    We have a short trip planned for December, mainly to enjoy the holiday decorations and events. How does the pricing for the Holiday Kitchens at the Epcot Festival of the Holidays work? Do you purchase food tickets or pay at each Kitchen?

    Hey there, Mike!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for you to celebrate the festive Christmas season at the Walt Disney World Resort. There are so many amazing holiday touches throughout all of the theme parks and Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. From detailed decor to holiday entertainment and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, you will be able to feel the magic of this season in so many ways.

    Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is by far one of my favorite seasonal experiences. As a self-proclaimed "foodie," I always love trying the inventive international cuisine at the Holiday Kitchens. These individual food kitchens offer small bites and dishes so you can sample a variety of eats, treats, and sweets. Plus they also have deliciously festive wine, beer, and cocktail offerings as well. You can purchase food and beverages at all of the Holiday Kitchens in the same manner you would at any of the Quick Service Restaurants in the parks. You can pay using credit card, cash, MagicBand, or Disney Gift Cards individually at each kitchen.

    While at Epcot, you'll also want to check out the Candlelight Processional featuring a celebrity narrator, a full orchestra, and a talented choir in a joyous Christmas tradition. If you have little ones, they will love Chip & Dale's Christmas Tree Spree scavenger hunt throughout this park.

    I hope this helps, and I wish you a merry and magical vacation!
