Candlelight Processional with Simu Liu as Narrator

The holiday season is officially in full swing at Epcot!

The International Festival of the Holidays offers a variety of entertainment and tasty treats. However, seeing the Candlelight Processional is an absolute must for us every year! We went to see this weekend’s performance with Simu Liu as the narrator.


Marvel fans are familiar with Simu Liu as “Shang-Chi” in the MCU. He expressed his gratitude at being given the opportunity to narrate this Christmas season.

You can watch part of Simu Liu’s dialogue in the video below!

We certainly enjoyed seeing Simu Liu and the talented members of the Candlelight Processional!

This time-honored tradition has been a part of the holiday season at Walt Disney World since its opening in 1971. Experience the celebrity narrators, the Voices of Liberty acapella ensemble, a 50-piece live orchestra and glorious massed choirs as they present a heartwarming retelling of the traditional Christmas story.
