What a thrill it was to witness the Candlelight Processional this year at Epcot. This Christmas tradition began at Disneyland in 1958 and features different guest narrators each year. On this night, the guest was 2016 Olympic gold and silver medalist in gymnastics, Laurie Hernandez.
The setting is quite different than the Disneyland version, which takes place in front of the Disneyland Railroad station in Town Square. In Epcot the Candlelight Processional appears on a stage in the American Adventure pavilion, which I found to be equally as effective for a moving and inspirational performance.
