Candlelight Processional Kicks Off This Evening at Epcot
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
