Epcot's International Festival of the Holidays

Epcot's International Festival of the Holidays began two weeks ago. It's such a wonderful time to visit Epcot because it's packed with so much to do for the holidays! I really wish this festival lasted longer but here are a few highlights worth checking out.


It runs November 25th thru December 30th.

First things first, be sure to pick up for Festival Passport when you enter the park.

Complete the Holiday Cookie Stroll by purchasing all 5 of the cookies featured in your passport, collect a stamp for each one then receive a special treat!

Living with the Land gets a festive holiday overlay! Check out the holiday lights and decorations while you cruise thru the greenhouses and learn of the history of farming.

Visit the Festival Kitchen booths to taste flavors of the season from all over the world.

Purchase a map and complete Olaf's Scavenger Hunt thru World Showcase. Even if you don't finish the quest you can still get a special prize!

Joyful! A Celebration of the Seasons is a gospel and R&B performance of holiday songs.

Listen to storytellers tell of the legends of the holidays and how they are celebrated all over the world

The Candlelight Processional is the centerpiece of the holidays at Epcot. Listen to the story of Christmas as told by a celebrity narrator backed by a 50 piece orchestra and full choir! Over the next week you can hear Josh Gad, Gloria Estefan and Neil Patrick Harris!
