World Showcase has always emphasized how fantastic and diverse our Earth is and now the focus shifts to embrace the holidays celebrated in these 11 different nations. Hosted at Epcot, this newer festival will have guests enjoying a winter trip around the globe that will fill them with the holiday spirit.
Festival of the Holidays is open to all guests with valid park admission. Children 2 and under will not need a ticket.
International Holiday Kitchens
The kitchen is the heart of holiday goodness and at Epcot this is no exception. Creating delicious treats for family and friends warms the heart and feeds the soul. Guests will enjoy sampling an incredible variety of holiday foods, drinks, and desserts originating from other cultures and countries, as well as some traditional favorites. These items are available for purchase throughout World Showcase and will have everyone savoring holiday magic
During Festival of the Holidays, the American Garden Pavilion is home to the Candlelight Processional. A celebrity narrator will share the biblical Christmas story with guests of all cultures and faiths. To make this program even more special, a choir, orchestra, and American Sign Language interpreter will also partake in telling this story that means so much to so many. This beautiful presentation will be offered three times each day and runs about 45 minutes.
Priority seating to Candlelight Processional is available to guests who make reservations at select Epcot restaurants. Guests must have valid park admission to dine in the park and will only have reserved seating to one of the shows.
Chip and Dale’s Christmas Tree Spree
Children may be told not to snoop for presents at home, but a Chip and Dale scavenger hunt around World Showcase is strongly encouraged! Guests can purchase a map and sticker set and set out around the world to find ornaments for Chip and Dale’s Christmas tree. After successfully finding all the ornaments, guests can return to Disney Traders with their completed map and receive a special surprise. This activity is open to guests of all ages.
