It’s been an exciting few days at Walt Disney World as the holiday season begins. Epcot gets their holiday celebration a little later than the other parks thanks to the International Food and Wine Festival running until November 23, 2019. Recently, however, decorations have started to spring up, like winter’s first snowfall, which I wouldn’t actually know anything about because I’m a native Floridian. Anyway, it is fun and a little interesting to see the holiday decorations starting to show up at the front entrance and some of the World Showcase pavilions with the Food and Wine Festival still in full swing. Here’s a photo update on what caught my eye on a recent visit to Epcot.
The front entrance has been sporting sparkly red tinsel for years now. It is a striking and bold look especially against the bright yellow paint at the turnstiles and ticket windows. I do love the large globe ornaments. A very fitting touch for Epcot and its message of Peace on Earth during the holidays.
The Canada pavilion has some decorations near Le Cellier Steakhouse‘s archway. More decorations usually adorn the lampposts and shop facades, and should show up in the coming days.
The United Kingdom pavilion is a lovely spot for strolling the side street, and the gardens are always beautiful. I really enjoy the lamppost and storefront decorations here. They are classic and cozy. And the pot of Christmas tea is very good at making me want to stop in at the The Tea Caddy and purchase some tea for the holiday season.
Last but not least is the France Pavilion. J’adore the France Pavilion during the holidays. It is romantic and full of pretty little details. The candy lamppost decorations are unexpected and playful. The beautiful dioramas inside the red ornament bulbs warrant taking a few minutes to appreciate the details. The garlands that dresses the storefronts are elegant.
Yes, the holidays are on their way to Epcot and although it is the last park to get into the holiday spirit, it will be worth the wait.
