Save this post for later

It’s that time of year! Time well spent (5 hours and 11k steps to be precise) as I completed my Allergy Check for this years Festival of the Holidays! I share those numbers with you, because I know how frustrating it can be to stand in line only to be told ‘no’.

We are back at EPCOT for the Festival of the Holidays with a full list of goodies to try.

This year the festival runs from November 24th to December 30th. This is my third year covering this festival with food allergies, and I’m so happy to see how far the options have come. We went from having to hunt down a few select options, to having access to talking to a Chef and an Allergy Guide! Here’s the options for this year’s Festival of the Holidays!

Food booths typically open between 11am and Park Closing (generally that’s 9pm). They are located in World Celebration, World Discovery and around World Showcase.

About Third Party Booths- Info and Expectations

Third party booths at EPCOT are owned and operated by other companies besides Disney. While they have Allergy Guides, procedures are different.

The third party locations are:

Mexico, China, Italy, Japan and France.

Generally, their standards for Allergies are lower than Disneys, and I’d recommend skipping them (As they will also tell you!) if you are concerned about cross contact.
