Day 5: Festival of The Holidays / H&H@ TP 2017

Day 5 of Hibiscus & Holly At The Poly 2017, the latest of my Disney Trip Reports, is here! Today we are at Epcot for the Epcot International Festival of The Holidays in World Showcase. We spend most of the day here before heading back to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to watch the Happily Every After fireworks from the beach..

The Trip Report Index tells you a bit about the planning of this trip, as well as some info about me and my family (the Cast Members!) In short you have me, Michelle; Steve, my husband, and Liam, my son. It also, of course, has the full list of days for Hibiscus & Holly At The Poly 2017.

We took the Monorail from Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), which is just a quick walk from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, over to Epcot today for the Epcot International Festival of The Holidays.

We were really looking forward to visiting the Pavilions in Epcot World Showcase where the Festival is held. It used to be called Holidays Around The World, but they changed the name this year for some reason. I think maybe to tie in with the other three festivals that they have during the year (Food & Wine, Arts, and Flower & Garden)?

Before catching the Monorail we had to go through security and bag check. I spoke about the security situation at TTC back on Day 2, and when visiting Epcot from TTC. This is where it is mildly annoying as you have to go through security twice – once at the Transportation and Ticket Center, and then again when you get to Epcot. It may be a different set up since our visit, and I hope it is. Who wants to line up twice for the same thing?!
