Starting today, the Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will bring seasonal fun from around the globe to the Walt Disney World Resort. Through Dec. 31, 2020, this magical event features delicious food, activities for the whole family, a chance to see Disney characters in their holiday finest and more.
There is plenty of festive merchandise available throughout World Showcase as part of this year’s festival, including fragrances, apparel, ornaments, dolls, stocking stuffers, tree trimmings and so much more. And don’t miss the special holiday collection featuring everyone’s favorite dynamic duo, Chip ‘n’ Dale. The mischievous chipmunks can be found playfully adorning apparel, cookware and more.
Guests can enjoy a stroll around EPCOT while visiting many marketplaces featuring merchandise, food and more. Like the Food and Wine Festival before this, there are some modifications including a smaller presence around the park due to COVID-19 restrictions.
However, guests will still be able to participate in most of the magic with almost every country around World Showcase having a marketplace to visit, food to eat and merchandise to purchase.
Guests planning to visit the parks during the festival should make sure they have made a theme park reservation and purchased their tickets in advance. Disney will continue to use the theme park reservations system into 2021 as recently announced with bringing back the Park Hopper Option.
