There’s so much to see and do at Disney World this holiday season!
You can check out the gingerbread houses at the resorts, walk through the Christmas Tree Stroll at Disney Springs, or watch the holiday projections at Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom, and Animal Kingdom. And now, a fan-favorite celebration is returning to EPCOT — the Candlelight Processional!
The Candlelight Processional was originally left off the list of holiday announcements for Disney World, but now we know that it WILL be returning this year beginning November 26th! The show typically features celebrity narrators and a Disney Cast Member choir telling the story of Christmas, and we can’t wait to watch it again.
Disney has yet to release the full schedule of showtimes and narrators, but we DO know that it will be showing during the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays at the America Gardens Theatre through December 30th.
Due to health and safety measures, the Candlelight Processional will be a little different this year. Disney will not be inviting choirs from community groups and schools to participate and instead, the stage will be filled with a full Cast Member choir. And, all performers (including Cast Members, musicians, singers, and narrators) will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Disney will be releasing more details on Candlelight Processional Dining Packages soon for those who want to pair a meal with the show, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for the latest!
