Disney World has announced the full lineup for this year’s Candlelight Processional at the Epcot Festival of the Holidays 2021. A favorite holiday tradition for many WDW guests, Candlelight Processional tells the Christmas story with a choir, orchestra, and celebrity narrator. As a precaution, local musicians will not be participating, so that Disney can make sure that all of the performers are vaccinated. Instead, the choir will be made up of the Voices of Liberty and Disney World cast members.

The celebrity narrator reads the Christmas story during each performance. This year’s lineup includes some very familiar voices, including the talents behind Moana and Ariel, as well as the host of Wheel of Fortune.

Candlelight Processional Tip: These performances are extremely popular, and after a year off, we expect demand to be higher than ever. If you are intent on getting a good seat for the Candlelight Processional, show up to the America Gardens Theater at least 30-45 minutes before the performance starts. If you don’t want to wait, you can purchase a Candlelight Processional dining package that will guarantee you good seats without a wait. If you don’t want to wait and don’t want to pay, you can still see the performance from the American Adventure Pavilion – just don’t wait in the walkway. You won’t have the best view, but you’ll be able to hear everything and get some holiday cheer while exploring the World Showcase.
