One of the best times to take part in the magic of Walt Disney World is during the holiday season. This year the 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays will run from November 29-December 30.

During this event guests can check out the Holiday Kitchens, seasonal fun and the Candlelight Processional at the America Gardens Theatre in the United States of America area of the World Show Case.

The Candlelight Processional is an incredibly popular show that features a live orchestra, choir and a celebrity narrator, to tell the traditional Christmas story.

Shows are performed three times nightly at 5PM, 6:45PM, and 8:15PM.

Today Disney has announced the following celebrities for 2019:

  • Whoopi Goldberg – 12/6-12/7
  • Pat Sajak – 12/16-12/18
  • Steven Curtis Chapman – 12/22-12/24
  • Edward James Olmos – 12/25-12/26

Stay tuned for more to be announced.

If you would like to attend this event I recommend using the Candlelight Processional Dining Package. This allows guests to eat at select Epcot restaurants and get guaranteed seating for the event.  The dining package is offered at breakfast, lunch or dinner and is very limited.

Bookings for the Candlelight Processional Dining Package will open on July 3rd and reservations can be made up to 180 prior to your visit. You can book by contacting Disney or by using your preferred travel agent!
