One of my favorite Christmas holiday features at Disney World is the ‘Holidays Around the World’ at the World Showcase in Epcot. I didn’t expect it when we went during Christmastime so it was quite an exciting surprise. In college I majored in International Business and French, so I’ve always had an interest in other cultures and I think that is probably why Epcot is my favorite park (along with the food and drinks!) So when I saw that each pavilion in the World Showcase had a short performance about that country’s holiday traditions, I wanted to see them all! Unfortunately, we didn’t make it to the performance in every country because of the scheduling, but the ones we saw were perfect for getting in the Christmas spirit! For a listing of the different holidays-around-the-world events, check out Disney’s website here.
In Germany, Helga tells a Christmas story about her first nutcracker, which *spoiler alert* comes to life during the show!
In Norway, there was a completely amazing performance that we came back to see a second time! It’s the story of Sigrid and the Mischievous Christmas Gnome, Julenissen.
