One of our favorite Christmas traditions is attending Disney’s Candlelight Processional in Epcot. If you are not familiar with this show it is the telling of the Christmas Story by a celebrity narrator while accompanied by an orchestra and a choir. The musicians are top-notch. The choir is made up of local school choruses and cast members. Being part of this show is not just something you sign up for but are auditioned and well-rehearsed.
This year the Processional kicks off on Friday, November 29th as part of Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays. Showtimes each day are 5 pm, 6:45 pm, and 8:15 pm. The show runs until December 30th. Some of the celebrity narrators this year are all-time favorite Neil Patrick Harris, Whoopi Goldberg, Gary Sinise, and Pat Sajak. As you can see, there is quite a variety of entertainers represented. We decided to hear Warwick Davis when we attend this year.
Seats are first come-first serve and guests do begin lining up early in the afternoon. One popular way to guaranteed seating is to purchase a Candlelight Dining Package. The package offers either lunch or dinner at 16 different restaurants in or around Epcot. Pricing runs from $52 to $85 per person depending on the time (Lunch or Dinner) and the restaurant. If you check out Disney’s website: (https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/epcot/candlelight-dinner-packages/ )
for details, there are also a few breakfast options. This is a great way to get a good meal and a guaranteed seat.
Here is hoping that you get a chance to see this amazing show and have a special holiday season.
