It seems hard to believe, but in just a few days, Walt Disney World will begin to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season. Festive decorations will adorn all corners of the Resort, delicious themed food and drink will fill bellies, and fun Christmas music will be piped in and Guests can sing along and join in on the merriment. It is truly a magical time of year.
One of the more popular events that takes place at Disney World during the holidays is the Candlelight Processional — which is held at EPCOT. The Candlelight Processional retells the biblical story of Christmas with a celebrity narrator and a choir of amazing singers. This year’s Candlelight Processional will take place on select nights beginning on November 26 until December 30.
Disney has now released the complete list of celebrity narrators, which includes stars of the popular Disney films Moana and The Little Mermaid. Disney Parks Blog shared more details on the popular seasonal event.
Of course, we love to cap off a day of holiday fun at EPCOT with a performance of the “Candlelight Processional” at America Gardens Theatre. This year, the incomparable Voices of Liberty will form a living Christmas tree at center stage, flanked on either side by a choir of Disney cast members pouring their hearts into every song. And there’s nothing quite like having those songs played by a full orchestra and hearing the traditional Christmas story told by a celebrity narrator. The lineup of narrators for 2021 includes award-winning actors, singers, and television hosts … and two Disney princesses!
