Late Christmas fun in Orlando, part 2: Candlelight Processional at Disney

See also

There's nothing more Christmasy than the story of the nativity, and one of the best ways to hear it is at the Candlelight Processional at Epcot. This lovely retelling, accompanied by a full band and choir, continues through December 30.

There's a celebrity narrator reading the story of Jesus each night. For the last performances, Blair Underwood will narrate on December 26, 27, and 28, and Amy Grant will take over for December 29 and 30. The show is included with your park admission ticket, with performances each night at 5, 6:45, and 8:15 p.m. You'll want to get to the America Gardens Theater early, as the shows often reach capacity.

As an alternative, you can guarantee your seat by booking a Candlelight Processional dinner package. You book a meal at one of several Epcot restaurants, and you also get a reserved seating time at the show. You don't get a specific seat, but you'll have access to the dinner package area rather than having to wait in the standby line, hoping you'll get in.

This is just one of the late-season activities you can enjoy in the area. Check out this list to read about others:
