EPCOT is known to host some incredible (and super delicious) festivals!
The 2020 Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival may have ended on November 22nd, but we’re already getting excited for the Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, which will be starting up in just a few days! And, it looks like Disney is really getting ready for the holidays to take over, as we just spotted some Festival of the Holidays booths up in EPCOT!
As we learn more about the festival booths, we will be sure to update this post. Here is what we spotted in EPCOT today!
Over at the American Adventure, we spotted the American Holiday Table booth up and ready to go!
This booth will be serving up some classics like the Slow-roasted Turkey with Stuffing, but will also have some new items including a Plant-based Holiday Pot Pie and Pumpkin Gingerbread Cheesecake.
We’ll definitely be tasting LOTS of dishes all around the Festival this year, and we’ll let you know what we think is the best. Will one of the new items from this booth make it onto our list? We’ll soon find out!

Over at the Germany pavilion, we found the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen booth!
The Pork Schnitzel and Cheese Fondue at this spot were a BIG favorite of ours last year and both made our Best of the Fest list! We cannot wait to munch on them again and see if they’re JUST as delicious.
Looking for a Peppermint Sundae or maybe some Hot Cocoa? You’ll definitely want to stop by the Holiday Sweets and Treats booth once it opens up! We spotted the structure already in place today as we walked around EPCOT.
Overall, if you like chocolate and peppermint flavors, this is a booth you may want to make a stop at.
As we made our way around World Showcase, we also spotted the L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen booth.
There are a number of options that will be available here when the Festival starts, including Pastrami on Rye and that signature Black and White Cookie, both of which made our Best of the Fest list from 2018, with the Pastrami on Rye making our Best of the Fest list in 2019 as well!
Looking for some French cuisine at the Festival of the Holidays? Well, today we spotted the Le Marché de Noël Holiday Kitchen booth up already in the France pavilion!
We also spotted the Mele Kalikimaka booth, which is NEW to this year’s festival.
The menu here sounds yummy with the Kālua Pork with Okinawa Purple Sweet Potatoes and Mango Salad, and Lomi Lomi Salmon.
If you’re looking to celebrate the holidays the Hawaiian way, it seems this may be the perfect booth for you!
Over by the Mexico pavilion, we found Las Posadas Holiday Kitchen!
Once this booth opens up as part of the Festival, it’ll serve up some new items including a Giant Tostada de Chorizo and Dulce de Leche Churros.
We LOVED the Giant Tostada de Puerco from this booth last year so much it made our Best of the Fest list, so we’re hoping the Giant Tostada de Chorizo will be just as good!
At the Morocco pavilion, we found that the Sapphire Holiday Kitchen booth was already up as well.
This booth will be serving up a Grilled Lamb Kefta Kebab as well as Sfenj — Warm Beignets with Cream, Cinnamon-Sugar, and Chocolate Sauce, as well as some other items and beverages.
As we walked past the China pavilion in EPCOT, we also saw that the Shanghai Holiday Kitchen was up and getting ready to serve up some NEW dishes.
Will any of those items become new festival favorites? Stay tuned for our reviews once the festival opens.
The Shi Wasu Holiday Kitchen was also getting ready for its guests over at the Japan pavilion.
Some of the flavors and textures of the items from this booth weren’t spot on for us last year, so we’re excited to stop by again soon and see if things have changed.
In the Italy pavilion, we found the Tuscany Holiday Kitchen booth.
This year, the food menu includes some returning items like the Biancaneve Italian Flatbread, as well as a new dish — Sacchetti alla Boscaiola: Four-cheese Mini Beggar’s Purses filled with Sweet Sausage, Caramelized Onions, Pancetta, and Cremini Mushrooms with a Creamy Sauce.
Finally, we spotted the Yukon Holiday Kitchen booth up in the Canada pavilion today.
The Peppermint Pinwheel Cookie from this spot made our Best of the Fest list last year, and is returning for another go this year! There will also be some NEW dishes at this booth like Seared Scallops and Beef Bourguignon.
Some of the booths we didn’t really get a look at today are Festival Favorites, which will be serving up some dishes this year in World Showplace — located between the United Kingdom and Canada pavilions in EPCOT, as well as Holiday Hearth which will also be inside World Showplace.
We also didn’t see the Prost! booth yet. It’s worth noting that the Citrus Blossom, which was at EPCOT’s Flower & Garden Festival, and the Food & Wine Festival, will also now making an appearance at the Festival of the Holidays.
Aside from food booths, we did see a Holiday Market spot up, a Festival of the Holidays guide map, and some other Festival of the Holidays signs up in the park, so it truly looks like EPCOT is getting ready for this festival to begin in just a few days!
This festival is a quick one, lasting from November 27th to December 30th. As we get more information on the festival, we will be sure to update you, so stay tuned!
