It’s easy to get into the Christmas spirit at Epcot theme park this time of year, especially when it’s Candlelight Processional time at Epcot theme park. If you haven’t experienced it, you should consider it.

More than 800 performers and a special celebrity narrator gather on select nights to entertain guests at the American Gardens Theatre. Anika Noni Rose, the voice of Princess Tiana, has been entertaining guests this week with the retelling of the story of Christmas and there are many more narrators to come in upcoming weeks. Here’s the updated list:

    12/09–12/11 — Andy Garcia
    12/12–12/13 — Chita Rivera
    12/14–12/17 — Abigail Breslin
    12/18–12/20 — Whoopi Goldberg
    12/21–12/23 — Brian Dennehy
    12/24–12/26 — Edward James Olmos
    12/27–12/30 — Angela Bassett & Courtney B. Vance

All of the narrators are accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and a mass choir. In fact, more than 200 guest choirs will perform during the entire run of Candlelight Processional. If you’d like to see it for yourself, call 407-939-3463 or visit our special events page.


  • Oh wow, I didn’t realize they had Candlelight Processionals on the east coast too, much less several performances! What an awesome lineup. Makes me bummed that I missed Jon Voight last weekend at Disneyland.
