In 2020 the Candlelight Processional did not take place. It is running daily this year, but there are some changes for safety.

There are no local high school students performing in the 2021 Candlelight Processional. The tree is filled by members of Voices of Liberty. The rest of the choir is made up of Cast Members.

Even though the Candlelight Processional is scaled back a bit, we still recommend it. It’s a moving experience. If you’ve never seen it before, you will not realize that anything is different.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
