Have you ever seen the “Candlelight Processional” at Epcot during the holidays?
posted on December 20th, 2013 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort
Fifty-five years ago today, on December 20, 1958, a tradition began at Disneyland park that continues to this day, both here at the Disneyland Resort and at Epcot in the Walt Disney World Resort. The Candlelight Ceremony and Processional is a Disney Parks holiday mainstay, in which celebrity narrators join choirs comprised of local choral groups and Disney cast members to celebrate the Christmas story. Over the years, celebrity narrators have included stars like Cary Grant, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and James Earl Jones.

I’m sure many of you would agree that the holiday season is one of the absolute best times of the entire year at Walt Disney World Resort. Much of the fun is already in full swing, from Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park to the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. And starting November 29, Holidays Around the World returns for another festive season at Epcot.

Candlelight Processional—the stirring Epcot holiday tradition in which a star narrator performs a reading of the Nativity story accompanied by a 50-piece live orchestra and massed choir—is as magnificent an experience for those on America Gardens Stage as it is for those watching the presentation.

Does your family have any traditions you follow on each Disney Park vacation? A regular photo in front of Cinderella Castle, or an annual trip to the Candlelight Processional at Epcot to celebrate the holidays, perhaps?

Halloween is less than a week away, which means the holiday season is fast approaching. I can’t think of a better place to spend a holiday break than at a Disney theme park or resort – there’s simply so much to do and see at our parks this time of year.
