EPCOT Festival of the Arts

This EPCOT Festival is a celebration of different kinds of art — culinary, visual, and performance! So, along with a variety of delicious dishes, you can also find tons of entertainment around the park to enjoy. We’re breaking down ALL the entertainment you can find at the park during the Festival of the Arts.

Disney on Broadway

Perhaps the most well-known entertainment option is the Disney on Broadway Concert series, a fan-favorite that is returning this year. The concert features various Broadway performers singing songs from classic Disney movies.

This returning entertainment option features chalk drawings of your favorite Disney characters in the World Showcase pavilion where they best belong. They are a great photo op, with some proving more challenging to spot than others!

There are also TONS of new options this year to check out that are different from years past.

Artful Photo Ops

Want to become a work of art? You can pose in a number of the Artful Photo Ops around the park.

After finding all the Figments, you can turn in the map to win a prize! Last year the prize was small character puzzles, and this year the prize is a figurine you can paint! We chose Minnie Mouse, but there were other character options you could grab as well!
