Festival of the Holidays will be returning to Epcot starting November 18 through December 30, 2018.

Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays surrounds you in the wondrous sights, sounds and flavors of the season as celebrated by cultures near and far.
Stitch Holiday Gift Hunt will return to the World Showcase as well!
Epcot’s Candlelight Processional, one of the most popular Epcot traditions, returns in 2018 with celebrity favorites to recite the stirring story of Christmas accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and massed choir. This dazzling presentation returns November 22 through December 30, 2018, and we have a couple of Candlelight Processional Celebrity Narrators to share. See the list of narrators we know of so far.
Christmas at Hollywood Studios is starting to be 1 of my favorites. The new Toy Story Land will have Christmas decorations up. The statues throughout the land will have a holiday overlay as well as the rides. There will be a special Christmas meet and greets within Toy Story Land as well. And we can’t forget the Christmas music playing! Lasers will also be added to Tower of Terror They will be added to the top and midsection for the Sunset Blvd Holiday Show. There will be 4 sets of multicolored lasers. They are designed to light up the show. 2 additional lasers will be hidden to focus on the tower for projection to outline and dazzle parts of the Hollywood Hotel.
Santa Goofy will be returning to the Once Upon A Time store. There will also be a Christmas version of the Frozen sing-along show. And Echo Lake will have 3 times more Christmas decorations this year!
The Christmas Tree Trail will be returning to Disney Springs. There will be some new trees. Some of those include a Haunted Mansion tree with the topper being the Bride with a heart. A Star Wars tree with lightsaber garland, 4 Park trees with Monorail garland, a full Nordic winter tree, and Mickey and Minnie nostalgia tree. The ornaments on the trees with be avaulable for sale at the trail instead of at the Christmas shop.
