Disney World Candlelight Processional Dining Package

Disney World’s Candlelight Processional is a popular event during the holiday season in Epcot. The event happens three times each night at the America Gardens Theater in the American Pavilion.

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 2015, the event will occur from November 27 – December 30.
