DDW Pic 469. Epcot's Candlelight Processional - Panorama

Epcot's Candlelight Processional - Panorama
On Sunday night, I finally had the opportunity to see Epcot's Candlelight Processional for the first time. Although this incredible production has been entertaining guests during the Christmas season since 1994, I never had the chance to see it. This 40 minute show takes place in the America Gardens Theater three times per night from Thanksgiving to December 30th. It is a moving presentation of the Christmas story featuring a celebrity narrator, a 50 piece orchestra, and a mass choir of about 250 singers. The center section consists of a select group of Disney cast members that form a green "Christmas tree." The base of the tree is made up of the amazing Voices of Liberty group, who normally perform inside the American Adventure. The rest of the mass choir is made up of high school and college choirs from all over the country. More than 20,000 amateur vocalists will perform in the mass choir during the five weeks of performances.  The show that I saw was narrated by actor James Denton, known for his work on Desperate Housewives. After seeing the Candlelight Processional, I highly recommend making it a part of your Disney World vacation. I certainly plan on seeing it every year going forward.
