Walt Disney World gets decked out for the holidays with all kinds of special shows, displays, and events at its parks and throughout the resort. During a recent visit, I was especially impressed with Epcot's Candlelight Processional, a solemn retelling of the Christmas story by a celebrity narrator (Blair Underwood ably handled the duties when I saw the presentation) accompanied by a huge symphony orchestra and a humungous, candlelight-bearing choir. It was quite a grand-scale production and a real treat. I also enjoyed the park's Holidays Around the World, for which the pavilions around World Showcase share their country's holiday customs and traditions in brief, informative, and entertaining vignettes.
See holiday scenes from Epcot as well as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom, and the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights (which features an outrageous display of twinkling Christmas bulbs) in my new photo tour of the holidays at Disney World.
