There is something to be said about the International Festival of the Arts at Epcot. There are so many reasons to love it! Delicious food presented so uniquely by the talented culinary artists of Walt Disney World Resort with small crowds, comfortable weather, and a slower pace are just a few! While you can enjoy many arts at this festival- paintings, live sculptures, music, iconic Disney masterpieces, and interactive workshops, I always look most forward to the culinary arts! I prefer the food quality and presentation at this festival over all the other Epcot festivals throughout the year. While there are fewer kiosks, I believe in quality over quantity!

If you’re new to this festival, here are the details. You’ll find all festival-related events and kitchens in the World Showcase and Future World at Epcot. The festival will run daily January 17 – February 24, 2020. The food studios are open from 11 AM – 9 PM. Entry to the festival is included in your park ticket which you must have to enter the park and attend on your selected day. Alcohol will only be served to Guests 21 and older.

I am so excited to share these festival menus that were just released on the Disney website! Check out all the items below and note “GF” for gluten/wheat-friendly, and “KA” for kid-approved. There are 12 Food Studios plus additional food and beverage locations that take culinary arts to the next level with scrumptious, imaginative dishes to look forward to this year!
