Epcot’s newest seasonal festival is just around the corner so get ready to unleash your artistic side! Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts is a 39-day celebration of art, entertainment, and food from around the world. Featuring interactive workshops and seminars as well as Broadway performances and gourmet dishes. This year’s festival will be open from January 18 through February 25 (access is included in park admission). Recently, the 2019 Festival Passport was released and it includes some new and broadened experiences!
Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts began in 2017. It has quickly expanded its reach since becoming a hit with guests in the past two years. The combination of visual, performing and culinary arts creates a fun and relaxing experience for all ages. This year’s enlarged offerings include even more of the Disney on Broadway performances we all love. The crowd favorite will be available 7 days a week this year. Each show features a pair of Broadway stars performing Disney selections from award-winning shows like The Lion King.
Don’t forget to stimulate your other senses while enjoying the art this year. Disney will have 13 Food Studios placed throughout the park. The booths will feature a larger selection of bites and sips from around the world than in years past. You can enjoy delicacies like beef wellington, smoked salmon and almond frangipane cake while touring the artistry.
My favorite parts of the festival are the hands-on experiences and seminars. Guests can participate in sessions like “Paint with a Disney Artist” or hunt for an art-loving purple dragon. Giving “Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt” a try is a great way to get kids involved in the fun. Be sure to also grab a paintbrush and help add your talents to the mural wall in World Showcase Plaza. Check out the full Festival Passport below for all of this year’s events and offerings!
