Dates Announced For 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays & Candlelight Processional
Recently, we shared dates for this year’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties at Magic Kingdom® Park. And today, we’re back with another holiday update for you! We’re happy to share that the 2018 Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays will return to the park Nov. 18-Dec. 30, 2018. The Candlelight Processional also returns this year and for the first time, the popular holiday tradition will open for Thanksgiving on Nov. 22-Dec. 30, 2018.
The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays invites you to discover holiday cheer throughout the park and across all 11 World Showcase pavilions. Special entertainment, storytellers, seasonal favorites at Holiday Kitchens, and eye-catching holiday decor are all part of the fun. Evenings during this time are topped off with a special holiday presentation of “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.”
The Candlelight Processional, a holiday must-do, is a retelling of the traditional Christmas story read by a celebrity narrator, accompanied by a massed choir and live orchestra.
