Candlelight Processional at EPCOT adds Chita Rivera and Warwick Davis as celebrity narrators

The Candlelight Processional is a yearly tradition for many Disney guests. Three times a night from November 29 through December 30, EPCOT’s America Gardens Theatre will host a live orchestra, mass choir, cast member choir, celebrity narrator, and a retelling of the traditional Christmas story in a moving and spectacular performance.

The list of Candlelight Processional Narrators at EPCOT recently added two more narrators – Chita Rivera and Warwick Davis — completing the roster for 2019. Finally all nights of the show have someone on the calendar.

Here’s the line-up of celebrity narrators* confirmed to-date:

Ming-Na Wen – 11/29-12/1
Neil Patrick Harris – 12/2-12/5
Whoopi Goldberg – 12/6-12/7
Isabella Rossellini – 12/8-12/10
Chita Rivera – 12/11-12/12
Gary Sinise – 12/13-12/15
Pat Sajak – 12/16-12/18
Warwick Davis – 12/19-12/21
Steven Curtis Chapman – 12/22-12/24
Edward James Olmos – 12/25-12/26
Marlee Matlin – 12/27-12/28
Lisa Ling – 12/29-12/30

There’s a lot of star power on the list this year, even if it’s a few nights shorter due the the late Thanksgiving Holiday, and the long running Food and Wine Festival.

The Candlelight Processional is performed three times per night (5:00, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m.). If there’s a narrator you really want to see, we recommend securing guaranteed seating by booking a breakfast, lunch or dinner Candlelight Processional Dining Package at select Epcot eateries. Availability is limited and advance reservations are highly recommended.
