    I understand the Food & Wine Festival ends on Nov 13 this year. When would Epcot start the Christmas Around the World activities?

    Hi Jann,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm always sad when the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival comes to an end each year, but look forward to Holidays Around the World at Epcot beginning soon after. The holiday celebration, which includes the Candlelight Processional, a special edition of IllumiNations, storytelling from around the world and more, begins the day after Thanksgiving and continues through December 30.

    Last year's addition of food kiosks with winter favorites was an added bonus to Holidays Around the World and helps ease the transition from the Food and Wine Festival to the holidays. I can't wait to see what the offerings are this year.

    You may also want to check out the other holiday offerings at Walt Disney World this winter: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and Holidays at Disney Springs. One of my other favorite Christmas activities is to tour the resorts to see the decorations, especially the gingerbread creations at the Contemporary, the Grand Floridian and the Boardwalk resorts.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions about planning your November visit to Walt Disney World, Jann. We're always hear to help. Enjoy!
