Will you and your family be attending the 2017 Epcot Candlelight Processional? Each winter, the Walt Disney World park transforms into an international celebration with festive decor, live entertainment, and specialty foods. Also included with park admission is the The Epcot Candlelight Processional, which is a guest favorite! During opening weekend of the celebration, 2016 Olympic gold and silver medalist, Laurie Hernandez, took the stage to narrate the performance.

I was invited as media to cover this event. All opinions are my own.
Epcot Candlelight Processional
Experience rich sounds of a full orchestra and choir as they fill the theatre. See celebrity guest narrators take the stage and listen along while the story of the babe in a manger touches your heart as it has for more than 50 years.
The Epcot Candlelight Processional is held every year on select nights from the last week of November through December 30th. Three showtimes are offered each evening, choose from 5:00 PM, 6:45 PM and 8:15 PM showtimes. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis and is free with admission to the theme park. I highly recommend arriving up to an hour early at the American Gardens Theatre to enjoy this popular tradition. For an additional cost, guests can book a Processional dining package to guarantee seating at the event.
