It’s time to start thinking about the Holidays and Walt Express couldn’t be happier! We have just learned about Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays Coming This Holiday Season and can’t wait to tell you all about it!
Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays Coming This Holiday SeasonIn the past, Epcot has hosted HOLIDAYS AROUND THE WORLD during the holiday season. This year, that event will be transforming into FESTIVAL OF THE HOLIDAYS!
No one puts on a festival like Epcot, so this makes us super happy to see what is in store for us! We have participated in Holidays Around The World during the last few years and have absolutely LOVED it! Each country represented in the World Showcase has a story to tell about the Holiday Season. Complete with holiday inspired foods and decorations, lots of singing and dancing, and of course, St. Nick (each country is different!). This is one of our most beloved ways to enjoy the Holiday Season. See what happens when you meet Pere Noel in the France Pavilion!
Festival of the Holidays
This festival will begin on November 19th and run through December 30th, 2017. The festival is included with your valid Epcot park admission.
An International Yuletide Extravaganza
Come, delight in stirring live musical productions; savor seasonal food & beverage specialties at the expanded Holiday Kitchens; and take a festive global tour as costumed performers bring time-honored traditions to life throughout World Showcase!
Chip & Dale’s Christmas Tree Spree-Interactive
As you travel around World Showcase, be on the lookout for Chip and Dale as they gather ornaments from holiday decorations in each World Showcase pavilion. Once you spot them, add the corresponding ornament sticker to your map. Then, take your completed map to Disney Traders and exchange it for a festive surprise, courtesy of Chip and Dale! Maps are $6.99 plus tax, and are available throughout Holidays Around the World at Epcot while supplies last.
