Disney Parks Just Dropped Holiday Desserts & The Pics Will Make You WEEP

Halloween is over, which means the Disney parks are moving on to their next big holiday celebrations. The Disney Parks Blog just shared a guide to all the food and dessert at the Disney Festival of Holidays, and fans of sweets will be particularly thrilled. Well, fans of sweets who are also planning on visiting a Disney park, at least.

The Disney Festival of Holidays is held at Disney California Adventure Park, which is part of Disneyland. According to the blog, the festival features "music, dance, and diverse cultural festivities", as well as a ton of food and drink options. The festival begins on November 9 and will go on until January 8.

For any east coast Disney fans out there, there is also a similar festival at Disney World. The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays takes place from November 19 to December 30. The Disney Parks Blog previously released the "Foodie Guide" for this one on October 25.

The food and drink options are not the same at both parks, and the way they're set up is different, too. The California Adventure Park has the Festive Food Marketplace, which includes 12 destinations. According to the blog, "You can even grab a Disney Festival of Holidays Tasting Passport at any of the marketplaces to guide you on your yummy holiday journey."

As for Epcot, it has 12 Holiday Kitchens all with different types of cuisine, such as the American Holiday Table, the L'Chaim! Holiday Kitchen, and the Shanghai Holiday Kitchen.

You can find the full listings of the food and beverages at California Adventure Park here and Epcot here, but for now, let's take a closer look at the desserts.
