Foodie Guide for the 2020 Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays!
The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays presented by AdventHealth runs November 27 through December 30, 2020, and features a variety of festive decorations, live holiday music and most importantly the delicious food and beverage offerings at the Holiday Kitchens!
The kitchens can be found throughout all 11 World Showcase pavilions and World Showplace. The Cookie Stroll is also back this year and once you’ve collected all five stamps, bring your passport to the Sweets & Treats Holiday Kitchen and you will receive a complimentary Minnie Peppermint Cookie!
We have also learned that the EPCOT pastry chefs are creating a Gingerbread Capital City! It will be located in World Showplace, and will feature the nation's iconic landmarks including the United States Capitol Building, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and a 5-foot tall Washington Monument!
