What is the Epcot International Festival of the Arts?

Epcot Festival of the Arts Menu

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!

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.

NEW Epcot Festival of the Arts Experience – Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine

Festival of the Arts Live Art
Festival of the Arts Live Art

If you have done the Cookie Stroll during the Epcot Festival of the Holidays, then you’ll be familiar with this foodie challenge.

On this Festival of the Arts adventure, you can eat your way around the world trying different colorful dishes.

How does the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine work?

  1. First you will have to buy 5 delicious dishes from the designated locations
  2. Then you will put the matching stamps inside your Festival Passport to match up with the location
  3. Finally, you’ll bring your completed Festival Passport to Decadent Delights for a “free” colorful culinary prize

Hipster Power Tip: You don’t have to do the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine in one day. You can split up the challenge throughout your visits to the Festival of Arts. Just be sure to use the same Festival Passport and don’t lose it.
