This week, Disney Parks Blog readers were among the first to learn about new celebrity narrators at the highly anticipated Candlelight Processional during the 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, Nov. 22-Dec. 30.
As many of you know, the Candlelight Processional is a beloved part of the Walt Disney World holiday season. Celebrity narrators read the biblical Christmas story backed by a 50-piece orchestra and massed choir. And for the first time, performances of the Candlelight Processional begin on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22.
We also shared two of our popular Foodie Guides filled with everything you need to know about the 2018 Holidays at Disneyland Resort, including Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure park.
This special holiday festival returns on November 9 and runs through January 8. For more information on Disney Festival of Holidays as well as Holidays at Disneyland Resort, check out the Disneyland Resort site.
