Today is the day! EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays kicks off today. We’ll be bringing you the highlights of this year’s food, entertainment, merchandise, and more. But we figured we’d let you take a peek at a few of the festival’s holly jolly offerings. The weather today is glorious and it’s a great time to snap some photos, let’s take a look.
The Festival of the Holidays has some lovely signage that feels very cozy and traditional. The Holiday Kitchens around World Showcase offer traditional holiday flavors from around the world – a great way to experience a sampling of how the holiday season tastes in other cultures. We’ll have reviews of some the best offers at the Holiday Kitchens a little later.
This year there is a new scavenger hunt inspired by the holiday animated short “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” in which Olaf explores holiday traditions in hopes of finding one for Anna and Elsa. The crowds are fairly light this morning, but we anticipate things to pick up this afternoon and evening as locals finish their Black Friday shopping and become ready to celebrate the start of the festival.
