DDW Pic 841. Candlelight Processional
The Candlelight Processional is a Walt Disney World tradition that currently takes place at Epcot. However, it first took place at the Magic Kingdom exactly 42 years ago tonight. On December 18th, 1971, 1200 carolers from across Florida processed down Main Street to the Cinderella Castle forecourt. Currently, the event takes place 3 times per night throughout the Christmas season at the America Gardens Theater. The celebrity narrator of this musical story of Christmas changes every two or three days. Last week we saw Dennis Haysbert narrate the show. I took this shot from just outside the back of the theater.
