    We want to take part in the Intl Festival of the Arts and all the fun, yummy food! But is there a cost for each and every food item available? Or are these items individually priced? What about the dining plan, can you use your snacks/meals for these?

    Hi Kara, Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can tell that you're oh so excited about the Epcot International Festival of the Arts. Introduced last year, the 2018 version is filled with performances, interactive art, and culinary art! And the best part of this art is that the majority of all this excitement is included in the price of your Epcot admission!

    Specifically regarding the various food studios, each item that you wish to sample is an additional individual charge. Most food options, from that gorgeous looking artist palate cookie to a 'Trio of Croissant Doughnuts' range in prices between $4.75 and $14. Drinks range in price from $4.50 for artisinal ales to $15 for beautiful bubbles. There are even drinks in the $15 to $30 range, but those are either served in souvenir glasses or are very special glasses of wine and champaign.

    I do have more good news, Kara. It looks like the food dishes in the $4.75 to $10 range, which appear to be the majority of food dishes, count as Disney Dining Plan snack credits! Remember, you get two snack credits per night per person, and you can use as many credits per day as you'd like. As an example, a five night stay between two people on any plan would be 20 snacks total; that's MORE than enough entitlements needed to try something from every booth.

    Pro Tips - share portions so you don't fill up so quickly, and to really get to try everything. Also, you can charge anything that doesn't count as a snack credit to your MagicBand.

    I hope this helped your planning, Kara, and I hope you have the best time at this festival!
