Epcot’s Candlelight Processional has been Canceled for 2020

Epcot's Candlelight Processional

We have more bad news to report today from Walt Disney World.

Disney shared the news earlier today about the changes coming to the Disney World Holiday Season beginning on November 6th. We were heartbroken to hear that the Disney World Resort Hotels will not be offering Gingerbread displays for 2020.

Also up on the chopping block is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, The Christmas Tree Trail in Disney Springs, and now Epcot’s Candlelight Processional…

Here is the official word from Disney:

When night falls, special projection effects will give a festive look to Cinderella Castle this year, providing a colorful backdrop for our guests’ photos. The appearance of the iconic castle will be transformed with a rotating series of designs including a whimsical Christmas sweater and a regal overlay of red, green and gold ornamentation. This will be in place of the Castle Dream Lights. Other holiday experiences that draw big crowds will be on hiatus this year as well, such as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Candlelight Processional at EPCOT. We know these experiences are a cherished part of holiday traditions that will be missed by guests and cast members alike, but we’re glad to be able to bring holiday magic in other creative ways.  

Guests will be invited to step inside World ShowPlace to enjoy the returning group, JOYFUL!, who present a journey through R&B, Gospel, contemporary and traditional Christmas, and holiday music. Also, the Voices of Liberty will bring their incredible 8-part harmonies to the America Gardens Theatre stage for a special concert of favorite carols and songs of the season. There are plenty more details about this festival to come…
