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’s 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 live music played by a 50-piece orchestra. The approximately 45-minute show is run three times per night (5pm, 6:45pm and 8:15pm) at the American Gardens Theater at Epcot. Here’s what the event is like from the perspective of a member of one of the guest choirs.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) doesn’t have the best of reputations when it comes to their workers. I mean, I’ve heard people refer to TSA officers as, “rude,” “mean,” “uncaring,” “too loud,” “bossy” and a whole bunch more. And I get it – TSA officers are in a stressful but very important job where they have to balance safety and security with, let’s face it, a bunch of people who can sometimes be crabby and/or have difficulty following directions.
But sometimes you’ll come across a TSA worker or two who just make everything just a little bit better. Like Officers Robert Wagoner and Shankevia (Taz) Grant-Carr, who work out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Take a look…
Joe and I just got back from Epcot and I gotta tell you – the brand new Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live! show TOTALLY rocked the audience’s socks off on its opening day!
Hailed as part of Walt Disney World’s “Incredible Summer,” Star-Lord and Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy host and perform in this rockin’ 20-minute cosmic show that showcases popular classic songs from Awesome Mix Volumes 1 & 2. The concert also features a 7-piece alien band from Xander (the Xandarian Chamber Orchestra) and the entire show has audiences singing along and dancing in their seats. Don’t believe me? Here’s the entire, unedited show. Enjoy!
The Aeronaut was a popular watering hole that, unfortunately, burned down in early 2017. Thankfully, no one was hurt. But thanks to the General Manager who promised to rebuild and was good to his word, the pub was rebuilt, back up and running by late November of the same year.
Already well known for its wide variety of entertainment including circuses and cabaret shows, the Aeronaut has decided to expand its themed Saturday Bottomless Brunch by having different entertainers ever week. And for 5 of those weeks, the brunch is called When You Wish Upon A Brunch. I think you can see where I’m going with this…
