Epcot’s Christmas Tree is Finally Up just in time for the Festival of the Holidays. Thanksgiving week is upon us, and that means the beginning of Epcot’s Festival of the Holidays. Today we got over to World Showcase and could see in the distance Disney had finally installed the World Showcase Tree.

The Giant blueish tree, which features giant ornaments of the various countries found in the World Showcase is looking stunning with the blue sky background. Topped by an Angel holding the world, this tree can be seen from around Epcot’s World Showcase. Check out some close-ups of the various ornaments below.

Wondrous sights, sounds, and flavors of the holiday season are in store when the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays presented by AdventHealth returns from Nov. 25 through Dec. 30, 2022.

To the delight of guests, EPCOT will welcome back the “Candlelight Processional,” a Disney Parks tradition. This heartwarming production takes place nightly at America Gardens Theatre and features celebrity narrators retelling the Christmas story accompanied by the Voices of Liberty a cappella ensemble, a 50-piece live orchestra with herald trumpets, and glorious massed choirs comprised of Disney cast members and Central Florida community groups. 

This year’s lineup of award-winning actors, singers, and TV personalities features several new celebrity narrators making their debut, including Gloria Estefan, Josh Gad, Simu Liu, Daymond John, Mariska Hargitay, and Raúl Esparza, to name a few. They will join returning fan-favorite celebrity narrators, such as Neil Patrick Harris, Whoopi Goldberg, Marie Osmond, and Angela Bassett.
