Epcot is always buzzing with festivals and events. One of the most exciting times of the year for those who appreciate creativity and aesthetics is the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, and Walt Disney World has just dropped some details about the 2020 event!
The Festival of the Arts will take place from January 17th through February 24th and will be 39 days of gloriously artistic food, entertainment, and hands-on experiences for guests.
Returning this year is the Disney on Broadway Concert Series, featuring Broadway stars such as Kissy Simmons and Alton Fitzgerald White (”The Lion King”), Heidi Blickenstaff (”The Little Mermaid” and ”Freaky Friday”), Gavin Lee (”Mary Poppins”), Ashley Brown (”Mary Poppins” and ”Beauty and the Beast”), along with many others and some yet to be announced! The shows take place in the America Gardens Theatre, with three daily performances. Although entry to the show is included with park admission, the best way to guarantee a seat is to sign up for the Disney on Broadway Dining Package. This will not only allow partakers to seat themselves before standby guests (therefore gaining a better view), but they’ll also be able to experience one of Epcot’s amazing restaurants.
Other experiences during the 2020 Festival of the Arts will include Paint with a Disney Artist, a demonstrated artistic experience, and the World Showcase: Destinations Discovered, which is a guided tour. Both of these are premium opportunities and are available at an additional cost.
Guests who’d rather steer clear of extra fees can still enjoy many experiences during the Festival, including fun photo ops scattered around the park, helping to paint a wall mural along World Showcase Plaza, a Figment scavenger hunt, watching visiting Disney artists create new works of art, and so much more!
Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can begin booking dining packages and workshops as of November 13th. General bookings begin on November 14th.
