The Candlelight Processional is a holiday event offered at Epcot each year where a celebrity narrator tells the traditional story of Christmas along with a choir and a 50-piece orchestra. We are so excited that tonight is the first official night that the Candlelight Processional returns to Walt Disney World for another holiday season. The event is a guest favorite and is typically packed during the performances held each night.
This year’s list of celebrity narrators has been announced and ae listed below:
- Laurie Hernandez: November 24 to 26, 2017

The Candlelight Processional is performed three times each night at 5 PM, 6:45 PM and 8:15 PM. Guests are also able to purchase dining packages that offer a meal at one of the participating restaurants as well as reserved seating for one of the performances. This is a great idea if you want to make sure you get in and get a seat at a specific performance since the wait can get rather long. The breakfast packages start around $35 plus tax, per person for adults and $21 plus tax, per person for kids (ages 3 to 9). The lunch and dinner packages start around $44 plus tax, per person for adults and $15.50 plus tax, per person for kids (ages 3 to 9).
Who plans to see one of the performances of the Candlelight Processional during the 2018 season?
