One of the highlights every year during the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays are the Holiday Storytellers found in each World Showcase pavilion. This year, most of the Holiday Storytellers tales have been updated, featuring the same stories, but with new ways of telling them. We have videos of three of this year’s retooled shows.
