    Hello, Do you know when (approx) they make the announcement for the dates of the Festival of the Arts (2024)? I already have a trip booked for Jan 12-17 but if I need to change the dates I will :). Thank you so much!

    Why hello there Shannon and welcome back to planDisney!

    We've been looking at all of the questions you've asked the planDisney Panel over the years; can you believe it's been over a decade now? I'm thrilled to be able to answer this one for you, not only as a major fan of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts but also as one of the Panelists on the Special Episode of the planDisney Podcast where Amiyrah, Aena and I discussed all of the greatest things that we enjoyed about the festival!

    I had a look back at the official announcements over the past few years to see if I could determine when the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts dates are released and found that there was a tendency from as recent as last year to the year following its debut in 2017 to make sure the dates and information were out there for guests at the end of October into early November. In more recent years, this is now often followed up with a preview of the food offerings to look forward to in the Disney Eats Foodie Guide! (While there's no telling for sure when this will be announced this year, it certainly makes sense for this to happen as the Halloween season ends to give Walt Disney World Resort guests something to look forward to again after the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays.) 

    Now many festival fans always seem to clamor over anything to do with Figment like the infamous popcorn bucket phenomenon of recent years, and I'm excited to see the result of all of the exciting construction happening over near Journey Into Imagination With Figment! You can bet that folks would be thrilled with the prospect of being able to meet and greet their favorite imaginary purple dragon, and I highly recommend keeping your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any upcoming news and updates leading up to your trip in January. In the meantime, we'll be looking forward to the next time you return to planDisney for any more questions that our team can help you with!

    Here's to celebrating creativity and cuisine on your upcoming visit in 2024!
