Disney Fanatic John Stamos at Epcot International Festival of the Holidays.

Disney Fanatic, John Stamos, will be guest narrator at Epcot International Festival of the Holidays.  The amazing one-and-only actor, producer, musician, and singer never hides his Disney Passion.  I mean the man bought the original Disneyland Sign!  Best known for his career in “General Hospital”, “Full House”, and most recently “Fuller House”, Stamos is an iconic staple. I, for one, grew up watching this man as “Uncle Jesse” and never missed an episode.

Stamos, who has previously performed in the “Candlelight Processional” at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort, has graced the American Gardens Theater stage as a returning celebrity narrator for the 2018 “Candlelight Processional” during the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays!  Complete with a full choir and a 50-piece orchestra, guests enjoy the story of Christmas told by the featured celebrity narrator for that evening’s event.  This year’s featured celebrities include Helen Hunt, Alfonso Ribeiro, Bart Millard, Neil Patrick Harris, Whoopi Goldberg, John Stamos, the voice of Ariel, Jodi Benson, and the voice of Moana, Auli’I Cravahlo.

During the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, Holiday traditions from around the world come to life.  This amazing event features all new Holiday Cookie Stroll, food, and beverages at Holiday Kitchens.  Guests can discover Holiday traditions from Epcot’s 11 World Showcase nations by bringing sights, sounds and flavors of the season celebrated by each culture.  New items to the food menu this year include black forest Roulade with cherry whipped cream at the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen in Germany and Sofrito-marinated beef with sweet plantains and olives at the Feast of the Three Kings Holiday Kitchen.  This sounds amazing!  As a teacher I love teaching my kids about Holiday traditions around the world.  Too bad I don’t live close enough, this would be a really cool field trip!

Guests also have the option of dining at some of the tastiest restaurants in Epcot, as well as select restaurants adjacent to Disney’s Boardwalk Resort and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts.  Made through advanced dining reservations, which are highly recommended, guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner with reserved seating at a performance of the Candlelight Processional.

The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is an event well-liked by all!  The Candlelight Processional really brings in the true meaning of Holidays while providing guests with a unique experience.  This is an event that has been on my bucket list for years, but I just might have to move it up the list if some of my favorite celebrities will be guest narrators!
