This week – along with our Thanksgiving holiday blog coverage – we shared an exciting update on the kick off of the 2017 Candlelight Processional during the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. As many of you know, the Candlelight Processional presents the traditional story of Christmas in truly spectacular fashion – with a celebrity narrator, a 50-piece orchestra and a mass choir.

Gold- and silver-medal-winning gymnast Laurie Hernandez was the first of our list of celebrity narrators. Here is the complete list of narrators (everything subject to change, of course):

  • Nov. 24- 26 – Laurie Hernandez – NEW!
  • Nov. 27-28 – Matt Bomer – NEW!
