Epcot's 2020 Festival Of The Holidays Makes Merry For Guests

Epcot's International Festival Of The Holidays is a huge annual draw for Walt Disney World travelers. The 2020 "Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays" will scale back the celebration to allow for social distancing, but the Park will still be bringing the fun with Holiday Kitchens, Special Musical Performances, and of course an appearance by Santa Claus all happening November 27 - December 30, 2020.

Grab a map and set off on Olaf's Holiday Tradition Expedition!
A festive quest around World Showcase will send guests hunting for holiday traditions. In 2020 Olaf can be spotted sledding all around World Showcase, collecting new and interesting holiday traditions to share with Anna and Elsa. Guests can help him get back on track, simply purchase your Scavenger Hunt map and stickers ($7.99) at participating locations. Once you have found all of the traditions, redeem your map for a gift worth melting for!

While many of Disney's Gingerbread Displays have been put on hold this year Epcot will have a Gingerbread Capital City created by talented Disney chefs. A patriotic American display pays sweet homage to some of the nation's most iconic landmarks including the United States Capitol Building, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and a 5-foot tall Washington Monument and you can see it at World Showplace.
