This multi-month closure is over! This Epcot attraction reopens just in time for the holidays.
Festival of the Holidays
From Nov. 25 through Dec. 30, you can enjoy holidays around the world with this classic festival.
With over 15 Holiday Kitchens, you’ll find flavors from across the globe highlighting ways the world celebrates the season. This year, you can discover a new Holiday Kitchen, Nochebuena Cocina with an IMPOSSIBLE Chorizo Tamale, as well as indulge in returning favorites, like Potato Latkes from L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen or Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl from Bavaria Holiday Kitchen.
If you’re looking to indulge your sweet tooth, you simply must do the Holiday Cookie Stroll. Collect stamps in your Festival Passport by purchasing five of these items to redeem a special treat from Holiday Sweets & Treats.
In addition to the food, a staple of the festival is the entertainment. As you travel throughout the World Showcase, be sure to take the time to listen to the holiday storytellers sharing each country’s holiday traditions.
Listen to the joy of Christmas and Kwanzaa with the lively JOYFUL! A Celebration of the Season or grab the whole family for some holiday searching with Olaf’s Holiday Tradition Expedition Scavenger Hunt.
As the sun goes down, you can’t miss Candlelight Processional – a moving retelling of the story of Christmas featuring a celebrity narrator and stirring songs performed by an orchestra and choir.
Reopening for the Holidays
Now that Festival of the Holidays is upon us and Food and Wine is officially over, Disney is ready to reopen a previously closed attraction. The Canada Far and Wide attraction closes each year so the space can be used as a food booth for Food and Wine. Now that the festival is over, Disney is ready to reopen the theater.
In this attraction, guests experience an updated version of breathtaking Canada scenes in a the 12-minute Epcot Circle-Vision 360 degree presentation. Because the film is shown 360 degrees, there is no seating available. Guests must stand the entire presentation. However, it is wheelchair accessible.
Canada Far and Wide reopens on November 23, just two days before the start of Festival of the Holidays.
