What You Need to Know About the Walt Disney World Candelight Processional Dining Package

The Disney World Candlelight Processional

During the event, the Christmas story is told by a celebrity narrator while a 50-piece orchestra and choir (composed of a Disney cast member choir along with an ever-changing group of guest choirs from around the country) accompany the re-telling. The event is held on select nights in November and December. In 2016, the event will occur from November 25 – December 30.
