3. EPCOT’s Candlelight Processional

The Candlelight Processional at EPCOT is part of the International Festival of the Holidays. The processional takes place outside at the American Gardens Theater across the promenade from the American Adventure Pavilion. There is a retelling of the birth of Christ by celebrity narrators, and a choir and 50-piece orchestra accompany the retelling. Some celebrities in the past include the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, Whoopi Goldberg, Contemporary Christian artist Jaci Velasquez and others. This year, celebrities like Pat Sajak and Gary Sinise and others will narrate the Christmas story. The 2018 Candlelight Processional begins Thanksgiving evening and continues through December 30.
