How To Watch A Live Stream Of Disney’s Epcot Candlelight Processional With Neil Patrick Harris

This is exciting! Will you be watching?

Anyone who’s been to Epcot near Christmastime knows just how truly special the Candlelight Processional is this time of year. The stirring live musical performances and celebrity narrators are a huge draw for Disney lovers. But if you can’t make it to Epcot to see the show in person this year — you don’t have to miss out!

For the first time ever, Disney will host a live stream of the event. So no matter where you live, you’ll be able to feel like you’re part of the Christmas magic! Disney announced the news on both the Disney Parks Blog and in their official Twitter feed:

The performance will be live-streamed beginning on Dec. 4 at 8:15 p.m. ET. To access the live stream, head on over to the Disney Parks Blog as early as 8:05 p.m. to see a few minutes of behind-the-scenes action before the show officially begins.

The Christmas story included in the performance will be narrated by Neil Patrick Harris.

All in all, it’s a must-see event!

As an extra special bonus, you and your family/viewing party can feel even more included in the night’s festivities by tweeting photos of your vacations to Disney theme parks using “#DisneyParksLIVE” in the caption. If your photo’s selected, Disney will share it as part of the stream, according to the Disney Parks Blog. Imagine the joy of seeing your family on the screen!

If you’re able to make it to Epcot to witness a showing in person, the Candlelight Processional runs nightly through Dec. 30 at 5 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. And Harris isn’t the only exciting celebrity guest in the lineup!
