Candlelight Processional

If you will be at Walt Disney World over the Christmas season, do not miss out on the Candlelight Processional! This holiday offering at Epcot combines seasonal music from a mass choir and orchestra, with a reading of scripture by a celebrity narrator. It is performed nightly at 5, 6:45 and 8:15 PM at the America Gardens Theatre.

This is a very popular event. The best way to ensure you will get a seat is to purchase a Dining Package. This gives you a great meal at one of Epcot's restaurants and gives you a ticket to the show. Those with the Dining Package will be first to be seated, and those waiting in the standby line will be given the leftover seats, and very often there are no leftover seats.

The Dining Package restaurants and prices have not yet been released; however, from previous years you can expect it to use 2 Table Service Credits on the Disney Dining Plan (1 credit on the Premium or Platinum plans), or starting at $35 per person for the lowest category.

Disney recently released a "sneak peek" of the 2012 celebrity narrators:

11/23 - 11/25: Isabella Rossellini (film/TV star and wildlife conversationalist)
11/26 - 11/29: Neil Patrick Harris (Emmy Award-winner, Broadway star and TV host)
11/30 - 12/01: Whoopi Goldberg (television host, actress and comedian)
12/02 - 12/04: TBA
12/05 - 12/07: TBA
12/08 - 12/10: TBA
12/11 - 12/13: Jodi Benson (singer and actress)
12/14 - 12/16: Olivia Newton John (singer and actress)
12/17 - 12/19: TBA
12/20 - 12/22: Trace Adkins (Award-Winning Country music artist)
12/23 - 12/25: Gary Sinise (actor and musician)
12/26 - 12/28: TBA
12/29 - 12/30: Marlee Matlin (interpreter: Jack Jason) (Academy Award-winning actor and TV star)

*Schedule of performers are subject to change without notice

This truly is a moving event and will get you into the holiday spirit. Little children may have trouble keeping attention, so our suggestion is to bring a bag of quiet toys (coloring books, glow sticks, etc.) to entertain them a bit between the music.
