Not only will you be able to see, taste and listen to the best of the art world at the new Epcot International Festival of the Arts, you’ll be able to bring out your inner artist with select experiences available to book starting today.
Over the six weekends of the festival beginning Jan. 13, you can sign up for interactive workshops like the Gesture Drawing Class, led by former Disney animator Todd Bright. Gesture drawing of people is foundational practice for animators, storyboard artists, and directors. A single drawing tells a story. Todd’s Story Telling Drawings class will teach you the art of quick sketching from life.
Other select workshops include watercolor painting, mixed media art, calligraphy and floral arrangements. The Interactive Workshops are $39+tax each Friday-Monday of the Festival. A great benefit to Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members: 15 percent off the select experiences. You can call 407-WDW-TOUR for more information.
You can also make a reservation for a meal and performance combo: a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner, followed by a phenomenal Disney on Broadway inspired concert – nightly during the Festival from January 13 – February 20, 2017.
The concert series will pair Broadway talent with favorite songs from award-winning Disney shows such as The Lion King, Newsies and Aladdin. The Dining package includes a three-course meal or full buffet and priority seating at the 8:00 p.m. concert at participating Epcot restaurants. Prices range from $39-$69+ tax for adults, $23-$41+tax for children.
The festival runs Fridays through Mondays starting Jan. 13–Feb. 20. A complete list of offerings will be available online starting Jan. 6. You can book now by calling 407-WDW-DINE. Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members receive a 15 percent discount for this experience too. For more details about all of the select experiences, click here.
What experiences are you looking forward to during #ArtfulEpcot?
It took three different people to figure out how to book the workshops. Keep trying
How much are the art experiences?
I called the 407-WDW-PLAY number and they do not have any information on booking the workshops. We looked for over 50 minutes, I was able to book a concert package.
Will the dining packages be showing up on the website? I already have some ADR at Epcot that I may want to change over.
I called the 407-WDW-PLAY, but no one has any information on booking the workshops. Is there another number I should be calling?
Any Disney Visa card discounts?
