Here are the top 15 eats and drinks that you’re going to want to try at the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays this year!
Giant Tostada de Chorizo
We loved the Giant Tostada de Chorizo from the Las Posadas Holiday Kitchen in the Mexico Pavilion last year and it has stolen our heart once again this year! The Giant Tostada is topped with a hearty serving of chorizo with chipotle black bean purée, salsa verde, queso cotija, crema mexicana, and pickled onion all for $9.75.
Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl
And, if you’re a fan of carbs and melted cheese, then the returning Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl is sure to be a crowd-pleaser! You can find this one at the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen near the Germany Pavilion and it is served with steamed baby vegetables and marble potatoes that are great for dipping in the giant serving of cheese. It costs $8.25.
At Mele Kalikimaka, you can find the Kālua Pork with Okinawa Purple Sweet Potatoes and Mango Salad, which is available for $5.25. We really loved this treat last year, and it’s just as good as we remember! The tender pork mixes well with the subtle sweetness of the sweet potatoes and the fruity mango salad.
Chirashi Sushi Tree
At the Japan Pavilion’s Shi Wasu Kitchen, you’ll find the Chirashi Sushi Tree, which features Sashimi-grade Tuna, Salmon, Ikura, and Yellowtail with Vegetables decorated on an artistic bed of Rice to celebrate the holidays, for $6.50. This festive treat is as delicious as it is adorable!
At the American Holiday Table, you can get the Slow-roasted Turkey with Ben’s Original Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Cranberry Sauce for $5.75! This is a quintessential holiday dish — you really can’t go wrong with a turkey dinner.
Frozen Hot Chocolate Martini
The Frozen Hot Chocolate Martini is a fan-favorite every year at the Festival of the Holidays and it is BACK in the Le Marché de Noël Holiday Kitchen in the France Pavilion! This festive and boozy cocktail is made with Grey Goose Vanilla, Vodka, chocolate milk, and then topped with whipped cream for $12.50.
And, if you’re looking for another drink that will instantly put you in the holiday mood then you’ll want to head to The Donut Box booth near Test Track! Here you can find the returning Gingerbread Milkshake (which can be ordered up non-alcoholic or alcoholic with whipped cream vodka). Plus, if you’re a Disney World Annual Passholder, you can even order this up in an exclusive Passholder cup (which is what we did!). It costs $4.50 for the non-alcoholic version and $11 if you get it spiked.
The Hot Toddy
One of our longtime holiday favorites is the Hot Toddy! This year, you can find this drink at the Tea Caddy in the UK Pavilion. There’s a non-alcoholic version that’s just Twinings Christmas Tea and Honey for $3.99 and a spiked version that has Twinings Christmas Tea, Honey, Drambuie Scotch whisky for $9.49.
Pumpkin Spice Ginger Cocktail
The Pumpkin Spice Ginger Cocktail, which comes in a cute plastic Moscow Mule cup, is $11 at Refreshment Port and is a delicious, fall spiced drink! Not only is this drink Instagram-worthy, but it’s also one of the best drinks at the fest.
At Las Posadas in the Mexico Pavilion, you can get the Cranberry-Cinnamon Margarita, which has Apple-cinnamon infused mezcal, cranberry juice, orange liqueur, and lime juice with a cinnamon-sugar rim, for $13.50. This is a very unique margarita with cranberry being the strongest flavor, followed by a hint of cinnamon.
Pomegranate Draft Lager
At the Shi Wasu Kitchen booth in the Japan Pavilion, you can get the Pomegranate Draft Lager, which is a Rice Lager with hints of Pomegranate and Lemon and available as 6 oz for $5 and 12 oz for $9. This is a refreshing drink that goes well with the other offerings from this booth.
Mini Pumpkin Pie Funnel Cake
At the Funnel Cake stand in the American Adventure Pavilion, you can grab the Mini Pumpkin Pie Funnel Cake, which is Pumpkin Funnel Cake topped with Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, and Graham Cracker Crumbles for $9.50! This one was a massive crowd-pleaser.
Coquito Soft-Serve Waffle Cone
At the Refreshment Port, the Coquito Soft-Serve Waffle Cone is available for $5.25! This simple treat might not seem like something dazzling, but it’s delicious. Plus, there’s a spiked version of this treat without the cone for $12!

The Holiday Cookie Stroll has returned once again this year and, if you aren’t familiar with the activity, it’s basically a tour of World Showcase featuring FIVE different cookies that are sure to remind you of the holidays. And, your reward for doing it all is a FREE cookie!
