As a part of Holidays Around the World at Epcot, the Candlelight Processional presents the story of Christmas in truly spectacular fashion – with a celebrity narrator, a 50-piece orchestra and a mass choir.
Regular readers of the Disney Parks Blog know that the Candlelight Processional is one of my favorite events of the year. It’s a holiday tradition for my family dating back before I came to work for Disney sixteen years ago.
