With Fall just a few days away, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas and the fun festivities that await visitors to Epcot’s annual Festival of the Holidays! This event celebrates Holiday storytelling, offers incredible concerts, awesome merch, and so much more. A highlight of each year’s fest is definitely the Holiday Kitchens plus the 25 additional food and beverage locations brimming with Holiday goodies. This year, Disney is also introducing a new Cookie Stroll.
Here are some juicy tidbits about both!
