Get ready to search World Showcase, as Olaf’s Holiday Tradition Expedition Scavenger Hunt is back for the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays.
Olaf’s Holiday Tradition Expedition Scavenger Hunt Map – $9.99
Maps are available for purchase at Creations Shop, Port of Entry and World Traveler.
The front of the map has spots for each of the general locations in World Showcase where each Olaf figure can be found.
The reverse side has stickers representing the items found in Olaf’s sleigh, along with a brief description of their significance. When a participant finds a figure, they can put the sticker of the item on the spot with the correct location. (If you don’t get it right or can’t finish it, fear not! Each map, regardless of how they’re used, entitles the purchaser to a prize, redeemable at the same locations where the map is sold through December 31 or while supplies last.)
The scavenger hunt is inspired by the 2017 animated short/holiday special “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” where Olaf collects items from the residents of Arendelle that represent their holiday traditions in the hopes of helping Anna and Elsa find a tradition of their own. This marks the third year the scavenger hunt has been offered, having previously appeared in 2020 and 2021.
While we don’t want to give the whole experience away, we’d like to share a few of our favorite spots.
Do you know where these locations are? Keep an eye out the next time you’re in EPCOT!
And when you’re all done (or have just had enough), head back to redeem your prize! This year, the prize is one of three small coin purses.
They’re made of a felt-like fabric, though they don’t exactly feel like felt, and each has a zipper on top and a clip on the side!
Though they’re all in different colors, they each have the same design on the back of an intricate snowflake.
Elsa works her wintry magic while Anna looks on on the light purple coin purse.
Sven flashes a smile on a seafoam green background, while the edge and clip are a dark red.
And finally, the scavenger hunt’s namesake, Olaf, gets his own blue coin purse.
Olaf’s Holiday Tradition Expedition Scavenger Hunt is just one component of the fun for the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays. Guests can also hear about celebrations from around the world through Storytellers, pay a visit to Santa Claus at the Odyssey Pavilion, sample global cuisine at Holiday Kitchens, and experience the story of the Nativity through music and a celebrity narrator during the Candlelight Processional.
