With Christmas comes one event at Walt Disney World that garners tremendous amounts of attention, the Candlelight Processional at Epcot. Whether it be the telling of the familiar Christmas story, boisterous choir, or the celebrity narrators…guests have delighted in the program’s ability to lift spirits and place one in a “holiday mood.” The impressive ensemble has been taking place for a while, not losing any of its luster with guests and fans.
Recently, singer and songwriter, Bart Millard acted as guest narrator for the show, and it was magical, to say the least. The Grammy-nominated singer of Contemporary Christian group MercyMe lives in central Florida. Although he is a huge fan of Walt Disney World, he’d never attended during the holidays until now!
As a self-proclaimed “Disney Fanatic,” it’s surprising to hear that Millard had never visited the parks or resorts during the holiday season. Needless to say, being part of the Candlelight Processional had an impact on him, as Disney Parks Blog was able to interview the singer and ask him about his experience as a guest narrator:
For those of you still looking to attend the Candlelight Processional, you only have a limited amount of time as the event will produce its final showing on December 30 for the 2018 season. However, if you can’t make it this year, absolutely make plans to attend in 2019. It’s absolutely one of the highlights of the Christmas season at Disney parks and will be sure to feature even more interesting guest narrators such as Bart in the future.
