The Christmas season is so magical at Disney. The decorations at Magic Kingdom are beautiful. EPCOT features the Candlelight Processional, in which the Christmas story is told by a celebrity narrator who is backed by a 50 piece orchestra and massive choir. The first time we saw it, Stephen Curtis Chapman was the narrator. It was cold and rainy, and I didn't really enjoy the show. Hopefully, this year will be better and Dennis Haysbert is our scheduled narrator. I love his deep voice, and I think he will do a bang-up job. There are storytellers in each country, and I look forward to seeing them since our last day at EPCOT at Christmas it was like a cold monsoon had settled over the park, and our main concern was trying to keep warm and dry. One of the best things about this trip is that we are scheduled to eat at Biergarten, the German restaurant in EPCOT. As a German major in college, I love the food and the music. The wait staff is generally from Germany, and I have in the past taken advantage of this opportunity to use my knowledge of the language, while enjoying the Oompah band. We have also scheduled a fireworks cruise to view the Illuminations fireworks at EPCOT. The show has a special Christmas tag at that time of year, and I missed it the last time because I was so cold that Rod and I chose to return to our resort. So, I'm really looking forward to this trip and now I just have to wait patiently for December.
