The Festival of the Arts has arrived over in Epcot! The festival focuses on arts of all varieties, ranging from culinary, to performing, to visual. From interactive art experiences, to Disney character portraits, there is so much to see and do at this year’s festival.
Of course, since we’re in Disney World, the Festival of the Arts wouldn’t be complete without a little extra magic sprinkled in. That’s right — Epcot has hidden characters around the park, and today we’re checking out where you can find some of ’em!
The official name for this ADORABLE touch of magic is “Chalk full of Character” — and you can see Figment near the World Showcase entrance inviting you to play along!
Taking a stroll around the World Showcase, you’ll start to recognize some familiar faces! Stopping by the Mexico Pavilion, you might spot a familiar face — it’s Dante from Coco!
While he’s pictured as a regular dog on one side, on the other you can spot spirit Dante! The beloved colorful pup is showcased in amazing detail on the wall of the pyramid.
Over in the Morocco Pavilion, you can see Abu from Aladdin, who was painted in a way that makes it look like he’s grabbing for the pot hanging on the wall.
This one might be a little harder to spot! Over in the Italy Pavilion, it’s easy to miss this little guy painted on top of the exposed brick.
But, if you wish upon a star, you’ll be able to see Jiminy Cricket himself!
There’s also Pascal from Tangled over in the Germany Pavilion, and it looks like he’s getting into the artistic spirit of the festival.
We also spotted the ever-changing Pascal in another section of the Germany Pavilion, this time rocking a different set of colors!
In the UK Pavilion, Robin Hood, Little John and Skippy are hiding out on the wall behind some bushes!
Also in the UK Pavilion, Peter Pan’s shadow looks like it’s trying to sneak in through the window. Maybe the Darlings are inside?
At the America Pavilion, Amos from the Disney short Ben and Me is hidden above a window!
The little mouse is Benjamin Franklin’s helper in the classic short, so it’s fitting that he’s been painted with a key and kite!
One of our favorite finds might be towards the waterfall in the Canada Pavilion. Can you spot it?
That’s right — it’s Koda from Brother Bear, getting ready to munch on some salmon right by the water!
The Snowgies from Frozen are having a blast playing around on the wall of this building in the Norway Pavilion.
Just look at those cute little guys!
Also in the Norway Pavilion, you can spot Grand Pabbie from Frozen, whose cleverly hidden above the seating area of Kringla Bakeri og Kafe.
Duffy and Gelatoni are right at home in the Japan Pavilion, which is fitting as they are two of the mascots over at Tokyo DisneySea! It looks like they’re painting a picture of Mickey Mouse on the beam of the building.
And who are those little guys prancing along the wall?
Why, it’s Marie, Tolouse, and Berlioz, of course! The Parisian kittens from The Aristocats are right at home in the France Pavilion.
The France Pavilion is an especially popular one for Disney characters! We also found Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast.
And, of course, you can’t not include Remy in the France Pavilion!
Remy is holding some raspberries, maybe getting ready to bake something delicious?
Yup! Right across the way, Remy’s brother Emile is indulging in a delicious raspberry macaron.
In the China Pavilion, Little Brother from Mulan is keeping busy chasing a bone on a stick!
Nearby, Mushu and Crickee are cooking up all sorts of trouble!
The hidden characters around Epcot might just be one of our favorite elements of the Festival of the Arts! Were you able to spot them all?
