The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is a new celebration for 2017 and it blends the ideas from Epcot’s past Holidays Around the World with the newer festivals that include food kiosks and seasonal traditions from different parts of the globe. In our last post we focused on the celebration in the France pavilion. Now we are taking a closer look at the Canada and United Kingdom pavilions.
Be sure to check your park map and times guides to see all the special entertainment that will be happening during your visit.
As you wander thought World Showcase, it is just so pretty and serene. The holiday decorations are not over-the-top – they just fit so well with the World Showcase surroundings.
The “Holiday Kitchens” that are open during the festival are a lot of fun and bring new flavors to each pavilion. In Canada, they have the Yukon Holiday Kitchen.
Here you can try some holiday tastes from our Northern neighbors. Seafood and French-Canadian flavors are highlighted.
We enjoyed the Seared Salmon (with a Crown Royal Maple Whisky Glaze, Parsnip Silk, Apple Chutney and Hazelnut Croquant) and the Traditional French Canadian Toutier with Canadian Ketchup. Delicious!
It is hard to pass up a wine flight, so we also tried the ice wine flight – which gave us a taste of each of the ice wine selections – Cabernet Franc, Neige Apple, and Riesling.
More beautiful poinsettias line the pathway as you walk into the United Kingdom pavilion.
I just loved this giant tea service display. We have these holiday dishes at home (although a lot smaller!) so it was fun to see this.
Care for a spot of tea? So pretty!
Epcot’s World Showcase is just a beautiful place to spend part of the holiday season, The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is not-to-be-missed! We have explored France and now Canada/UK on the blog – next we will take a look at some of the other special places in Epcot during the holiday season.
