Every year we look forward to the return of Holidays Around the World in Epcot! Beginning November 28th and running through December 30th, this yearly celebration features special events like the Candlelight Processional, a special ending to the IllumiNations spectacular, and unique opportunities to listen to storytellers share holiday traditions from around the globe in each Pavilion.
We’re happy to share that a more recent “tradition” will be returning this year as well… Holidays Around the World will once again feature tastes of holiday cuisine from the countries represented in World Showcase! If you’d like to get even more of a start on your holiday snack planning, check out our review of several of these treats from last year’s celebration! (Please note: prices on signage in the pictures below may differ this year from last.)
The Sugar and Spice Holiday Bakery in the American Adventure Pavilion will once again be THE place to grab a gingerbread, chocolate chip, or sugar cookie while waiting in line to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus! This will also the place to grab some peppermint bark or warm up with some hot cocoa.
Also among the treats that will be returning this year is the beautiful Bûche de Noël au Chocolate (Chocolate Christmas Log) to Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in France.
And Gingerbread Ice Cream will make its way back to L’artisan des Glaces.
Don’t forget to get it as part of your croque glaces!
Look for the popcorn cart in the Canada Pavilion to feature Pecan Maple Bark.
You’ll be able to enjoy Hot Applejack Cider (hot mulled cider with whiskey and seasonal spices) at the Rose and Crown Beer Stand in the United Kingdom Pavilion. (Yes, please!)
The Kabuki Cafe in Japan will bring back Teriyaki Chicken Karaage.
Toast the season with some Gluhwein to go along with your Stollen (holiday fruit cake) in Germany.
And stop by the Joy of Tea stand for Kaikouxiao (Happy Face Fried Cakes).
These crunchy sesame cookies were a fun surprise last year!
La Cantina de San Angel in Mexico will once again offer Sweet Tamales.
And a Turkey Waffle will be featured at Promenade Refreshments again this year, but with a bit of a twist!
Last year, there was both a Savory and a Sweet Waffle: the Savory Waffle featured turkey, cranberry, and gravy in a waffle made of stuffing batter, while the Sweet Waffle featured the star ingredients of sweet potato casserole on a sweet potato waffle.
This year’s Turkey Waffle will combine a bit of both: a sweet potato waffle will be filled with roast turkey and green bean casserole.
And Panettone (a sweet bread loaf) at Italy’s Gelato stand can be enjoyed with a sweet moscato wine or hot chocolate.
Happy planning to everyone getting ready to enjoy the best of the Season’s Eatings!
