We had such a great time learning about the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays 2019 at a recent sponsored Media Preview!
It featured delicious food and beverage offerings, fun merchandise, as well as great entertainment and holiday photo opportunities.
For more moments from the day, see my #EpcotHolidays Instastories Highlights at instagram.com/funlearninglife.
Plus check out my video below with Live Performances, Frozen 2 merchandise, Living With The Land at Night Time, as well as photos with Anna and Elsa in their new Frozen 2 Outfits.
What to look for at the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays 2019!
We not only sampled the Canadian Wild Rice and Ham Soup with Almonds served with a Pretzel Roll from the Yukon Kitchen, but we also enjoyed a Chocolate Peppermint Shake Featuring Twinings Peppermint Cheer Tea. (My daughter is still talking about both of these.)
The Pork Schnitzel with Mushroom Sauce and Spaetzle from the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen as well as the Smoked Salmon Potato Latkes from the L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen were also very good.
Help Chip & Dale complete a scavenger hunt by collecting ornaments for their Christmas tree! To get started, simply purchase a map and stickers from select merchandise locations, including Pin Central, Disney Traders and World Traveler at International Gateway.
Maps are $6.99 plus tax, and are available throughout Epcot while supplies last. Once you find all of the special ornaments, take your completed map to Disney Traders or World Traveler and exchange it for a festive surprise. (We did something similar during the Flower and Garden Festival and it was a great way to explore the park.)
Each night, a celebrity narrator tells the biblical tale of a savior born to a virgin in Bethlehem. This year, the following celebrity line-up will include Neil Patrick Harris, Whoopi Goldberg, Gary Sinise, Marlee Matlin, Lisa Ling, and so many more!
Performances are at 5:00 PM, 6:45 PM and 8:15 PM nightly from November 29 through December 30, 2019.
Grab your Festival Passport and travel through the World Showcase to find the 5 official cookie stroll locations. Each stop will offer a delicious dessert for purchase and a stamp for your Festival Passport.
Locations and cookies include: Bavaria Holiday Kitchen at the Germany Pavilion Linzer Cookie, American Holiday Table at the America Pavilion Gingerbread Cookie, Yukon Holiday Kitchen at the Canada Pavilion Peppermint Pinwheel Cookie, Feast of the Three Kings near the Mexico Pavilion Chocolate Crinkle Cookie, and L’Chaim Holiday Kitchen between the Morocco and France Pavilions Black-and-White Cookie.
At the media event, we got to experience a Mariachi Band, a dragon celebrating the Chinese New Year, as well as R&B Singers performing popular hits.
Be sure to watch the video above to see exactly what I am talking about.
Mouse Gear and Frozen 2 Merchandise
Also in the video is a very cute Frozen 2 Snow Globe with a special feature, Olaf Stretchy Pants as well as a cute Olaf Mug.
Plus, you can learn more about arrangements for Disney Floral and Gifts!
We experienced this first hand and this ride takes on a totally different feel at nighttime.
Plus, it is really cool seeing it with holiday lights and festive decorations.
Visit Epcot International Festival of the Holidays 2019 for the entertainment schedule, and for more information. Look for this seasonal event NOW through December 30th 2019.
