themselves.

If you enjoy classic celebrations of the Christmas season, then you will not want to miss out on this special celebration, which will be performed nightly at Epcot today through December 30, at 5, 6:45, and 8:15 p.m. most nights.  A list of the narrators includes:

Nov. 25-27: Mira Sorvino
Nov. 28-Dec. 1: Michael W. Smith
Dec. 2-3: Geena Davis
Dec. 4-6: Edward James Olmos (guest shows at 6:45 and 8:15 p.m. only)
Dec. 7-9: Isabella Rossellini
Dec. 10-12: Neil Patrick Harris
Dec. 13-15: Lorraine Bracco
Dec. 16-18: Chita Rivera
Dec. 19-21: Trace Adkins
Dec. 22-24: Susan Lucci
Dec. 25-27: Blair Underwood
Dec. 28-30: Marlee Matlin

The event fills up fast, so be sure to get in line early if you’d like seating for the performance (you can also view the entire show from a standing position behind the America Gardens Theatre.)  For guaranteed seating, be sure to check out Disney’s special Candlelight Processional Dining Package, which is available by calling 407 WDW DINE, or by visiting Disney’s website.

Merry Christmas!
