The Disney Epcot International Festival of Holidays is one of our favorite parts about heading to Walt Disney World for the holidays. And since it combines Christmas music, Christmas stories and Christmas food we pretty much just hop the plane and head to Orlando.

Favorite Foods at Festival of Holidays
As lovers of all things “Holiday,” we came to this festival with a time-tested eye for the quintessential holiday foods from all our favorite International destinations. We update this post yearly with new favorites. And check out our Festival of Holidays Guide for all the things you can find at this event.
Kitchens marked with a star* are locations for the Cookie Stroll. While we love the idea of a cookie challenge around the World Showcase, the cookies were fairly basic across the board! Here are all our favorite foods at each kitchen at the Festival of Holidays.
American Holiday Table
Slow-Roasted Turkey with Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Cranberry Sauce (KF)
Who doesn’t love Thanksgiving? This dish was basically like a tiny Thanksgiving dinner complete with stuffing, turkey, cranberry sauce, green beans, and gravy. This was a perfect example of American cuisine for the festival and made us wonder why we don’t have this dish more often!
Bavaria Holiday Kitchen
Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl with Fresh Steamed Baby Vegetables and Marble Potatoes (KF)
This was probably one of our favorite things from the entire festival. And best of all, for $8.25, it was actually also available as a snack credit on the Dining Plan! Possibly the best use of a snack credit in all of the festivals. Served with veggies and warm fondue in a bread bowl, this could’ve easily been a small meal in itself.
The Donut Box
Gingerbread Milkshake (non-alcoholic)
This little milkshake was actually quite good! Not everyone gets gingerbread flavoring right, but this milkshake was sweet and spicy. And if you’re an annual passholder you can get a cute Mickey and Minnie plastic cup as a free souvenir!
Shredded potatoes combined with herbs and fried up like pancakes are absolutely delicious. These latkes, a traditional dish as part of Hannukah celebrations, come in both plant-based and salmon options. If you add them as a side to the Pastrami on Rye also at this booth, you can even have a makeshift lunch.
Le Marche De Noel Holiday Kitchen
Bûche de Noël Chocolat Blanc, Framboise
This Buche de Noel is a Chocolate Christmas Log with Chocolate Biscuit, White Chocolate Mousse, Raspberry Cream, and Chocolate Fudge Coating. Very french in its makeup, the raspberry jam and cream and filling here is what brings the extra flavor. If you like a thick chocolate ganache, and fruit and chocolate flavors, you’ll like this one.
Las Posadas Holiday Kitchen
This festive Mexican margarita tasted amazing! With sweet apple and tart cranberry flavors, this drink almost tasted non-alcoholic! Dangerous indeed. Very smooth and sweet. It’s made with Apple-Cinnamon infused Ilegal Mezcal, Cranberry Juice, Orange Liqueur, and Lime Juice with a Cinnamon-Sugar Rim.
Giant Tostada de Puerco
Another great last-minute lunch option, this dish is Braised Pork served on a Giant Tostada with Chipotle Black Bean Spread, Guajillo Sauce, Queso Fresco, Crema Mexicana, Pickled Onion and topped with Chicharron Dust (GF).
Shi Wasu Holiday Kitchen
Mont Blanc Tart
If you’re a fan of light flavors then this Matcha Mousse Tart with a Sweet Red Bean Center sprinkled with Konpeito Sugar Candy is a safe bet. Light and sweet, this filling comes in a tart crust and is a great treat. The matcha is not overpowering, and the red bean center doesn’t taste like beans. Definitely a nice light treat to add to your dining lineup.
Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina – Morocco Pavilion
Almond-spiced Cake with Ginger Mousse
A showstopper of a dessert, this little cake is covered in a bright orange ganache. This is an almond-spiced Cake with Ginger Mousse, Orange Ganache, and Sesame Tuille. A traditional dessert combining Moroccan flavors this was lightly sweet and ginger-y.
This festive drink is filled with holiday flavors. A Fig Cocktail with Sparkling Wine, Fig Vodka, and Cranberry Juice, this drink tasted like Christmas! And the vodka wasn’t too overpowering. We’d highly recommend it.
Tuscany Holiday Kitchen
Bomboloni alla Cioccolato-Nocciola
Always a fan favorite, this classic Italian holiday dessert is essentially donut holes. And these Bomboloni are Chocolate-filled Italian Doughnut with Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread and Powdered Sugar. If you’re a fan of donuts and Nutella, you’ll love these. Yum!
Yukon Holiday Kitchen
Maple Bûche de Noël
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a Buche de Noel. And this one comes courtesy of Canadian holiday tradition with flavors of Maple Mousse and Cranberry rolled in Gingerbread Chiffon Cake.
SNICKERS®-Doodle Cookie made with SNICKERS®
This Festival of Holidays Cookie Stroll cookie was by far the best on the Cookie Stroll list. As big as a small plate, this SNICKERS®-Doodle Cookie was soft and light and topped with SNICKERS® bar pieces.
Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company
Carolers’ Cold Brew
This cold brew made special for the Festival of the Holidays was wonderful! As with any sweet flavored coffee, there’s always a worry that it will taste more like sugar than coffee. But that wasn’t the case with this one. Don’t let the towering cream full you. This cold brew was rich and flavorful. Carolers’ Cold Brew features Joffrey’s French Roast Cold Brew with Brown Butter Toffee, Swiss Chocolate Syrup, and Sweet Cream, topped with Whipped Cream and TWIX® bar pieces.
