The Epcot International Festival of the Arts will run through February 25, which means there’s plenty of time left to enjoy everything the festival has to offer – including some of the can’t-miss seminars offered at the Odyssey Festival Showplace.

This year’s seminar lineup includes art seminars in everything from photography to pop-up book design, as well as deep dives into different aspects of Disney history, including traditional Disney animation, 3D storytelling at Walt Disney World and more. Odyssey Festival Showplace seminars are included in theme park admission and no signups are required.

Earlier this month, Jeff Kurtti, author and Disney historian, appeared at the festival to discuss his new book, Travels With Walt, which features rare and never-before-published photographs along with eyewitness recollections and anecdotes detailing Walt’s frequent excursions around the globe.
