2022 Disneyland Candlelight Processional Narrator is Viola Davis

The Disneyland Candlelight Processional is an annual tradition for many fans and cast members at the Disneyland Resort. Most hear, the identity of the narrator or narrators isn’t known until the mic check shortly before the start of the 5:30 PM showing.

This year was no different and the narrator wasn’t revealed until the mic check on Saturday when it was revealed that Viola Davis is the narrator. In general, the narrator will be the same for both Saturday and Sunday nights. There have been years where this has not been the case, however.

Viola Davis is an Academy Award winning actress for her role in Fences. She also has won two Tony Awards, along with an Emmy. She was the first black actor to win the Triple Crown of Acting. This year she releases her memoire called Finding Me. The audio book of this garnered her as Grammy Award for Best Audio Book, Narration & Storytelling Recording.

The Candlelight Processional’s tradition dates back to the days of Walt Disney. It had very humble beginnings that has grown through the years. What hasn’t changed for the most part is that this is a large production that tells the story of Christmas with the celebrity narrator, mass choir, orchestra, handbell choir, and fanfare trumpeters. Daps Magic will have video up later today with Viola Davis as the narrator for this year’s Candlelight Processional.

  1. I did the Candlelight procession back in 80 or 81, when the narrator was Michael Landon. He was the perfect narrator. With him narrating and the huge choir, it was so special we were all crying our eyes out while singing. I still tear up just remembering it. It was one of those really special moments in life you just don’t forget.
