Celebration, FL Hosts Candlelight Processional to Raise Money for Disney Cast Members

Are you missing EPCOT’s beloved Candlelight Processional at Walt Disney World this year? We aren’t the only ones! While us Disney fans are missing the retelling of the Christmas story through storytelling and stunning music, Disney Cast Members that performed in the beautiful tradition were also missing their opportunity to shine. Well, Celebration, Florida stepped up and provided a stage to benefit these talented Cast Members!


As shared by 12DaysOfChristmasCelebration: “One of the most beloved traditions of the Christmas season at Disney is the Candlelight Processional.  Since 1958 at Disneyland and the opening of Walt Disney World in 1971, hundreds of Disney Cast Members made up the choir that was headlined by visiting celebrities. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Candlelight Processional is cancelled for the first time ever. In addition, the pandemic has forced Disney to lay-off or furlough a large number of Disney Cast Members. The entertainment community of Disney Cast Members has been hit especially  hard. To bring some cheer to these hard hit Cast Members and the local communities, the Community Presbyterian Church in Celebration has organized a social distancing event that will surround the church property with the voices from the past Candlelight Processionals.  Donations are encouraged as we help these talented people weather through these difficult times.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
