Disney has just announced that the Candlelight Processional will be returning again this year to EPCOT‘s World Showcase. The first narrators have also been released including the always popular Neil Patrick Harris! Guests will hear the stirring story of Christmas—as told by a celebrity narrator, and accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and mass choir.
Each night, a celebrity narrator tells the biblical tale of a savior born to a virgin in Bethlehem. All the while, gorgeous choral pieces are woven into the production as an orchestra and choir provide an inspirational backdrop with songs of hope and joy.
