Epcot Holiday Decorations & Storytellers, Joyful! featuring D’Vine Voices, Candlelight Processional – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We visited Epcot 2 days in a row, enjoying the Candlelight Processional (we went through the standby line and got a great seat) and taking photos and video of Holidays Around The World! The front entrance to the park was more muted than normal (below left and right), with flowers and trees. The topiaries that are normally up front were moved further inside the park.

The first topiary we saw was Stitch, hanging out near Spaceship Earth (below, left). We kept walking, and a festive Minnie and Mickey were in front of us (below, right).

Mickey and Minnie stand near piles of presents (below, left). Pluto holds a bone in his mouth, as he stands near his dog house (below, right).

Goofy holds some large Christmas lights (below, left) and Donald is ready for some Christmas cheer! (below, right).

From the back, it looks like Goofy is running towards the Christmas tree (below, left). This special edition Candlelight Processional Vinylmation figure (below, right) was being sold in several different stores.

Video #1 – Epcot Christmas Topiaries and Decorations, Future World 11/29/10 – Video from Future World at Walt Disney World’s Epcot Center, including Stitch, Mickey and Minnie topiaries and the Christmas tree!

Joyful! with D’Vine Voices was back for a second year, entertaining guests with their gospel-fused Christmas music. The colors of the stage are beautiful against the Spaceship Earth backdrop (below, left). The drums wait to be used in another set (below, right).

D’Vine Voices raise their hands in the air as they leave the stage (below, left). We went to the next performance, where the group really raised the roof (and drew crowds) with their music (below, right).

Many members of the group take a turn to sing a solo (below left and right). Songs include “Go Tell it on the Mountain”.

Video #2 – Joyful! D’Vine Voices Epcot “Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee” – This is the D’Vine Voices choral group that is playing this month at Epcot singing “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”.

We went to Canada (below, left) to see Papa Noel (below, right), one of the World Showcase holiday storytellers. This is one of my favorite traditions at this time of year!

Papa Noel goes from lumberjack (below, left) to being dressed as Santa Claus (below, right).

Video #3 – Papa Noel, Epcot Holidays Around the World – Canada Pavilion 11/30/10 – Epcot has storytellers around World Showcase for the holidays, this is Papa Noel from Canada. He tells the story of Christmas in Canada.

The United Kingdom pavilion was looking especially colorful (below, left). Pere Noel (below, right) is another of the storytellers, located in the France pavilion.

Pere Noel (below, left) walks offstage to meet with guests. Santa’s Village (below, right) is in the America pavilion, and features Santa, Mrs. Claus, a Kwanzaa storyteller, a Hanukkah storyteller (inside the rotunda) and shopping.

Santa and Mrs. Claus wait for their next guests (below, left). The meet and greet with Santa (below, right) happens daily through Christmas!

The Christmas tree at the American pavilion (below, left) is the centerpiece. There is also a festive gingerbread house (below, right), which sells gingerbread and other goodies.

You can walk inside the Liberty Inn and see the gingerbread house (below, left). The storyteller for Kwanzaa was out when we stopped by (below, right).

The clouds looked like they were about to open up above The American Adventure (below, left). Trumpet players herald the start of the Candelight Processional (below, right).

One of the trumpet players rests in between songs (below, left). Beautiful lighting sequences highlight the musical numbers (below, right).

Snowflakes are projected on and around the choir (below, left). John O’Hurley was the narrator on the day we went (below, right), telling the Christmas story.

The choir was as wonderful as always (below, left), and I was happy to see the always enthusiastic Dr. John Sinclair was our conductor (below, right).

Candles flicker on the stained glass window (below, left). Two trees flank the choir (below, right).
