Possibility of meeting your Candlelight narrator?

So this is my second year in Candlelight, and this year I have one show at 5:00pm with Lea Salonga, who is one of my favorite singers. Would there be a possibility of ever meeting your narrator after the show?

I would say slim to none. Remember, the narrator will have two more shows to prepare for and there's not a lot of time in between.

Lea Salonga is a she - she was the singing voice of both Mulan and Jasmine.

I have been to CP almost every year since 2000 and have never once seen any of the narrators in the parks. Even one year, when John Tesh got held up for a day in a snowstorm in Canada, Edward James Olmos, who lives locally, filled in, did not hang around.

I would not expect it.

Never heard of narrators doing meet n greets, which is essentially what you seem to be asking. It would probably be a mob scene if they attempted it.

I think what you are asking is if there is a M&G after the show. I think I once heard that once one of the narrators did a very very quick little M&G but it was an odd situation.

But I think the chances are less than 0.

It doesn't hurt to ask! Try information at Epcot, concierge at your hotel, anyone who look like their in management. If they'd be willing to do a meet an greet, it would probably be after their last performance of the day.

He'd be a hard one to miss. His head was probably hitting the feet of the people in the row above his!

A couple of years back, DW and I loitered around the theater where the musicians were leaving, hoping to meet/see Andy Garcia as we are big fans of the Oceans 11 films. About 15-20 mins after the last CP ended' he walked up the ramp towards the exit (next to the restaurant in the American Pavillion). We did our best to leave him alone, just saying "great job" and that we enjoyed his film work. He acknowleged us and said thank you. Other guests were able to get photos/autographs as he was kind enough to hang out for a few moments. Seemed like a very nice guy. Security ushered him along fairly quickly. Long story short, if you are willing to wait around, there is a chance you could meet the narrator.

When you say "in" does that mean you're in a Guest choir? Because sometimes the Guest Narrators will greet the choirs during their rehearsals.

I met Wayne Brady one time a few years ago in the gift shop of the Yacht Club when he was narrating. If you stay at one of the Epcot resorts you might see them! I saw him a couple times the 3 days he was narrating at the resort.

Slim to none that they will do a m&g in between shows. But you may see them around the parks while they are narrating. Last year and the year before, I saw NPH, Trace Adkins, Brad Garrett, and Jodi Benson walking around the parks with their families.

What was he narrating at the resort gift shop?
