Epcot’s Candlelight Processional

One of the most beloved holiday traditions at the Walt Disney World Resort is Epcot’s Candlelight Processional. This beautiful event is a joyous retelling of the Christmas story by a celebrity narrator, accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and a glorious mass choir. This special holiday event is held nightly at the America Gardens Theatre in Epcot. The Candlelight Processional is a terrific way to get in the Christmas spirit and to share the magic of the season with your family and friends. The event has become a family tradition for many guests who return year after year to share in this memorable holiday experience.

 Due to its popularity, the Candlelight Processional often fills up quickly. To ensure you have a seat, you may want to participate in one the Candlelight Dining Packages that includes a delicious lunch or dinner, a guaranteed seating section for the Candlelight Processional, and pre-arranged fireworks viewing area. The Candlelight Processional dining packages allow you to enjoy a meal at one of Epcot’s restaurants, while guaranteeing you a seat for the show and a special viewing area for IllumiNations. It’s important to note that sometimes this is the only way to get a seat. Those with Dinner Packages are the first to be seated – those waiting in line who didn’t buy the package, will be given the seats that remain.  If you’re in Disney during the holidays this is a “Do Not Miss” event.
