EPCOT Festival of the Holidays Returns, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Holiday Offerings and More

Today Disney dropped a lot of holiday news! From the Disney Very Merriest After Hours Event, to the return of Sunset Seasons Greetings and now an announcement that the EPCOT International Festival of Holidays will also return!

EPCOT’s popular International Festival of the Holidays will return on November 26 and will run through December 30.

The Holiday Kitchens will return, as will the Cookie Stroll and performances by the Voices of Liberty. (I wonder if they’ll be back in their rotunda or if they will have another food kiosk in there.)

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom the seasonal decorations will return and the flotillas on Discovery River will switch to seasonal themes.

The Tree of Life will showcase the holiday version of the ‘Tree of Life Awakenings’ most nights and it will also become a Beacon of Magic for the 50th Anniversary.

 Disney Springs

Over at Disney Springs guests will see the return of the Disney Christmas Tree Stroll, and some trees will be themed to the 50th Anniversary “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.”

There will be “magical snowfalls” in Town Center.

Special themed food and beverages will also be available and Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar will become Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar.

Of course the Disney Resorts will also have holiday offerings.
