OK! Enough “candlelight” already! Actually, it’s time to present the “winners”! So, here we go!
The first poll up was presented a week ago … our quest to choose the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Epcot Holiday Storyteller! Twelve days of Christmas and twelve choices. I know. It was tough. And, probably, a bit overwhelming.
In the end, however, hailing from the fine country of Norway, Sigrid and Julenissen took the crown! It was, by NO means, a unanimous decision. In fact, for the most part, your votes were spread, pretty evenly, across the board. For the final tally, stop back and look.
The “feature” poll came along a few days later when we tackled Epcot’s “centerpiece” holiday attraction – The Famous Candlelight Processional!
Again, it wasn’t a “runaway”, but it also wasn’t a surprise. After gaining the most of our support, NPH – er, Neil Patrick Harris – lays claim to the title. He IS the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Candlelight Processional Narrator!
Finally, I tossed you, what turned out to be, a VERY difficult trivia question a few days ago. I asked, “… who was Epcot’s very first Candlelight Processional storyteller?” The vast majority of you picked Charlton Heston for that honor.
In actual fact, however, according to Intercot, “The Candlelight Processional and Massed Choir began in 1958 at Disneyland in California. Thirteen years later, Walt Disney World presented its first Candlelight Processional in the Magic Kingdom with Rock Hudson as the guest narrator.”
Now, there! We ALL learned something about one of Walt Disney World’s renowned holiday traditions with that trivia challenge.
Have a great day, my friends!
