    A Full List is still forthcoming, but more details have been announced for the new event's "Holiday Kitchens":

    Epcot has announced that the annual Holidays Around the World event will not return for the 2017 Holiday Season. A new "Festival" event will debut combining elements of Holidays Around the World with expanded "Holiday Kitchens":

    Holidays Around the World is transforming into Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays from November 19 to December 30, 2017.

    An International Yuletide Extravaganza

    Discover a festival like no other, featuring the joyous holiday traditions of our 11 World Showcase nations. Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays surrounds you in the wondrous sights, sounds and flavors of the season as celebrated by cultures near and far.

    Come, delight in stirring live musical productions; savor seasonal food & beverage specialties at the expanded Holiday Kitchens; and take a festive global tour as costumed performers bring time-honored traditions to life throughout World Showcase!

    Chip & Dale’s Christmas Tree Spree

    Chip and Dale are collecting ornaments for their Christmas tree—and they need your help! To get started, simply purchase a map and sticker from select merchandise locations, including Pin Central, Disney Traders and World Traveler at International Gateway.

    As you travel around World Showcase, be on the lookout for Chip and Dale as they gather ornaments from holiday decorations in each World Showcase pavilion. Once you spot them, add the corresponding ornament sticker to your map. Then, take your completed map to Disney Traders and exchange it for a festive surprise, courtesy of Chip and Dale!

    Maps are $6.99 plus tax, and are available throughout Holidays Around the World at Epcot while supplies last.

    Note: Valid theme park admission is required.

    A Taste of the Holidays for Everyone!

    Explore the tastes of the holidays around the world as each marketplace celebrates a different nation:

    American Holiday Table


    From the tender roast turkey to the tasty pork tenderloin, memories of grandma’s kitchen will come flooding back when you visit this salute to the great flavors of America.

    Feast of the Three Kings


    Dine like royalty as you enjoy scrumptious foods and delicious drinks from the Caribbean at this holiday kiosk inspired by the story of the Magi. While you nibble, learn about the celebration of Three Kings’ Day, El Día De Los Reyes Magos!

    Holiday Sweets and Treats


    From decadent desserts to savory snacks and merry libations, you’ll be in full swing of the season at this festively-appointed holiday kiosk. Enjoy the view here at Showcase Plaza, meet up with friends or just take a moment to unwind.

    Mexico

    Watch mariachi dancers celebrating a Feliz Navidad, while imbibing on the zippy spices of Mexican cuisine. The carnitas tacos and horchata margaritas will have you singing, “olé!”
    Additional "Holiday Kitchens" are planned to be announced as the event draws near.

    I hope there is a "Holiday Kitchen" in China for Chinese New Year. They did a lion dance there last December, so hopefully that will come back along with some new treats to eat!

    Before reading this thread, I told DW I thought they'd use the kiosks for Christmas season.
