Three new narrators join us this year for one of the most beloved and heart-warming holiday traditions at Walt Disney World Resort. Baseball Hall-of-Famer Cal Ripken, Jr., and long-time member of the Disney family Ming-Na Wen (voice of Mulan, currently starring in ABC-TV’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”) take to the stage for Candlelight Processional. The annual event is a part of Epcot’s Holidays Around the World celebration, which features a celebrity narrator sharing the story of Christmas, joined by a 50-piece orchestra and mass choir.
Here’s the line-up of performers for 2016:
- Steven Curtis Chapman 11/25-27
- Neil Patrick Harris 11/28-12/1
- Whoopi Goldberg 12/2 -12/3
- Edward James Olmos 12/4-12/6*

The story, the music, the twinkling trees and decor fills you with the spirit of this wonderful season. And you can catch the performances at 5:00, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m. at the American Gardens Theatre.
