A Holiday Tradition in Sight and Sound

Experience holiday magic at this seasonal showcase for Guests of all ages at America Gardens Theatre.

Each year, the Candlelight Processional makes its way to Epcot, where the rich sounds of the full orchestra and choir fill the theatre, and a special guest narrator takes the stage. Listen along while the story of the babe in a manger touches your heart as it has for generations—accompanied by warm and inspiring holiday music.

In the wintertime, Holidays Around The World transforms Epcot into an international celebration of Yuletide traditions filled with festive decorations and live entertainment. A special event that’s part of the festivities, the processional is a wonderful way to share the magic of the season with your family and friends! For many Guests, the processional has become an essential family tradition.

Celebrity Narrators

Each night, a celebrity narrator retells the biblical account of the Savior born to a virgin in Bethlehem. All the while, gorgeous choral pieces are woven into the narration as an orchestra and choir provide an inspirational backdrop with songs of hope and joy.

For the hearing impaired, an American Sign Language interpreter translates the legendary account, allowing Guests of all kinds the opportunity to enjoy the event.
