WHEN IS BEST TIME TO VISIT?
The Epcot International Festival Of The Holidays takes place November 26th – December 30th 2021. Of course it is a great time to visit the festival anytime but if you can swing it, I do feel the parks tend to have a lower crowd level Monday- Wednesday.
WHERE IS THE FESTIVAL IN THE PARK?
The Epcot International Festival Of The Holidays takes places throughout the entire park! Holiday merchandise, food and entertainment are almost around each and every corner starting entrance to the World Showcase.
WHAT IS THE BEST FAMILY ACTIVITY AT THE FESTIVAL?
The Holiday Cookie Stroll
Hands down, the Holiday Cookie Stroll! This sweet treat stroll is perfect for cookie lovers of all ages and is a stress free activity!
Use your Festival Passport to navigate your way through the Holiday Cookie Stroll and receive one stamp per Holiday cookie purchased. Collect all the correct cookies (and stamps) to redeem at the Holiday Sweets & Treats Booth (near the port of entry) for a delicious WDW 50th Anniversary Cookie and Holiday treat!
BEST SNACK AT THE FESTIVAL
Cheese Fondue Bread Bowl
Located In The Germany Pavilion.
The Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl is as down right cheesy as it gets at Walt Disney World and it’s delicious! This dish comes with steamed baby vegetables and marbled potatoes. Perfect for sharing!
RUNNER UP BEST SNACK
Chirashi Sushi Tree
Located in the Japan Pavilion.
The Chirashi Sushi Tree is equally as festive as it is delicious. This dish includes sashimi-grade Tuna, Salmon, Ikura, and Yellowtail with vegetables decorated on an artistic bed of rice.
HOW WAS THE NEW HARMONIOUS FIREWORKS SHOW?
Absolutely AMAZING! Harmonious is the longest nighttime event to date that has been created for a Disney park. The show itself tells a visual story of global connection and will run every night for the next 18 months.
Where is the BEST place to catch the new show?
The best place in my opinion is by the Port of Entry at the very front of the World Showcase. Be sure to grab a seat early!
Tip: If you don’t want to wait for the show, head to your MyDisnye Experience App to book a “Firework View Dining Package” at one of the park’s dining locations.
