Foodie Guide to Epcot International Festival of the Holidays 2019 Part 1

The Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays Presented by AdventHealth is BACK! Celebrating joyous holiday traditions from around the globe, this year’s festival is presented by AdventHealth and runs Nov. 29 through Dec. 30, 2019 and features a variety of yuletide decorations, flavors, family-friendly activities, and of course, the wondrous “Candlelight Processional.”

In addition to enjoying the stirring retelling of the Christmas story as told by a celebrity narrator accompanied by a choir and a 50-piece orchestra, special dining packages are also available for this experience every night throughout the festival. The Candlelight Dining Package allows you to enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner with guaranteed seating that night during the show. These reservations fill up fast, so be sure to book yours today via the My Disney Experience mobile app or by visiting the Walt Disney World® Resort website.

The official Holiday Cookie Stroll is also returning this year with yummy cookies galore! You can purchase any five cookies from any of the official cookie stroll locations noted in their Passport, making sure to collect a matching stamp for each cookie purchased. Once they’ve collected 5 stamps, bring the stamped Passport to Holiday Sweets & Treats for a complimentary completer cookie!  This activity is great for the kids, and can be completed at your leisure. They can even bring back your stamped Passport to Epcot at any time during the festival to complete their stroll. And what’s more, there’s a variety of new cookies for Guests to enjoy this year!
