It wasn’t long ago that Walt Disney World Resort confirmed that the International Festival of the Holidays will be returning to EPCOT this year! However, not every element of this annual festival will be returning to Disney World as Disney Parks also confirmed that its Candlelight Processional will be canceled.
With that being said, many were left wondering exactly how big (or how small) this year’s International Festival of the Holidays would be. Well, Disney has just updated their website to reflect the full list of holiday kitchens returning to this year’s festival and we cannot wait!
