Festival of the Holidays arrived at Epcot on November 29th and we couldn't be more excited! With new menus and all kinds of festive fun, Festival of the Holidays is one of the more underrated festivals in our opinion, but that doesn't mean it should be missed. The cookie stroll is one of our favorite things at this festival because it involves cookies from all over the world showcase and is a great way to discover cookies you may have overlooked. Best of all, once you complete the cookie stroll, you'll receive a FREE Santa Mickey Sugar Cookie! Does Christmas get any more jolly than that? We doubt it.
How does the Cookie Stroll work?
Actually, it's super simple. Grab a Festival of the Holidays Passport (these are FREE!) and turn to the cookie stroll page, located near the back. Each time you stop at a booth with a designated cookie, you'll receive a stamp in your booklet. Collect all 5 stamps and you're eligible for your free cookie! It's that easy. And if you've completed the cookie stroll in the past, you'll be happy to know that the cookies are a little different this year.
Epcot Holiday Cookie Stroll Locations
Bavaria Holiday Kitchen at the Germany Pavilion Linzer Cookie
Who doesn't love a good Linzer cookie? This one is filled with raspberry jam and decorated with a gorgeous cutout snowflake. It doesn't get more classic than that!
American Holiday Table at the America Pavilion Gingerbread Cookie
If there's one thing we look forward to every holiday season, it's gingerbread! Gingerbread men, gingerbread lattes, gingerbread cake, you get the point. The adorable new Gingerbread man coming to this lovely cookie walk is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit!
Yukon Holiday Kitchen at the Canada Pavilion Peppermint Pinwheel Cookie
Peppermint is a staple flavor of the season, so we are expecting these pinwheel cookies to be as delicious as they are pretty! Complete with white and red pinwheel, and decorated with festive sprinkles around the rim, we can't wait to try this festive cookie!
Feast of the Three Kings near the Mexico Pavilion Chocolate Crinkle Cookie
Chocolate Crinkles are one of our favorite classic holiday cookies and we are so excited for it to come to the cookie stroll this year. A soft, chocolate cookie with a fudge center, topped with powdered sugar, this is sure to be a holiday favorite this year.
L'Chaim Holiday Kitchen between the Morocco and France Pavilions Black-and-White Cookie
The black and white cookie has returned this year for this stroll. Not only is it a classic but it's also delicious! Half white icing, half black, this cookie was a fan favorite last year.
Visit all 5 official cookie stroll locations, collect a stamp in your passport at each and head to the Sweets & Treats Holiday Kitchen to receive a FREE Santa Mickey Sugar Cookie.
Cookie Stroll Cookie Jar

Do I need a special ticket for the Cookie Stroll?
The Cookie stroll is part of the Festival of Holidays, so you'll only need a Walt Disney World Park ticket to enjoy the festival and the stroll. The only extra thing you'll have to pay for are the cookies!
