EPCOT Candlelight Processional Returning This Year

It’s back!  EPCOT will once again present the Candlelight Processional from November 26 through December 30 as part of the International Festival of the Holidays, sponsored by Advent Health.

The show will return to the America Gardens Theather, near the American Adventure along World Showcase Lagoon.  The presentation will include an orchestra, cast choir, and celebrity narrators.  Disney has not yet announced the lineup of narrators.

No Community Or School Choirs

Disney is requiring that all its cast members be vaccinated, and the company will not host choirs from schools and the community.  The performance will include more Disney cast members in the choir.

Candlelight Processional History

Dating back to 1958 in Disneyland, the Christmastime tradition started at the Magic Kingdom in that park’s opening year of 1971 before moving to EPCOT in 1994.

Disney canceled the Candlelight Processional in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Excited that the Candlelight Processional will return this year?
