A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

Star Wars has been very good for the Walt Disney Company since it purchased Lucasfilms for $4 billion in 2012. They’ve profited greatly from the movies and merchandise it’s made off the brand, to say nothing of the Galaxy’s Edge lands they built at Disneyland in California and WDW’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida in mid-late 2019.

While the lands were still being built, Disney announced an immersive hotel that would eventually be built alongside the Florida version of Galaxy’s Edge, but there were only scant details.

A Behind The Scenes Look At Singing In Walt Disney World’s Candlelight Processional

The Candlelight Processional is an annual event at Walt Disney World that runs from the day after Thanksgiving through December 30th. Each day a celebrity narrator tells the story of Christmas, which is enhanced by music sung by the Voices of Liberty (Disney’s professional a cappella singing group), WDW Cast Members (That’s Disneyspeak for “employees” – everything at Disney is based on “putting on a show” so there are cast members, backstage, on stage, etc.), and a 200-250ish voice mass choir comprised of several invited guest choirs from all across the country (and occasionally from outside the U.S.), along with music played by a 50-piece orchestra.
