There’s no more beautiful way to end the year than seeing all the World Showcase pavilions decorated for the holidays. And there’s no more delicious way than to sample all the seasonal treats too. In 2019, the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays will run November 29-December 30. Spreading holiday cheer across the World Showcase.

Take a tour of 11 World Showcase pavilions and assorted other locations across the park. There you’ll find special entertainment, storytellers, seasonal favorites food and drink at Holiday Kitchens, and eye-catching holiday decor. It’s all part of the Christmas spirit.

Of course, the Candlelight Processional is a holiday must-do for many Epcot guests. As usual it will feature nightly retellings of the traditional Christmas story read by a celebrity narrator, accompanied by a massed choir and live orchestra.

The temporary replacement for Epcot’s “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth,” “Epcot Forever,” will also run during the Festival of the Holidays. Epcot Forever, will revisit some of the park’s most beloved music from its past with a water, fireworks and light show on the World Showcase Lagoon. Another good reason to book your vacation now. An all-new Epcot nighttime show will debut sometime in 2020.
