Holidays Around the World
"Holidays Around the World" is another of the many special events that
occurs at WDW during the Christmas season. It's a celebration of
stories and traditions shared by story tellers in each of the international
pavilions in Epcot's World Showcase.
Holidays Around the World is held daily beginning at about 11:15 am and running to about 4:45 pm (at least that's been the
schedule in the past). The shows are offered about once every hour. Be sure to pick up an Epcot Entertainment Guide
when you enter Epcot to get exact showtimes.
