It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around Walt Disney World’s second theme park, Epcot. This unique theme park has always been one-of-a-kind, but during the holiday season it transforms into something magical. Here are five ways you can celebrate most magical time of year in Epcot!
Festival of the Holidays
The last Epcot festival of the season is officially underway. From Nov. 18 until Dec. 30, guests can indulge in festive food and drinks from around the world at 15 holiday kitchens. So grab your holiday passport, and keep track of which festive tastes you decided to try!
Where else can you go to learn about holiday cultures from different nations? World Showcase boasts 11 nations, each with their own holiday traditions. Thanks to storytellers and bands in each country, guests can learn all about each one! From Storyteller Sigrid in Norway to Father Christmas in the United Kingdom, these interactive storytellers can add extra layer of holiday cheer to your vacation.
Epcot’s Candlelight Processional is one holiday tradition that can’t be missed! Celebrity narrators share the story of Christmas alongside a 50-piece orchestra and choir. Performances are held at 5:00 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. nightly from Nov. 22, 2018 until Dec. 30, 2018, so don’t forget to make time to experience this special holiday treat.
