Candlelight Processional at Epcot Included with Disney Tickets

The Candlelight Processional at Epcot officially began last week, on November 25, 2011, with celebrity Narrator Mira Sorvino.

Now, Epcot at Walt Disney World Orlando has announced the Chita Rivera will fill the last vacant celebrity narrator dates.  She will host the Epcot Candlelight Processional December 16-18, 2011. 

The Candlelight Processional features a celebrity narrator retelling the traditional Christmas story accompanied by a mass choir and 50-piece orchestra.  The event is located at the America Gardens Theatre and is performed three times nightly, at 5:00pm and 6:45pm and 8:00pm. Plus, the Candlelight Processional at Epcot is included with the purchase of a Disney ticket.
