With the holiday decorations bringing cheer all over Disney Parks, the 2022 EPCOT Holiday Kitchens are ready to serve some favorite dishes to all the theme park guests. From the always popular cookie stroll to some new food options, it is a flavor feast.

While the Candlelight Processional is the traditional event that captures the spirit of the holiday, the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is a feast for food lovers. As the various countries celebrate the dishes that flavor their holiday celebrations, there is an opportunity to appreciate how food connects people to their culture. Whether it is a traditional dish or a modern twist on a favorite, the holiday season is a time when everyone is hungry for a cup of cheer.

Looking at this year’s 2022 EPCOT Holiday Kitchens, there are traditional favorites and some new bites. Of course, the always popular Cookie Stroll is back. Whether guests enjoy all the cookies in one visit or spread out the experience over several days, these delights can inspire the desserts left for Santa. Even if a beverage other than milk pairs with these cookies, it is a fun treat to enjoy while strolling through all the holiday decorations.

In addition to the cookies, other traditional favorites are back. From American Kitchen to Canada, the hearty dishes are delightful on a crisp afternoon. Other items, like the Japanese sushi tree and the pastrami on rye from L’Chaim are always a good choice.

This year, a new Holiday Kitchen joins the mix. The Nochebuena Cocina features an Impossible Chorizo Tamale that might be the dish that everyone is talking about. And, the Alfajores short bread cookie with dulce de leche and coconut is a must try.

In addition to the food offerings, the beverage menu is robust. From seasonal beers to wine, there is a reason to raise a toast. And, other holiday beverages, like eggnog and hot chocolate are plentiful. Do not miss enjoying some of the toasted nuts with a glass of Skrewball Whiskey and Eggnog.

The 2022 EPCOT Holiday Kitchens will be available November 25 through December 30. Prices for each of the menu offerings vary and availability can change. Theme park reservations are required.
