    Will be making the trip next week and the kids just got their homework. They both have a Christmas around the world project to do. Do the different countries have information on their different Christmas traditions? How are the cast members at sharing info

    Hi, Gregory!  I cannot imagine a more perfect place to be than EPCOT to do a project on Christmas around the world!  Each of the countries in the World Showcase feature a storyteller that will share with guests the story of how Christmas - or the holiday season - is celebrated in their country.  You will find such wonderful characters as Father Christmas in the UK, La Befana in Italy, and the Three Kings in Mexico, and each will give you a background of who they are, where they are from, and what part they play in that country's holiday celebrations.

    In addition, each of the countries in the World Showcase has cast members from those countries.  While you have to keep in mind that they are working to make magical guest experiences for everyone and may not have a lot of time to spend with your children, they are usually quite eager to share information about their country and their traditions.

    I hope you enjoy a wonderful vacation!
