What is the Epcot International Festival of the Arts?

The Epcot Festival of the Arts is Disney’s way of combining the creativity of arts and food in only a way Disney can do!

Epcot Festival of the Arts Menu

Although it began only three years ago, the Festival of the Arts has become a huge part of the Disney Culture.

It is essentially a celebration of creativity.

Creativity, not within the generic definition of it as arousal of visual and auditory senses, but a perfect blend of all five senses ESPECIALLY WITH THE FOOD!

Now that you know what to expect from this unique festival, let’s go through what new food experiences are available this year.

  2. Then you will put the matching stamps inside your Festival Passport to match up with the location
