    Okay, so even though the list has not been officially released yet, it's starting to take shape! I have been monitoring Steven Curtis Chapman's website and he recently posted his own dates for the processional! His website states that he will be at the Candlelight Processional from 12/12/2010 to 12/15/2010. Does anyone have information to share on other potential narrators? Let's see if we can build the schedule before it's released!!

    When do they usually announce the list? We're only starting to consider which dates to go, and right now we are flexible.

    Last year, the narrator list was released in July 2009. However, this was when the Advanced Dining Reservation window was only 90 days out. Since the ADR window has been moved back to 180 days, I've read that the narrator list may now be released in late spring.

    No, still waiting. :sad2: I've been searching previous narrator's websites to see if anyone has dates posted, but Steven Curtis Chapman is still the only one. Checking everyday!

    With the 180 day window for dining reservations for the Holiday season quickly approaching, you'd think Disney would be posting the official narrator list! I wish they'd hurry up! :confused3 Hopefully by the end of the month...

    When making my ADR's yesterday, the CM told me that they were expected to be able to book the CP packages any day now and to keep calling back and checking. Hoping that means the narrator list will be out soon too!!!

    our 190 day mark for the day we want to see the CP is almost here. what is the correct thing to do---do we make an ADR for the restaurant where we would want the CP package and then somehoe convert it once they are available?

    As far as we know, it isn't possible to convert a regular ADR into a CP package. Since participating restaurants withhold a certain number of tables for the CP, booking is done separately and they force us to wait! However, if there is a particular restaurant that you really want to visit, I would reserve it as a regular meal. Then, if you are able to get that restaurant for the CP, you can just cancel your original reservation.

    Ok, so I chatted with Disney online and was given the following list:

    Isabella Rossellini 11/26 - 11/28
    Jodi Benson 12/7 - 12/9
    Whoopi Goldberg 12/10 - 12/11
    Steven Curtis Chapman 12/12 - 12/15
    Thomas Gibson 12/16 - 12/18
    Trace Adkins 12/19 - 12/21
    Marlee Matlin 12/28 - 12/30

    All narrators are subject to change without notice! Booking should open by the end of July.

    Yay!!!!

    This is exciting.....there are several to choose from during our stay. Mom and I are thinking that Whoopi Goldberg would be good..although I am sure tha DD would love Jodi Benson.

    Thank you....Trish
