Seminars Celebrate Art, Disney History & More at Walt Disney World’s Epcot International Festival of the Arts

The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is underway at Walt Disney World.  The event will run through February 25th, 2019.  Guests still have time to check out the festival and some of the amazing seminars that will be offered at the Odyssey Festival Showplace. There are so many great seminars that include  everything from photography to pop-up book design, as well as deep dives into different aspects of Disney history, including traditional Disney animation, 3D storytelling at Walt Disney World and more.  You will definitely want to check these out if you enjoy all types of art!


Earlier this month, Jeff Kurtti, author and Disney historian, appeared at the festival to discuss his new book, Travels With Walt, which features rare and never-before-published photographs along with eyewitness recollections and anecdotes detailing Walt’s frequent excursions around the globe.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
