    During my holiday trip, Epcot will be open until 10:30p.m. (and Illuminations will be at 9pm). What time will the food booths for Festival of the Holidays stay open until?

    Hi Jacki,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's wonderful you're getting to enjoy the spirit of the Christmas season at Walt Disney World! It's even more fun to hear you're planing to take in the merry festivities at the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. Touring Epcot during Christmastime is one of my favorite ways to get into the holiday spirit. I especially always love experiencing the beautiful Candlelight Processional.

    You can check the online Park Hours calendar to see schedules for the theme parks, parades, special events like Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, and nighttime spectaculars like IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays shows scheduling from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. for your visit. The Holiday Kitchens are scheduled to be open from noon until 8 p.m. Checking with the Disney's Guest Services Team to confirm hours, I did learn that sometimes the Holiday Kitchens might be kept open an extra hour until 9 p.m. Keep in mind that schedules can change, so it's a good idea to double-check while you're there to see if they'll be open for that extended hour. All the menus at the Holiday Kitchens sound simply delicious! You're certain to enjoy lots of festive flavors as you make your way merrily around World Showcase.

    Jacki, here's wishing you a most magical stay at Walt Disney World!

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
