Capturing Disney in Pictures: 1st Day of Christmas at Epcot

Pluto holiday topiary at Epcot

Every photo has a story.

The holiday season is a beautiful time  to pay a visit to Epcot.  This topiary, one of the many artistic floral  decorations on display,  provides an excellent photo opportunity.   You’ll find a wide variety of photographic possibilities throughout Walt Disney World before the New Year arrives.

Picture this…eleven countries will be decorated for Holidays Around the World at Epcot Showcase.  As you make your way from country to  country, you may see some of Disney’s 1,300 decorated trees  spread throughout all of Disney  World.  Now is a great time to pick up a holiday ornament in one of  these eleven pavilions to display on your own tree for years to come.

Looking for a memorable family event when you finish your holiday ornament  shopping??

Over at the America Gardens Theater Stage at Epcot, you can hear music of the holiday season during the Candlelight Processional. Highlighted by a celebrity  narrator, the Nativity story is backed by fanfare trumpets, a 52-member  orchestra, and a 350-voice choir made up of high school students,  local choirs and Cast Members. By using different conductors, singers, and  narrators for many of the performances, this creates an ever-so-slightly  different theatrical version when you experience a new show. Disney guests  return year after year for an exciting  musical. Delighting holiday crowds at Epcot for nearly two decades, the Candlelight Processional will be a memorable experience for you’ll cherish for years to come.

Be sure to check the viewing times for the night of your visit, but there are Candlelight Processional shows at 5:00, 6:45, and 8:15 most  nights through December 30.

Thanks for stopping by for a photographical Disney ride!

  2. […] This would shock some Disney theme-park purists: I really don’t ride anything at Epcot. I enjoy being there, but not for the Missions to Mars, or the laps around Test Track, and I get motion sick on Soarin’. This leaves a lot of time to wander around with a camera, and luckily, there’s just a tremendous amount to see and photograph.
