Can you believe we’re already halfway to the holidays?!
Disney is celebrating by releasing limited-time eats and treats throughout the parks, and we also just learned that Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is finally returning to Magic Kingdom. But, another holiday event is coming back to Disney World this year too — so let’s check out everything that’s been confirmed to return to the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays!
Disney just announced that the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays will be returning to the popular park beginning on November 25th, 2022. This exciting holiday-themed festival brings delicious food and drinks, exclusive experiences, and of course — all the holiday entertainment anyone might ever want.
So, what do we know about this year’s fest? Disney shared that Santa Claus and other Holiday Storytellers from around the world will be returning to the World Showcase to teach guests about holiday traditions from different cultures.
Not only that, but the beloved Candlelight Processional is returning as well. On select nights, guests can gather at the America Gardens Theatre to hear the Christmas story told by a celebrity guest accompanied by music and songs.
And NEW to the Festival of the Holidays this year is an attraction overlay! Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be playing “a mash-up of seasonal jams” on the ride. Guests will blast off to holiday tunes.
The Festival of the Holidays Cookie Stroll will be back, where guests can participate in a scavenger hunt that involves eating cookies — need we say more? You can also win a prize for completing the hunt!
And of course, what would an EPCOT festival be without the festival booths?! Sample treats from around the globe at festive Holiday Kitchens. Disney hasn’t shared what booths will be returning or if there are any new ones on the horizon, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out.
We can’t WAIT to see what else Disney brings back for the 2022 EPCOT Festival of the Holidays — so stay tuned for more updates and details!
