    HELLO! We will be visiting WDW during International Festival of the Arts. Will the "Dine with an Imagineer"Experience return for this event? Will any other special experiences be offered during the International Festival of the Arts?

    Welcome to planDisney Patricia. Thanks for stopping in with your question today. This one is my favorite festival of all. 

    I’ll be happy to give you an update on the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. This artful gathering of all types of expressions is happening from January 12 through February 19, 2024. Unfortunately there are no announcements of the “Dine with an Imagineer” experience. There are other dining experiences available. The DISNEY ON BROADWAY Dining packages will open on December 19, 2023. Some of my recommendations for the restaurant would be Garden Grill Restaurant, Le Cellier Steakhouse, and Regal Eagle Smokehouse. Another cool experience is at Animation Academy held daily at 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. in America Gardens Theatre. You will learn from some of the best animators how to draw your favorite Disney characters. 

    I love the Chalk Art by the professionals, but there are fun opportunities if you have little ones. Kids Chalk Art is held from 11:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the bridge to World Showcase Plaza. If you are in it for the snacks and food, my top plate is hands down my favorite thing I have ever eaten on vacation. The Red Wine-braised Beef Short Rib with parsnip purée, broccolini, baby tomatoes, and balsamic glaze is something I enjoy at least 2 plates of. It is located at Pastoral Palate this year if you are interested in taking my recommendation. 

    Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news and updates for the festival. Visit us again anytime at and we will be happy to help. 

    Have a magical stay, 

    Jeremy A.
