Epcot International Festival of the Holidays

Just as all the leftovers are done being put away into those Holiday themed ZipLoc bags, Disney’s Christmas celebrations get even bigger, bolder, and more magical! The day after Thanksgiving, November 26th, Epcot is opening up the Holiday Cookie Stroll and The Candle Light Processional.

As mentioned in our previous blog, Disney World Thanksgiving Tips. Epcot will begin it’s annual Holiday Cookie Stroll where sugar lovers can stroll through the World Showcase with their Festive Passports and collect stamps for all 5 of the Disney Signature Holiday cookies. The official locations have finally been announced are listed below: 

*American Holiday Table : Chocolate Crinkle Cookie made with DOVE® Dark Chocolate

*Bavaria Holiday Kitchen: Linzer Cookie

*Holiday Hearth Desserts: Gingerbread Cookie

*L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen: Black and White Cookie

*Yukon Holiday Kitchen: SNICKERS®-Doodle Cookie with SNICKERS® bar pieces

Remember, after you’ve collected all five cookie stamps, you will receive a specialty Holiday

Cookie for completing the challenge. ( I always thought it was challenge not to eat five Holiday cookies in a day. Reason #122521 Why we love Disney! )

What’s more magical than Disney and Christmas? 

That’s not a riddle. I can’t think of anything more magically merrier either. 

Cue: Epcot’s Candlelight Processional

Even though all stores in November and December are filled with 40% off signs in red and green- Disney does not let us forget the true meaning of Christmas. This tradition dates back to 1958 in Disneyland and has been with WDW since the park opened in 1971. Candles are lit and  held as the biblical story of Christmas is told by a celebrity with a whimsical symphony background that could bring a tear to Ursula herself. The line up is as follows:

*Auli’i Cravalho 

November 26 through November 28

*Chita Rivera 

November 29 through December 1

*Jodi Benson

December 2 through December 4

*Alton Fitzgerald White

December 5 through December 7
