The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is Now Open!


The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is Now Open!

Happy Holidays! To celebrate the joyous season, the 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays provides guests with a look at the holiday traditions from around the world! You can enjoy the Festival at the Holidays with your family now through Dec. 30.

At Epcot, storytellers from countries around the World Showcase share traditions including a musical tour of the Great White North with the Canadian Holiday Voyageurs and the Hanukkah Storyteller’s.


Make sure to catch a performance of the Candlelight Processional each evening with a celebrity narrator, 50-piece orchestra and full choir. The Candlelight Processional is performed three times nightly at 5, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m. – guaranteed seating is available by booking a Candlelight Processional Dining Package at EpcotHolidays.com or by calling 407-WDW-FEST. 

One of my favorite parts of the Festival of the Holidays are the Holiday Kitchens! At the Holiday Kitchens around the World Showcase Promenade, you can find everything from Potato Dumpling with Mushroom Sauce from Germany to Slow-Roasted Turkey with Stuffing at American Holiday Table.
