When it comes to the holidays, there’s no shortage of festivities to partake in around Disney World.
You can watch a holiday parade, gaze at festive fireworks, and party with characters at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in Magic Kingdom. Or, you can enjoy decorations, stories, music, and cuisine from various cultures, courtesy of the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays! And, just like any EPCOT festival, the park will be jam-packed with these unique offerings. So, to help you keep track of everything there is to enjoy, here is our list of everything we know about EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays!
EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays begins November 25th, 2022, and there’s a lot to look forward to! Just take a look at everything we know so far:
Enjoy in the flavors of the season by grabbing any of the bites and drinks sprinkled throughout EPCOT! You’ll be able to find these offerings at the festival’s Holiday Kitchens, A.K.A. food booths.
The Holiday Kitchens provide you with tastes of festive foods from various cultures, and we definitely recommend stopping by some (or all) of them — you won’t regret it!
We’ll Update You When The Holiday Kitchen Booths and Menus Are Announced
Over at the America Gardens Theatre, you can find the Candlelight Processional. This popular offering features a celebrity narrator and choir, and occurs on select nights throughout the festival.
This offering typically also comes with a dining package! This has previously been offered at Biergarten Restaurant, Coral Reef Restaurant, The Garden Grill, and Rose & Crown Dining Room.
It usually comes with your choice of an appetizer, entrée, dessert, and non-alcoholic, non-specialty beverage from the chosen restaurant’s menu or 1 full buffet where applicable. Of course, it also provides guaranteed seating to the Candlelight Processional, which is a huge benefit, as seating can be scarce.

Holiday Cookie Stroll
Are you excited about the return of this offering? WE ARE! To partake in this fun activity, guests need to grab a free festival passport, which provides the list of Holiday Kitchens.
Tucked inside the passport, you’ll find a Holiday Cookie Stroll page with empty spaces available. Every time you purchase a cookie, you’ll collect a stamp in those empty spaces. Once all of the spaces are filled with stamps, you’ll show the completed page to a different booth to get a free prize! You can try new cookies to fill each of those spots, or try the same cookie every single time (we’re not judging — there are some cookies we’d eat over and over again too).
We’ll Update You When We Know Which Cookies Are Being Offered As Part Of The Holiday Cookie Stroll
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Holiday Overlay
For the first time, we’ll get to experience a holiday overlay for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Instead of the classic hits we’re used to hearing, the ride will be playing a “mash-up of seasonal jams.”
We’re excited to see what songs will be chosen!
