Now that Disney has announced all of the holiday offerings at Walt Disney World Resort in 2021, many of us cannot wait to see the Parks in their Christmas decor!
Aside from Disney Very Merriest After Hours replacing Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom, each theme park will have its very own holiday touch. Disney’s Animal Kingdom will have a holiday-style illuminated Tree of Life, and Sunset Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be Christmas-ready with projections on Tower of Terror. At EPCOT, Festival of the Holidays, a fan-favorite event, will be returning!
Whenever EPCOT has a festival, a popular thing Guests (like myself) tend to do is try as many seasonal food items as possible. With so many food items available, it always seems that no matter how many times you visit, there is still more to eat! However, during the Festival of the Holidays, there is a specific challenge set out by Disney that is definitely doable and will allow you to taste a variety of sweet treats.
The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays – Holiday Cookie Stroll allows Guests to collect select cookies from booths around Future World and the World Showcase. There are five official Cookie Stroll locations that Guests can enjoy with cookies for purchase.
At the time of the publishing of this article, the Disney World website notes:
Explore the Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Holidays and stop for delicious treats along the way. Check back for Festival updates!
Grab your Festival Passport and travel through the World Showcase to find the 5 official Holiday Cookie Stroll locations. Each stop will offer a delicious dessert for purchase and a stamp for your Festival Passport.
Please check back for updates.
Although it does not yet note it, in the past, we have seen Disney reward Guests who complete the Cookie Stroll with a bonus cookie, so it will be interesting to see if Disney reinstates this prize once again. Regardless of the end result, the tasty treats consumed along the way are the real prize on this journey.
Will you be participating in the Cookie Stroll at EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays this year?
