EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays Dates Announced

Kitchens and Storytellers and Gingerbread, oh my! The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will take place from November 29 through December 30, 2024. Stay tuned for more news about Holiday Kitchens, the Candlelight Processional, and Dining Packages as it’s released.

A man stands on the stage; there are two tall blue pillars at the ends marked with menorahs and lettering that says Festival of the Holidays. There is a large menorah at the back of the stage, appr. 7 feet tall, and a traveling trunk decorated with destination stickers on the stage. The man is dressed in jeans, a coat, and a cap, in a style reminiscent of Eastern European immigrants of the early 20th century.

New Guardians of the Galaxy Show on the Disney Treasure

When the Treasure debuts in December, she’ll be making week-long trips and guests will dine at Worlds of Marvel twice. On one visit, they’ll continue to see the “Avengers: Quantum Encounter” show that is also available on the Wish. But on the other night, they’ll see a brand-new show that is being rolled out: “Marvel Celebration of Heroes: Groot Remix”. If you’ve got a cruise booked on the Treasure, look forward to an “awesome mix” lineup of hits and a chance to show off your Marvel trivia expertise.
