Holidays Around the World Begins at Epcot on November 27

November is just a couple days away and that means there are only a few weeks until the winter holiday season kicks off. Epcot's Holidays Around the World is scheduled to begin Friday, November 27 and runs through December 30.

Holidays Around the World features new entertainment options this year in addition to long-standing favorites including the Candlelight Processional. Gary Sinise kicks off this year's performances of the Candlelight Processional on November 27 and is the guest narrator through November 29. Other guest narrators include Neil Patrick Harris, Chandra Wilson, Daniel Dae Kim, and Amy Grant.

Guests at Epcot can also enjoy daily musical performance at the Fountain Stage featuring the a capella group American Music Machine. The group will be performing modern and classic holiday tunes including "White Christmas" and "All I Want for Christmas is You." Guests can also catch performances of "Joyful! A Gospel Celebration of the Season."

Holidays Around the World also includes holiday celebrations and traditions from the countries in World Showcase. Guests will have a chance to experience music, festive treats, and storytellers sharing holiday stories in the country pavilions.

Some of the experiences this year include the musical Canadian Holidays Voyageurs, the Chinese Lion Dance in the China pavilion, a mariachi band and dancers in Mexico, and the Voices of Liberty Dickens Carolers in the American Adventure pavilion.

And at the end of each day, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will feature a seasonal finale.
