FIRST LOOK: Festival of the Holidays Food Booths Have Been Spotted in EPCOT!

Christmas has been taking over Disney World! So far, we’ve gotten a look at some holiday treats, decorations that almost magically appeared overnight at the Magic Kingdom, and a whole lot more!

The holidays are looking a little different this year due to the new health and safety modifications in Disney World. Although the EPCOT International Festival of Holidays won’t feature the Candlelight Processional among other things, there is still a lot of food coming soon that you won’t want to miss!

While we were in EPCOT today, we started to see the Festival of the Holidays take shape in the park with a new EPCOT map and decorations! But, we also spotted that the food booths, or Holiday Kitchens, have started to appear ahead of the festival’s November 27th debut.

This year, there will be 17 Holiday Kitchens (plus additional specialty items) located throughout the park to welcome guests to Disney for the holiday season! And, we’ve already spotted more than HALF of the booths set up already. Along with the Holiday Market

As a reminder, guests can only remove their face masks while actively eating or drinking and remaining stationary! You can find tables and chairs located throughout World Showcase to enjoy your holiday treats. Guests can also visit the Relaxation Stations to remove their masks.
