Now, more than ever is the time to start planning your trip to the Epcot International Festival of the Arts that will run Jan. 18– Feb. 25, 2019. The 39-day event offers a palette of immersive experiences that we can guarantee you won’t want to miss!

Immersing guests in the worlds of the visual, culinary and performing arts, Festival of the Arts is a feast for the senses. For the visual arts, interactive workshops and seminars are among the festival’s most popular experiences. You can learn artistic techniques from professionals skilled in floral design, ink and paint, photography, and more. Seminars typically run 30 minutes and are included with park admission; they can be reserved day-of at the Odyssey Festival Showplace.

Workshops are hands-on, interactive experiences that allow you an opportunity to create your own work of art to take home. Workshops run 75 minutes and are offered Friday-Monday for an additional fee. We have great news for you – you can book your favorite workshop experience starting today! Call (407) WDW-TOUR to book, and for more information on workshop and seminar offerings, visit ArtfulEpcot.com.

Also returning this year is the fan-favorite “Paint with a Disney Artist” experience. Offered select Fridays and Sundays, a talented Disney Artist will guide you in creating your own masterpiece! The event is perfect for seasoned painters and those just learning this beautiful art form. Bonus – continental breakfast is also included! For more information or to book your painting adventure, call (407) WDW-TOUR.

Now, let’s talk about the tastiest form of art…food! The festival will feature 13 Food Studios throughout Epcot, boasting menus of sweet and savory options that are sure to satisfy every palate.
