Epcot’s Candlelight Processional Adds Kurt Russell, Laurie Hernandez, Ana Gasteyer, and Jodi Benson to Its Roster

The holidays are fast approaching, and that means the return of the Candlelight Processional at the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. Thanks to an announcement by the Disney Parks Blog, we now have the last four names to complete the list of celebrity narrators this year.

Disney Legend and film icon Kurt Russell will be participating this season, as will Olympic gymnast and winner of both gold and silver medals, Laurie Hernandez. Returning once again to the event will be actress/comedienne Ana Gasteyer and Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel from the Disney classic The Little Mermaid.

2017’s roster is packed with talent, including some new faces as well as veteran narrators; check out the full list HERE.

The celebrity narrators tell the story of Christmas with the help of a 50-piece orchestra and a massed choir. The Processional is held 3 times per night at the America Gardens Theatre – 5:00, 6:45, and 8:15.

Dining Packages are your best bet to secure a seat for the Processional, and along with lunch and dinner options, breakfast packages are being offered this year. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Garden Grill, Captain’s Grille, and Trattoria Al Forno will all be offering packages for breakfast during the event.
