EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays


The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays started this weekend, and it’s not the holidays without treats.

It’s also not an EPCOT Festival without food, and this year there are 15 Holiday Kitchens set up in the park, including a new Holiday Kitchen, “Nochebuena Cocina” (Christmas Eve Kitchen).


The Holiday Cookie Stroll is back, too, featuring a food stroll of decadent and delightful cookies from the Holiday Kitchens. As you treat yourself, collect stamps in your Festival Passport by purchasing five of these items to redeem a special treat from Holiday Sweets & Treats. I’ve also noted where you can find the cookies.


So you don’t miss any of the deliciousness, here is a list of each Holiday Kitchen’s offerings. Let us know in the comments which ones you want to try!
