The EPCOT’s International Festival of the Arts inspires guests with its global celebration of visual, culinary, and performing arts. It truly is a feast for the senses! The festival will run January 13-February 20. It’s a small window of time but packed with so much to see, do and hear! We feel like this festival makes for a perfect long weekend getaway. Let’s explore what’s in store for this year!
Culinary Arts -16 delectable Food Studios will serve up art-inspired menus appealing to a variety of palates.
The EPCOT Festival culinary team is putting the finishing touches on two new Food Studios. Moderne, located near Test Track presented by Chevrolet, will feature new mouthwatering avant-garde menu items. The other new Food Studio, Figment’s Inspiration Station at the Odyssey: Art, Food, and Little Sparks of Magic, promises to deliver treats and beverages bursting with vibrant colors and flavors.
Visual Arts – more than 100 Disney and visiting artists will showcase their eye-catching works of art.
The talent of these artists is just awe-inspiring. It is easy to spend an afternoon just strolling through the displays. Even YOU can test out your artistic talent! Guests of all ages can express their creative side by learning to draw a Disney character at Animation Academy, leaving their own creative mark at Expression Section: A Paint by Number Mural and helping Figment learn about art on a scavenger hunt around World Showcase.
Performing Arts – The DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series will feature talented entertainers performing Disney songs live at America Gardens Theatre.
This concert series happens every evening and usually 2-3 times each evening. Performers include those that play in roles in Disney musicals on Broadway. A list of entertainers is coming soon.
More details will be released as the festival approaches. If you’re as excited as we are about Festival of the Arts, let’s get you there! Reach out for your no obligation vacation chat HERE.
