Sunday was the first day of Epcot’s Festival of the Holidays, and this year, they are offering a brand new kind of scavenger hunt– the Cookie Stroll! The concept of this scavenger hunt is both fun and delicious. Outdoor kitchens in the World Showcase have various cookies, and you earn a stamp on your Festival Passport each time you try one. Once you’ve finished trying all the cookies, you earn a “completer” Mickey Christmas cookie.
There is also a Festival of the Holidays cookie jar which makes both a great keepsake and also provides an easy way to carry your cookies if you don’t want to eat them all at one time. It costs $19.99 and can be found at MouseGear or any of the Festival merchandise kiosks.
The first cookie stop is in Canada at the Yukon Holiday Kitchen. Here, you will find the Gold Chocolate Chip Cookie. It is a basic chocolate chip cookie with a chocolate drizzle and gold sprinkles.
Between Morocco and France, you will find a Black and White cookie from the L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen. This one gets a bit messy on warm days!
Sugar cookies are the cookie of choice in The American Adventure. This one has a white chocolate drizzle with red, green, and white sprinkles. It can be purchased from the American Holiday Table. The kitchen is right beside the Santa and Mrs. Claus meet and greet, so this makes a nice snack while you’re waiting to tell Santa your Christmas wishes.
Germany is home to the peppermint sugar cookie. This is actually the same cookie served at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in the Storybook Circus area; this one just has a drizzle and sprinkles. You can find it at the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen.
The most colorful of the cookies is the Red and Green Chocolate Chip cookie at the Feast of the Three Kings in Showcase Plaza. This one has a chocolate drizzle with red and green sprinkles.
After trying (or at least buying) all the cookie treats, you can return the passport to the Holiday Sweets and Treats kitchen in Showcase Plaza. There is a special window dedicated to giving the completer cookie, so you don’t have to wait in the ordering line, which can get pretty long. This cookie is Mickey-shaped with chocolate dipped ears and red and green sprinkles. How festive! It even comes with a glass of milk for the ultimate cookie experience!
Each of the cookies included on the Cookie Stroll costs $2.00. Since you don’t have to pay for the completer cookie, you get 6 cookies for $10, which is a pretty economical way to snack at Disney. The cookies are fairly basic but still yummy. This makes a great family activity and gives the little ones something to anticipate as they make their way around the World Showcase.
