Candlelight Processional 2012

 The Candlelight Processional at Walt Disney World in EPCOT is truly one of the most wonderful Christmas presentations I have ever been to.

Disclaimer: It might have had something to do with the fact that I was at Walt Disney World with my sweet family, just 3 days before Christmas.

It might have something to do with the fact that I love Trace Adkins and he was the narrator that night.

It might just be that I'm a silly, sappy, I love Disney and I love Christmas, kind of girl...but either way. It was simply wonderful.







As of today, this is a list of confirmed Celebrity Narrators.
*Now, keep in mind, these are subject to change, if the narrator needs to make a schedule change, but this is the list as of late*
