Actor Neil Patrick Harris is returning for this year’s Epcot Candelight Processional.

Epcot has released its final lineup of Candlelight Processional narrators this year, with returning favorites Neil Patrick Harris and Amy Grant joining newcomers such as actors America Ferrera and Daniel Dae Kim and former Today Show host Meredith Vieira.

Along with celebrity readers telling the story of Christmas in music and words, the Candlelight Processional includes a mass choir and live orchestra performing three times nightly from Nov. 27 to Dec. 30.

Actor Gary Sinise kicks things off after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27-29), while Scandal's "Papa Pope" Joe Morton (Dec. 6-8) and Grey's Anatomy's Chandra Wilson (Dec. 18-20) help round out a diverse list of performers.

It's free to attend, but the lines start forming at least two hours before the show with visitors packed elbow-to-elbow. If you want to skip the line and guarantee a seat, you can buy dining packages at select restaurants. They cost $34.99-$74.99 for adults, $12.99-$28.99 for children. Call (407) 939-3463 or make a reservation online at wdwinfo.com.
