SPOILER: We Complete Olaf’s Holiday Tradition Expedition at EPCOT
Our MickeyBloggers popped over to the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays today to go on a Holiday Tradition Expedition with Olaf! This family-friendly scavenger hunt takes you around the World Showcase with a map to find hidden Olaf’s. Each Olaf shows our favorite Frozen snowman celebrating a unique holiday tradition.
Guests pick up a map and sticker book for $9.99 and match the stickers representing the holiday traditions with the location you find Olaf. Best of all, once complete you can turn in the map for a special surprise! SPOILER ALERT: If you plan on doing Olaf’s Scavenger Hunt and prefer the element of surprise then give these photos a pass. We take you through where we found Olaf and show you the traditions being celebrated. Let’s take a look:
We got our map at Creations Shop at EPCOT. One side features the blank map with locations you need to visit. The other side features the stickers you place on the map.
We started our adventure at the Mexico Pavilion.
This is a location where you’ll definitely want to look “UP!”
Be on the lookout for some pretty poinsettias!
Here’s a look at the first sticker on our map!
We then pop over to the Norway Pavilion!
The Olaf statue in Norway has been moving around a bit but one thing that doesn’t change is that you’ll find him with the Yule Goat.
The China Pavilion is next on our list.
Olaf is celebrating the season with some stunning paper lanterns.
That means the lantern sticker goes next on our map.
Here’s a quick video we took of Olaf in China!
Our stroll around the World Showcase continues with the a stop at the Germany Pavilion.
Olaf heads inside one of the incredible gift shops you’ll find in the Germany Pavilion.
If you look closely, you’ll see him with an array of candy canes.
Here’s a more in-depth look at Olaf’s Germany Pavilion location.
At the Italy Pavilion, you’ll find Olaf at the gelato stand!
Again, this is a location where you’ll want to look up.
Here you’ll find Olaf smiling form his sleigh with one of Italy’s famous panettones in tow!
It’s time to add the corresponding sticker to our map!
We’re reached the top of the World Showcase with a visit to the American Adventure Pavilion. Here you’ll find two map locations.
You’ll find Olaf hidden among the greenery near the central tree.
He’s posing with a Kwanzaa kinara.
You’ll also find Olaf at another American Pavilion spot (along with some feathered friends if you’re lucky.)
Look for Olaf above the Fife & Drum Tavern.
He’s posing with the sheet music for jingle bells.
The Japan Pavilion was next on our list.
Be on the lookout for Olaf having a bit of a Zen moment.
The image shows Olaf posing with mochi, which is a popular treat!
There’s so much going on in the Morocco Pavilion that it might be hard to spot Olaf
Look for him among the beautiful blooms.
You’ll find him in a sleigh filled with Olive blossoms!
Our expedition takes us to the L’chaim holiday food booth next.
Again, this is one that you’ll have to look up for.
But it’s not to difficult to find Olaf proudly showing off his dreidel collection.
Over in the France Pavilion, be on the lookout for the ornate hedges.
You’ll find Olaf nearby with a Yule Log!
That brings us to the UK Pavilion where again we head to the gardens!
Near the holiday teapot, you’ll find Olaf who is celebrating the Yuletide Season British-style with a sleigh filled with Christmas Crackers!
Our map is inching closer to completion. Only one more Olaf to find!
Our last stop is the Canada Pavilion.
Look along the banks of the pond where you’ll find Olaf posing with some Gingerbread friends!
Once you’ve finished your scavenger hunt you can redeem it for a special prize.
While supplies last, you can take your pick of one of three Frozen-themed coin purses.
You’ll also get a completed sticker on your scavenger hunt map.
We opted for the Anna and Elsa coin purse.
