Promenade of Holiday Sweets at Epcot's Holidays Around The World

No matter what time of year you go, Epcot's World Showcase offers guests the opportunity to a stroll through 11 beautiful and unique pavilions representing different countries around the world. One of the highlights for my family is always to snack around the world getting a taste of the flavors that each has to offer. This year for the holiday season sweets treats are taking center stage at Epcot as the pastry chefs of World Showcase countries show off their sugary best starting November 30.

The toothsome tribute is a part of Epcot's Holidays Around The World celebration, where each country will celebrate their winter holiday traditions through special music, storytelling and dance. It's an exuberant way to share the many different traditions of the season - but get there fast because these goodies only last through the holidays!
