Living with the Land Holiday Overlay Returning for the 2021 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays

The most wonderful time of the year is returning to The Land for the 2021 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays!


Disney has confirmed that the holiday overlay will return to Living with the Land this year. The overlay, known as “Merry and Bright Nights,” brings festive lights and props to the attraction, adding a splash of color to the ride through the pavilion’s greenhouses. The overlay has become a fan favorite over the years, and was included as part of the reduced offerings for the festival last year. You can see 2020’s edition in the video below.

Other returning features of the festival include the Candlelight Processional, which makes its triumphant comeback after being suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year, as well as storytellers around World Showcase and those delicious Holiday Kitchens. The 2021 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays runs November 26th through December 30th, 2021.
