The Festival of the Holidays Begins

Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays has officially kicked off! The food, decorations, and performers really got us into the spirit of the season. Even the weather being in the 80s couldn’t ruin our Christmas cheer.

One thing Disney is known for is its gorgeous holiday decor. Epcot is no exception. Each of the countries is beautifully decorated. With the kick of the Festival of the Holidays, we noticed some additional decor.

Festival of the Holidays Decor

A large sign greets you as you enter the park. As you make your way to World Showcase there are signs wishing you happy holidays in the different languages of the World Showcase countries. Chip and Dale play in the foilage amid Festival of the Holidays signage with gifts scattered about.

Once you enter World Showcase there are many areas decorated for the festival performers. Each country has a storyteller or performer that shares the traditions of that country’s holiday traditions. You will see little vignettes decorated for the performers but they also make for great photo-ops in between shows.

Aside from the festival decor, there were so many beautiful garlands, trees, and even window displays.

Of course, the start of the festival also means food booths. Each of the booths was decorated with garlands and ornaments too.

I love how the decor in each country is themed to each country’s traditions. From the red lanterns in China to the elves on the tree in the U.K. each county’s story is told through decorations, storytellers, and even the themed food booths.

I have to say that the Festival of the Holidays at Epcot is truly one of my favorite Epcot festivals.
