Walt Disney World’s First International Festival of the Arts Opens Today at Epcot

We previously announced details about Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts and the various entertainment lineup. It has all been building up to today, when the event finally opens for the very first time.  This is the first year for this event, and based on how popular the other festivals have been over the years, we expect it is very likely that this one will stick around, too.  There will be performances from Broadway performers, art on display, various culinary demonstrations and more.  There will also be commemorative merchandise available for purchase at the event, too.


Be sure to check out all of the limited food selections available around the park.  There will be limited time dishes and food kiosks throughout the park with samplings that focus on all of the arts.  There are also other event experiences that are available for an additional purchase that allow you to do things like make pottery, paint, cook, etc.  There is so much to do at the event, that you won’t want to miss it.  Be sure to tell us here what you think of the event!

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!
