It’s the most magical time of the year at Walt Disney World, and with this holiday season comes so many unforgettable Disney traditions. One iconic holiday experience that can’t be missed at Epcot is Disney’s Candlelight Processional. Each year guests gather to hear the story of Christmas recited by a celebrity narrator along with a show-stopping 50-piece orchestra and choir.
This year’s Candlelight Processional will take place from Nov. 22 until Dec. 30, and as of last week the full list of celebrity narrators have been announced.
The final two celebrity narrators added to the list have caused very much excitement among Disney lovers planning their holiday vacations! Robby Benson will be narrating the Candlelight Processional for Nov. 28-30, followed by John Stamos narrating the Candlelight Processional on Dec. 1-2. Robby Benson provided the voice of Beast for the original Beauty and the Beast, and John Stamos is a self-proclaimed Disney nerd, so it’s safe to say that these two new celebrity narrator additions will be the perfect fit this year.
