Get ready to experience the story of Christmas unlike ever before. As a part of the 'Holidays Around the World' at Epcot, the Candlelight Processional has become a tradition at the Walt Disney World Resort and for so many of their guests. You can enjoy the narration of the story of Christmas by celebrities from November 25th through December 30, 2016. Each celebrity will be available anywhere from two to four nights. In addition to the reading, the show is filled with beautiful live music from a 50 piece orchestra and a mass choir. Together, they play classic Christmas carols you know and love, as well as holiday songs from around the globe.
