I was passing through the Weinkeller when something caught my eye: a small grouping of Glühwein Chocolate Bars by Schwermer.
It’s a global Celebration of the Season at the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays!!
This new Epcot Festival just kicked off today and runs through December 30, 2017. All of the elements of Holidays Around the World (the previous name for Epcot’s annual celebration) have returned, including International Holiday Storytellers and food booths around World Showcase.
The Candlelight Processional will begin nightly performances starting November 24th as will the expanded Peace on Earth holiday version of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.
Brand new this year is Chip & Dale’s Christmas Tree Spree — a festive Scavenger Hunt similar to Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt from the Food and Wine Festival. Only this time, were helping Chip & Dale collect ornaments to decorate their Christmas Tree.
But BEST OF ALL… the HOLIDAY FOOD BOOTHS are back! Better yet, these yuletide Food Booths (similar to the Food and Wine Festival’s Marketplace Booths), which debuted in 2016, have expanded greatly from last year’s seven booths.
So we’ve got LOTS to see and TASTE as we check out the Best of the FESTat the Epcot Festival of the Holidays! And you might as well get your stretchy Thanksgiving pants out NOW, is all I’m sayin’…
In case you had any doubt, the Disney Holiday Season is ON! We spent yesterday at the soft opening for the Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure on the west coast. But today, the elves on the east coast are getting ready for the celebration, too… because the MENUS are up for the Holiday Kitchens coming to the 2017 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays kicking off on November 19th!
Check out the FULL MENUS for the Holiday Kitchens Coming to the Epcot Festival of the Holidays HERE!
This year, the twelve Holiday Kitchens announced so far will be found around World Showcase and beyond.
