Re-Imagineering “Candlelight Processional”? No Chance! Or, Is There?

Oh, don’t get excited, my friends.  Let me make this clear … I am not proposing that we re-imagine Epcot’s famous Candlelight Processional!

nph-processional

A beautiful event, as narrated by Whoopi Goldberg and Edward James Olmos, we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy this wonderful performance a number of times.

However, as 2016’s “season” comes to an end, can’t we play “make believe” just a tiny little bit?  Please?  C’mon, you’ll love it!

Baseball “Hall of Famer” Cal Ripken, Jr. appears tomorrow night for Epcot’s final presentation.  He concludes a list of narrators that also involved:

  • Stephen Curtis Chapman
  • Neil Patrick Harris
  • Whoopi Goldberg
  • Edward James Olmos
  • Robby Benson
  • Meredith Vieira
  • Jim Caviezel
  • Joe Morton
  • Ming-Na Wen
  • Jodi Benson

Let’s imagine for just a few moments, though, that three of the above entertainers have already informed Disney that they won’t be able to return in 2017.

What a dilemma, eh?  How to replace them?  Well, Disney tells us that “applications” for the three vacant positions have poured in by the hundreds!

Well, that’s where the truly great news comes in, folks!  Today, it’s our job to choose the replacements!  Yes, you heard me.

Below, make your THREE selections!  Which three of these twelve entertainers would you like to hear narrate Epcot’s keystone holiday event!  Pick three, fans!

Too Late for Holidays Around the World at Epcot? No Way!

Good morning, my friends!  How have you been?  Did you have a great Christmas break?  We certainly hope so!

Sorry for the lengthy absence.  To be honest, I needed a bit of rest, myself.  In addition, as you know, spending time with family is important, and I prioritized my opportunities!

Having said that, I’m not quite ready to let go of WDW’s Christmas just yet.  For instance, let’s visit Epcot’s Holiday Entertainers one more time, shall we?

Huh?  What are you talking about, Bob?  5.2 million calories of what?!  Uh, well, chocolate of course!

Not to be outdone, the holiday exhibit at Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resorts “weighs in” with almost a ton of chocolate and a mountain of calories!

Made of 1,780 pounds of three kinds of chocolate, this display is a sweet-lover’s delight!  At 5,180,176 calories, it is a dieter’s nightmare!
