The annual Christmas tree featuring references to the various World Showcase pavilions has arrived at EPCOT. This year, the tree also has extra special Disney100 ornaments in honor of the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.
EPCOT Christmas Tree
The Christmas tree is at the end of the promenade leading from World Celebration to World Showcase, overlooking the lagoon.
A blue angel is holding a globe on top of the tree. It’s wrapped in gold garland.
The Disney100 ornaments look like snowglobes with shiny reflective bases.
Inside the globes are Disney100 medallions.
The other ornaments include large jingle bells, baubles featuring country flags, and banners with holiday greetings in different languages.
There are also plain gold, purple, green, and blue baubles.
The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will be from November 24 to December 30, 2023. This all-day festival will feature Holiday Kitchens, Storytellers, the Candlelight Processional, and more.
