With Candlelight Processional dinner packages now available for booking, Disney has released a partial list of performers for this year’s concert. If you’ve never been to the event, it is basically a re-telling of the Christmas story with a celebrity narrator and festive holiday music from a large honor choir of schools and churches and huge orchestra plus the famed living Christmas Tree of the Disney World cast member choir.

Here is the partial list of celebrity narrators from Disney:

Jodi Benson – 11/28 – 11/29
TBD – 11/30 – 12/2
TBD – 12/3 – 12/4
Whoopi Goldberg – 12/5 – 12/6
TBD – 12/7* – 12/8
TBD – 12/9 – 12/11
TBD – 12/12 – 12/14
Sharon Stone (New) – 12/15 – 12/17
Ana Gasteyer (New) – 12/18 – 12/20
Marlee Matlin – 12/21 – 12/23
TBD – 12/24 – 12/25
TBD – 12/26 – 12/27
Steven Curtis Chapman – 12/28 – 12/30

Presumably, those other spots will fill in soon.

Narrators are subject to change without notice. – Show Times are at 5 p.m., 6:45 p.m. & 8:15 p.m. each night. *Show Times on December 7 are 6:45 p.m. & 8:15 p.m. only.

I’ve had the honor of hearing a number of narrators. Among my personal favorites are Michael York and Edward James Olmos. I regret not seeing James Earl Jones when he did it at Disneyland. Who would you like to see narrate?

    My favorite was James Avery (the uncle from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air). He also happened to be my first. Second favorite was Robert Urich. Come to think of it, most of the narrators I’ve seen are now dead. Whoopie Goldberg, I saw you last year. Please take care of yourself.
    Seeing James Earl Jones do the narration would have been spectacular. I can’t even imagine how awesome it would be to hear Darth Vader’s voice talking about Baby Jesus. God really knew what he was doing when he created that voice!
