One of my favorite ways to get into the Christmas spirit here in Florida is to attend the Candlelight Processional at Epcot’s American Gardens Theater. This year the event runs November 27-December 30 with showtimes at 5 p.m., 6:45 p.m and 8:15 p.m. nightly. Showtimes on Dec. 6 are 6:45 p.m. and 8:15 p.m.
What is the Candlelight Processional?
The Candlelight Processional is a presentation of the story of the birth of Christ through readings by celebrity narrators, music from a full orchestra and vocals by The Voices of Liberty, and a mass choir made up of Disney cast members and high school choirs. It is a magical, beautiful retelling of the Christmas story that is not to be missed.

Personally I’d love to see Blair Underwood or Amy Grant as narrators but I’m thinking we will catch Joe Morton on the 6th before we head home from our family vacation and maybe we’ll catch America Ferrera when I’m at Epcot for a business event. Which narrator would you like to see most?
