BREAKING NEWS: Disney Releases 2020 Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays Menus

While the holiday season officially kicks off tomorrow at Walt Disney World, at EPCOT, we need to wait a few more weeks until the 2020 Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays kicks off on November 27, 2020. Disney has released the foodie guide for the festival and my diet is in danger. Good thing calories do not count while at Walt Disney World, right? Catch all the details below.





 

Here are all the details from Disney Cast Member Karen McClintock:

As we savor the last few weeks of Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival ending November 22, our Festival chefs are busy putting the final touches on the Holiday Kitchen menus for the upcoming Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays presented by AdventHealth.

Celebrating joyous holiday cheer from around the globe, this year’s festival runs November 27 through December 30, 2020, and features a variety of yuletide decorations, live holiday music at various EPCOT stages, family-friendly activities, and, of course, the delicious food and beverage offerings at the Holiday Kitchens scattered throughout all 11 World Showcase pavilions and World Showplace.

The popular Holiday Cookie Stroll is back this year with yummy freshly baked cookies from the EPCOT bakery ovens. The Festival Passport lists the five official Holiday Cookie Stroll locations. Each stop will offer a delicious cookie for purchase and a stamp for your Festival Passport. Once you’ve collected all five stamps, bring your Festival Passport to the Sweets & Treats Holiday Kitchen to receive an adorable complimentary Minnie Peppermint Cookie! The Holiday Cookie Stroll can be completed at your own leisure, and you can even bring back your stamped Festival Passport to EPCOT at any time during the festival to complete your stroll.

In addition to all the cookies and decadent desserts at the festival, the EPCOT pastry chefs have been busy creating a Gingerbread Capital City! Located this year in World Showplace, this sweet patriotic display has gingerbread replicas of 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 now it’s time to talk HOLIDAY KITCHENS! This Foodie Guide has it all – from unique and classic holiday dishes to festive seasonal cocktails and beverages. Check out all the delicious details below. Enjoy!
