    Will Epcot host its festival of the arts in January? What are the dates? I’m trying to plan a trip

    Hiya Joni!

    Welcome to planDisney! We’re so happy you’re here.

    Like you, I absolutely love the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. Who am I kidding? I love ALL of the incredible festivals at EPCOT, but this just may be one of my favorites. Not only is it a treat for ALL the senses, with musical performances, gorgeous art galleries and delicious culinary creations that are also a feast for the eyes, but you really can’t beat the weather that time of year. I just love the slightly cooler temperatures, which make it easier to stroll around and enjoy all the festival offers without dying from the heat!

    Now, unfortunately, the dates for the 2023 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts have not yet been released. However, it generally starts in mid to late January and ends in mid to late February. So, to be safe, I would book between the last week of January and the first two weeks of February. But, of course, there is no way to guarantee the dates until they are officially announced.

    In the meantime, I recommend keeping a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog, where you’ll find the most up-to-date news and announcements about the festival. You’ll definitely want to look out for the festival Foodie Guide, which breaks down all of the menu items available at the outdoor kitchens, so you can make sure you don’t miss out on anything that strikes your fancy. I love to make a list on my phone to ensure I don’t forget anything.

    I hope you found this answer helpful, Joni! As you continue to plan for your visit, know that we are here to help you make the most of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. So, please visit us again with any questions you may have.
