The annual Holidays Around the World returns to Epcot from November 28 to December 30, 2014. This is one of my favorite holiday events at Walt Disney World Resort. Between the amazing Candlelight Processional and the entertainment commemorating the international spirit of the season, this event puts me in such a good holiday mood. I recently visited World Showcase to check out some of the unique shopping experiences created especially for this year’s event.
This year, we are offering some Disney pins to celebrate the season including a limited release logo pin. There are also two different pins created for guests who are Annual Passholders or Disney Vacation Clubmembers. I love the Figment ornament pin which can be added to a tree.
At Germany Pavilion, guests can visit the Christkindlmarkt. Located next to the pavilion, artist Reinhard Herzog will create some beautiful glass-blown ornaments each day now through December 23 (the snowman is adorable). You can also try some traditional German holiday treats such as Glűhwein or Hot Salted Caramel (the latter beverage is one of my favorite holiday drinks at Epcot!).
I also stopped in Karamell-Küche in Germany Pavilion to survey the newest treats made with Werther’s Original Caramel. The location is now offering a caramel gingersnap and a caramel S’more. My son tried, or should I say devoured, the s’more during a recent visit to Epcot; he said it was delicious!
Guests visiting the American Adventure will find Santa’s Village. This outdoor market offers holiday gift items including character ornaments or festive holiday trimmings.
Santa’s Village will also carry Precious Moments including one of their newest dolls that looks likeMaleficent. You can also find Mickey’s Merry Christmas Village products from Department 56.
Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog as I’ll soon provide my annual World Showcase holiday shopping guide.
