    I will be visiting Disney World during the Festival of the Arts. What are some suggestions for things to do during the Festival. Also, do you have any suggestions for eating at the different booths? Thank you!

    Hi Denise,

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you for your question! Your vacation will be here before you know it! 

    EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is a really fun celebration and a great way to kick of the year. Looks like you’ll be arriving right around the start of the Festival! 

    When it comes to the food and Culinary Arts, you’ll want to stay tuned to the Walt Disney World Resort website as well as Disney Parks Blog to see the specific booths that will be featured this year. In the past, the booths have lined the World Showcase with a few booths in the middle of EPCOT as well. Typically, there is a pocket guide that has all that's featured in the Festival, from the booths to performances. You’ll want to pick one up once you enter the Theme Park or at any of the merchandise locations. This guide is also a great way to keep up with all that you do!

    Of course, one of the main features of the Festival is the visual art. There are visual artists who do amazing chalk drawings that seem to leap off the ground! You can also purchase art from different artists throughout the Park. One of my favorites is the paint by number mural that’s usually located around the beginning of the World Showcase. This will allow you and your guests to be a part of the art by receiving a small amount of paint and adding that paint to the corresponding number on a portion of the large canvas. Super cool for all ages!

    Don’t forget about the performing arts! EPCOT also has the Disney on Broadway Series where you and your guests can hear some of your favorite songs live on stage. I got to see this performance for the first time earlier this year and I was literally dancing in my seat. You’ll definitely want to see one of these shows and there are different Broadway performers performing every night, so review this list to see which show will fit best in your schedule.

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your upcoming trip and time at the Festival. If you have any other planning or vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
