Happiness may not come wrapped in a beautiful gift box, but it does come with the fleeting, intangible moments life offers during the holiday season.
It’s that time of the year when you get to spend quality time with family, celebrate the gift of life, and decorate your home festively.
And while every year is special—thanks to our loved ones—why not spend it in the incredible world of Disney? There’s no doubt that every day at Disney World is magical. But it’s even more incredible during this time of the year.
And especially at Epcot, you get to experience the true beauty of holiday celebrations. Here’s why you should visit Epcot when visiting Orlando this year:
International Festival of the Holidays
If you’re in a festive mood, don’t forget to visit Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays. It features the incredible holiday traditions of Disney’s 11 World Showcase Nations. Celebrate with music, food, live entertainment, concerts, fireworks displays, and a tour of Epcot!
The Candlelight Processional
The Candlelight Processional show at Epcot has been a holiday favorite since the theme park’s inception. It’s held throughout November and December and is attended by various celebrities!
There are celebrity narrators that tell various holiday tales to bring the mood to life, and it also features a live choir and orchestra, as well as classic Christmas carols. Previously, the show has been hosted by celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg and Neil Patrick Harris.
Holidays Around the World
Another popular show Epcot hosts every year is the Holidays Around the World event. The show includes holiday decorations, various activities, and delicious food. The show celebrates holidays in a unique way by offering tours of Epcot, inviting famous celebrities, holding concerts, musical shows, and celebrating with various types of wine. The World Showcase is one of the shows that have different features and each of them offers their own version of Christmas and New Year’s.
IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth
One of the highlights of the holidays at Epcot is the IllumiNations fireworks display. Hundreds of vibrant and colorful fireworks greet the sky at the same time. From blue to red, to pink—you name it!
If you’re there with your significant other, it’s the perfect romantic atmosphere to celebrate the holidays with the love of your life.
