That’s right: Orlando’s very own Joey Fatone will now be presenting the story of Christmas on December 24 and 25, 2018.

Joey Fatone will replace Edward James Olmos. Olmos was previously scheduled to host the Candlelight Processional on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

An incredibly popular part of the festive season at Walt Disney World, the Candlelight Processional is held three times nightly and features a celebrity narrator, a large choir, and a 50-piece orchestra.

  1. Joey Fatone was WONDERFUL narrating Candlelight Processional last night! We saw his first performance. Especially loved when he asked everybody to sing along during Silent Night!! His self-deprecating thanks at the end of the show was heartwarming and endearing!! ❤️❤️❤️ Hope Disney has him return every year!!!

  2. Soo excited to see Joey Fatone! Brings back memories from the 1998 Disney channel special. What a talented entertainer and Broadway Star! See you in Walt DisneyWorld, Joey! With faith, trust, and pixie dust!
