We are already getting excited about holiday happenings at Walt Disney World. Over at Epcot the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays presented by Advent Health is scheduled to kick off starting on November 29th and will run through December 30th, 2019. There will be a lot of great entertainment and offerings during the event, including Candlelight Processional!

Disney Parks Blog confirmed two additional hosts scheduled to narrate Candlelight Processional. The first is film and television actress, director and wildlife conservationist Isabella Rossellini, who will narrate from December 8th through 10th. Another will be actress, author, activist and Oscar winner Marlee Matlin, who will narrate from December 27th through 28th. Ming-Na-Wen, actress and voice of Mulan, will also join the narrator cast for November 29th through December 1st.

There will also be 13 Holiday Kitchens offered during the festival plus other food and beverage locations where guests can enjoy seasonal offerings. According to Disney Parks Blog, ” Your holiday tasting journey might begin with Slow-Roasted Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans and Cranberry Sauce at the American Holiday Table. Between the Morocco and France pavilions, you’ll find the new Smoked Salmon Potato Latkes at the L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen(where the Pastrami on Rye with House-made Pickles and Deli Mustard is a returning favorite). Then discover other new bites including Canadian Wild Rice and Ham Soup with Pretzel Roll at the Yukon Holiday Kitchen, which also brings back its popular Seared Verlasso Salmon with Crown Maple Whisky Glaze, Parsnip Silk, Apple Chutney and Hazelnut Croquant.”

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
