From History to Art to So Much More, Festival of the Arts Seminars Cover a Variety of Topics

The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is in full swing at Epcot. We have come to expect a variety of high-quality offerings with the seasonal festivals at Epcot and Festival of the Arts is no exception, and it does not disappoint. The event celebrates all of the arts including culinary, performing, and visual through dining, live performances, galleries, and seminars.

Throughout the festival, there are 30-minute daily seminars. Many of the seminars give us a glimpse into the past covering different aspects of Disney History. Others sessions treat our senses with music and visual art. Or, perhaps learn a new skill such as artful watermelon carving and how to create a pop-up book.

Recently, Jeff Kurtii was the speaker at the seminar Travels with Walt Disney: A Photographic Voyage Around the World. Kurtii is an author and Disney Historian. He spoke about his new book, Travels with Walt. The book is a photo album featuring images of Walt Disney’s travels around the world. The book contains many photos that are rare and even ones that have never been seen. One, in particular, is of Walt and Lillian on their Honeymoon. The photo is from Mt. Ranier National Park in Washington State. Kurti discusses his presentation and the seminars in a video.

The seminars are free of charge with your park admission. The sessions are held from 11:30 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. at the Odyssey Festival Showplace.  Not sure if your schedule will allow you to attend a specific session or not? No worries, you do not need to sign up in advance. The seminars are ongoing through the end of the festival on February 25, 2019.
