It’s never too early to start planning for holiday fun. Disney’s annual Epcot tradition, the Candlelight Processional, takes a revering look at the meaning of Christmas, and has grown into such a huge hit with crowds that people line up for hours to participate. It doesn’t hurt that tons of celebrities also take part of the fun. Disney has released a partial line up for the event, and has put tickets for special packages on sale as well. While it may be only July, it’s never too early to plan your holiday plans!
The Candlelight Processional started way back in 1958 with Walt Disney at Disneyland. It’s a retelling of the classic story of Christmas, backed by a full orchestra and choir. The event has grown over the years, and now includes a celebrity narrator every night. The show is a beautiful tribute to Christmas with the true religious roots of the holiday.
