JOYFUL! Has Returned to the for the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays!

We’re back at EPCOT today to check out all of this year’s festive decorations, entertainment, and more at the Festival of the Holidays!

Spaceship Earth is looking mighty fine this morning with the new Fountain Pylons!

While we’re going to miss the Candlelight Processional this year, there’s still plenty of entertainment throughout EPCOT and the rest of Disney World! And, we’re popping over to the World Showplace Pavilion to check out one of our favorite holiday musical groups!

JOYFUL! has returned this year, along with Voices of Liberty, for some holiday cheer! The gospel celebration group is performing from the World Showplace stage this year with new health and safety precautions put in place! While the stage is roped off to guests…

As the speakers told us to “get ready to be uplifted,” we couldn’t WAIT to listen to JOYFUL! again for the 2020 festival. And, they were just as amazing as we remember (maybe even a little better because we missed them that much).

The musicians played their instruments wonderfully as each of the singers harmonized so well, we had goosebumps! We grooved along to the setlist that they performed that had us jamming out the entire time.


At the end of their performance, JOYFUL! said that they hope to come back on December 26th for Kwanzaa celebrations. While we aren’t sure if that means they’ll be performing a special setlist for the holiday, we’ll have to keep you posted!


If your holiday plans include a trip to EPCOT, be sure to pop into the World Showplace Pavilion and catch a performance of JOYFUL! And, check out all the other amazing entertainment you’ll be able to find at this year’s EPCOT Festival of the Holidays!

Here’s all the festival entertainment you can find in EPCOT right now!
