The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays has officially begun! The event happens at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park, and this year will last through December 31st, 2020. Whether you attend for the food, characters, activities, or festive holiday atmosphere, Cast Members are making sure that this year’s festival is as magical as ever!
Take your little ones on a stroll around the World Showcase and you may see some of your favorite characters. Queen Anna and Elsa come by in the “Frozen Holiday Promenade,” Mickey and Minnie Mouse star in the “Mickey and Friends Holiday World Tour,” and all festival long you’ll be able to see Santa Claus himself!
To get some Christmas shopping done, the World Showcase is the place to go. Festival merchandise such as ornaments, dolls, fragrances, apparel, decorations, and more are available at retail locations. Chip ‘n’ Dale is the feature to keep an eye out for! They adorn much of the festival goodies in classic Christmas fashion!
Holiday Kitchens are located throughout the World Showcase. From the American Holiday Table to the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen, there is sure to be an exciting treat for each member of the family. Thankfully, the Holiday Cookie Stroll returns this year too! Complete the collection to receive a complimentary cookie as a reward. There are five different locations throughout the park offering a cookie and a stamp for your passport. Don’t forget to pick up a cookie jar from Holiday Markets to collect all of your cookies!
The Festival of the Holidays has already begun at Epcot, so what are you waiting for? Let the Christmas season begin with memories being made at Walt Disney World.
