Welcome to Our World! What is Candlelight Processional?

Jennifer Fickley-Bakerby , Editorial Content Manager, Walt Disney World Resort

Are you new to Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning? Then our “Welcome to Our World!” series may be just what you’re looking for. Each week different Disney Parks Blog authors will be sharing introductory blog posts on certain aspects of vacation planning or spotlight an event that you may want to consider adding to your upcoming trip.

This week, we’re taking a look at the Candlelight Processional at Epcot.

The Candlelight Processional is one of the most anticipated holiday offerings that many Walt Disney World Resort guests look forward to – and return for again and again – each year. The show takes place at the America Gardens Theatre at Epcot and features a celebrity narrator retelling the traditional Christmas story, as well as live music from a 50-piece orchestra and mass choir. Each year the list of celebrity narrators varies and is usually announced during summer, with more narrators added as the season gets close. The live music in the show is delightful, with the show featuring both recognizable Christmas carols and a handful of international holiday songs. The show is included in Epcot admission and takes place three times nightly, usually running from late November to late December (this year’s dates are November 25 – December 30, 2016).

Because the Candlelight Processional is so popular, many guests choose to book a dining package which includes a meal at a restaurant and priority seating at one performance of the show. Guests who want to attend the show only can do so by joining the standby line, however due to the popularity of the show, very early arrival is recommended.
