They won't have to to wait too long, because on Monday, Disney announced that Epcot's annual Holidays Around the World event will add global flavors to its offerings.

The new holiday eats join Holidays Around the World at Epcot staples like the candlelight processional (featuring celebrity narrators Neil Patrick Harris, Isabella Rossellini and Edward James Olmos, among others), seasonal entertainment at each country's pavilion, a holiday-themed version of its Illuminations fireworks show and more. The event runs from Friday, Nov. 28, through Tuesday, Dec. 30.
