In addition to the Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom, the future of the 2020 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is still up in the air. This annual event includes the popular Candlelight Processional.

Disney’s latest blog post said it best; “as always, our goal is to explore every option and look at ways in which we can still host events and festivals full of Disney magic, while still operating responsibly with the health and safety of our guests and cast members in mind.”
