Your Guide To Kid-Friendly Dishes at This Year’s Festival of the Holidays
We’re only a week away from the exciting start of the 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays! This celebration of the Holiday Season includes festive entertainment, storytelling, Santa meet and greet, scavenger hunt and so much more! However, one of the most exciting offerings at this year’s fest is definitely the 13 Holiday Kitchens serving up seasonal specialities from around the World.
If you’re lucky enough to be visiting Epcot this Holiday Season then be sure to bring your appetites and save those snack credits to sample treats from around the globe! And let us just briefly dispell the notion that the festival kitchens only serve up dishes that adults will love. On the contrary, families will find many treats that have received the kids’ seal of approval.
