VIDEO: Magic Kingdom® Park Trimmed for the Season

Over this Thanksgiving weekend, many of you have likely started the transformation of your homes to make them “merry and bright” for the holiday season. While decorating can seem like quite the undertaking, it is nothing compared to the conversion Walt Disney World® Resort Cast Members complete on the Magic Kingdom® Park. After months of planning, an autumn Main Street, U.S.A.® turns into a Christmas wonderland in just hours!

Enjoy this time-lapse video of this year’s changeover:

Candlelight Processional Begins Tonight at Epcot®

While the day after Thanksgiving is a day of shopping to many in the United States, at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida it is the official kickoff to the Holiday Season! Today was the beginning of Epcot’s® Holidays Around the World and tonight they will hold their first Candlelight Processional.

During Holidays Around the World, special storytellers from the respective World Showcase pavilions share traditions and lore from their homeland along with other live entertainment. But no Yuletide tradition would be complete without a meet and greet with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Guests will end their night with a special seasonal finale to IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

Epcot’s® Candlelight Processional is a timeless holiday offering that pairs the reading of the Christmas story by a celebrity narrator with seasonal music performed by a mass choir and 50-piece live orchestra. Performed three times daily (5p, 6:45p, and 8:15p), the show is a guest favorite that is difficult to get seats for. Guests wanting to attend can purchase a Candlelight Dining Package which includes lunch or dinner at a select Epcot® restaurant, guaranteed seating for the Candlelight Processional, and VIP viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

This year’s list of celebrity narrators include:

11/23-11/25 — Geena Davis
11/26-11/29 — Neil Patrick Harris
11/30-12/1 — Whoopi Goldberg
12/2-12/4 — Andy Garcia
