Epcot International Festival of the Arts

Last but not least, Passholders will not want to miss out on the excitement at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts.

Details to come on the Passholder Facebook page and the Disney Parks Blog soon.


  • Will the discount apply to food purchased at the Brown Derby lounge?

  • I am a passholder who lives in Texas. My trip isn’t until February. Will these special items still be for sale, just not part of this exciting event? I know I have missed out on so many passholder items because I can’t be there on the day they go on sale. I’m hoping with Disneyland cracking down on resellers, maybe some of us will get a chance.

  • Will there be a v.i.passholder perks for Disneyland resort?? Kind of bummed that WDW is getting all these special perks and events while Disneyland resort is left out 🙁

  • I sure do miss the AP Days we had at DLR. any word on if we will be getting these back??

  • Sounds like a Figment magnet!

  • Right in the article “With ‘one little spark of inspiration’ we’ll soon debut the newest pass holder magnet…”

  • Is there going to be a picture of this Passholder magnet soon? Asking for a friend.
