Walt Disney World Announces Candlelight Processional Narrators for Select Dates During 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays

Summer is here, but we are already looking ahead to the holiday season at all of the fun and festive offerings that are coming to Walt Disney World.  Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is set to return from November 29th through December 30th, 2019.  During this event guests will get to enjoy different holiday entertainment and offerings at each of the 11 World Showcase pavilions.  The Candlelight Processional is an extremely popular holiday offering at the America Gardens Theatre each year.  This event combines a live orchestra, massed choir and a celebrity narrator to tell the traditional Christmas story.  We already have a look at the lineup for some of the celebrities that will be narrating this year below:

  • Whoopi Goldberg: 12/6-12/7
  • Pat Sajak: 12/16-12/18
  • Steven Curtis Chapman: 12/22-12/24
  • Edward James Olmos: 12/25-12/26

The Candlelight Processional is offered 3 times each night at 5 PM, 6:45 PM and 8:15 PM.  Guests can have guaranteed seating for the event by booking a breakfast, lunch or dinner Candlelight Processional Dining Package. The bookings for these packages will open to guests starting on July 3rd. Annual Passholders and DVC Members will be able to book their packages starting on July 2nd, so they will have a 1 day exclusive early booking window!

Who are you hoping to see on the celebrity lineup list this year?

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!
