Ep 085. The One with the Candlelight Processional


In the 85th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave give a presentation of one of the longest running Christmas traditions at Disney World -- the Epcot Candlelight Processional! 

First, a look at the reopening of All Star Sports and Typhoon Lagoon (Jenn is excited!), then somehow they get on the topic of makeup and dry shampoo. Because of course they do.

And then, Jenn and Dave narrate the Candlelight Processional, with the same words you'll hear repeated by various celebrities through November and December - and the music from the Candlelight Processional choir. If you've never been to see the show live, this is a great way to experience the reading of the Christmas story with some incredible music! 

(Fine Print: The script used from Jenn's opening about the show at Disneyland to Dave's ending with the verse leading into Hallelujah chorus is directly from the 2021 Epcot Candlelight Processional. The music used is taken from the performance during the Ana Gasteyer performances December 17-19, 2021)
