EPCOT is Transforming ‘Holidays Around the World’ into ‘International Festival of the Holidays’

New in 2017, EPCOT adds yet another festival– shocker.

EPCOT’s trademarked “Holidays Around the World” winter offering is now becoming the “International Festival of the Holidays.”

The seasonal celebration will feature food, drinks, culture, entertainment and much more at each of the 11 nation’s surrounding World Showcase as well as new Holiday Kitchens around the park.

The Holiday Kitchens will return this year as well, including:

  • American Holiday Table
    From the tender roast turkey to the tasty pork tenderloin, memories of grandma’s kitchen will come flooding back when you visit this salute to the great flavors of America.
  • Feast of the Three Kings
    Dine like royalty as you enjoy scrumptious foods and delicious drinks from the Caribbean at this holiday kiosk inspired by the story of the Magi. While you nibble, learn about the celebration of Three Kings’ Day, El Día De Los Reyes Magos!
  • Holiday Sweets and Treats
    From decadent desserts to savory snacks and merry libations, you’ll be in full swing of the season at this festively-appointed holiday kiosk. Enjoy the view here at Showcase Plaza, meet up with friends or just take a moment to unwind.
  • Mexico
    Watch mariachi dancers celebrating a Feliz Navidad, while imbibing on the zippy spices of Mexican cuisine. The carnitas tacos and horchata margaritas will have you singing, “olé!”

“Chip & Dale’s Christmas Tree Spree” scavenger hunt, where guests can help the chipmunks find ornaments for their tree will also be new this year. Maps can be purchased at select merchandise locations like Pin Central and World Traveler for $6.99+ tax.

The Candlelight Processional (along with dining packages for it), the IllumiNations holiday finale, and “Joyful! A Gospel Celebration” will all return as well despite the name change.
