Dates Announced For 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays & Candlelight Processional

I’m happy to share that the 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays will return to the park on November 18.  In addition, The Candlelight Processional will also be returning and for the first time, the popular holiday tradition will open for Thanksgiving on November 22.  Both events will run through December 30, 2018

The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays invites you to discover holiday cheer throughout the park and across all 11 World Showcase pavilions. Special entertainment, storytellers, seasonal favorites at Holiday Kitchens, and holiday decor are all part of the event. At night, the festivities conclude for the day with a special holiday presentation of “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.”

The Candlelight Processional, a holiday must-do for many Epcot Guests, is a retelling of the traditional Christmas story read by a celebrity narrator.  You will also find a massed choir and live orchestra. I’ll let you know as soon as the narrators are announced….I always love seeing who is part of each year’s lineup!

I love Walt Disney World during the holidays…there really is no better way to get into the holiday spirit.  There’s still plenty of time to create a magical trip for you and your family, even if it’s just a weekend getaway.  Contact me at tricialtac@gmail.com to begin planning!
