After just visiting Disney World during this magical Christmas Season, we have some great videos that we would love to share with you! Check out: Epcot’s Pere Noel in France.

Epcot’s Pere Noel in France

Bonjour!! France, being one of our favorite spots in the World Showcase HAD to be our first stop on this “Holidays Around the World” tour.  As we began to hear sleigh bells, out of nowhere it seemed, came a tall and slender man with a white beard and red suit. We knew instantly that it was Pere Noel! He gathered us all up and began his story of how and why Christmas is celebrated in France.

This was one of the most wonderful storytellers I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Both of my children were awestruck and did not move until Pere Noel was finished speaking and invited them both over for pictures and a hug.

Pere Noel tells us all about “le petit Jésus” and then how “Bobette” tried to trick him with leaving her brother’s shoe out on Christmas Eve, instead of her own!

It was such an honor to learn about other customs and traditions in different countries. You can bet that we will be leaving our shoes under the tree this year, waiting on Pere Noel to visit!

Be sure to stop by and grab some of France’s favorite holiday treats:

  • France – A classic Buche de Noel au Chocolat (chocolate Christmas log) and a special glace à la cannelle et noix de pecan caramélisées (cinnamon ice cream and caramelized pecans).

Holidays Around the WorldEpcot's Pere Noel in France

Every year, Epcot hosts “Holidays Around the World“. You are able to visit all eleven of the different countries and see what each Holiday Season is like. From holiday foods, to parties with singing and dancing and even down to Santa! Yes, Santa! Let me tell you, this is something that you DON’T want to miss. You can grab a times guide from the Showcase Plaza and find out at exactly what times the shows and events will take place in each country. ***Please Note: Valid park admission is required to Epcot (Holidays Around the World is a FREE event).
