Of the many wonderful, beautiful and amazing ways to celebrate the Christmas season at Disney World, the Candlelight Processional at Epcot is probably one of my favorites.
A narration of the Christmas story which runs nightly from the day after Thanksgiving until December 30, the Candlelight Processional has three performances each night, at 5:00, 6:45 and 8:15 pm. Each show runs about 40 minutes, and features Guest Narrators who read the story, accompanied by a mass choir and orchestra. That is the basic description. Beyond that, you will want to know that it is spectacular, moving, inspiring….and if you love Christmas carols you will likely find this to be a tremendously uplifting experience.
But don’t just take my word for it. Here’s a sneak peak.
There is no fee for the Candlelight Processional, however there is a Candlelight Processional Dinner Package that there is a fee for.
And while you don’t HAVE to have the dinner package to get in to see this concert….not having it will mean that you will wait in line for at least 45-60 minutes prior to the show, and hope that there are still seats available by the time you get to the front of the line. With the Candlelight Processional Dinner Package, you remove the stress about getting a seat, you have a sit-down meal at one of Epcot’s great restaurants, and you also receive access to a preferred viewing area for Illuminations.
If you love Christmas music, massed choirs, and inspiring performances….then I would highly recommend you make the Candlelight Processional a “must-see” for your Disney World Christmas vacation. It’s the best way I know to put you in the Christmas spirit!
