Candlelight Processional Returns to Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort

From Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager and posted on the Disney Parks Blog.

The “Candlelight Processional,” a highlight of the holiday offerings at Epcot, returned last night.

In case you haven’t seen the processional, the show is a retelling of the Christmas story by a celebrity narrator with seasonal songs performed by a live choir and orchestra. Shows take place each day at 5, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m. (except on December 7, when shows will take place only at 6:45 and 8:15 p.m.).


First up in this year’s schedule of narrators is actress Jodi Benson, who voiced Ariel in “The Little Mermaid.” Joining the lineup for the first time this year are Jonathan Groff, who voiced Kristoff in “Frozen” and comedian Ana Gasteyer. Check out the full schedule below (entertainment is subject to change).

One of the easiest ways to experience the Candlelight Processional is by purchasing a dining package – find more info on that here. It’s a family tradition my family adopted years ago and we can’t wait to attend again this season.
