Epcot International Festival Of The Arts | Artful Exclusives & Experiences You Cant Miss
Epcot International Festival Of The Arts is a magical fest featuring edible culinary art, visual art, and performance art to delight all of your senses. The fest which runs daily at Epcot until February 19, has magical experiences around every corner… or should I say “around the world”? I’ve got a list of artful exclusives and experiences for all ages you can’t miss when visiting Walt Disney World.
Disney on Broadway Concert Series will delight you as Disney on Broadway stars perform your favorite Disney songs from award-winning Broadway shows, right before your very own eyes. With voices so magical, you might not ever be prepared to “Let It Go” to venture home from the happiest place on earth. The Disney on Broadway Concert Series has performance dates every Friday through Monday. Showtimes are 5:30 PM, 6:45 PM and 8:00 PM. Find the full scheduled lineup of star performances on Disney.com
Animation academy offers a complimentary drawing class lead by a real Disney artist. We’ve attended several classes which walk you along step by step to replicate Disney animations. This is a fun activity to do with children and then take your artwork home with you as a souvenir. Attend seminars and workshops to learn tips, tricks, and the basic techniques of art.
My favorite seminar, Trailblazing Ladies of Disney Animations is hosted by Mindy Johnson. She is also the author of “Ink & Paint – The Women of Walt Disney’s Animation.” Mindy Johnson’s research and vast knowledge of the progression of animation at What Disney is utterly fascinating. The information presented during this seminar was informative and entertaining to discover how the women behind the scenes working at Disney were the backbone of animation.
You don’t want to miss Art Defying Gravity at the Fountain View Plaza. Watch with amazement as performers exhibit strength and skill to defy gravity with some of the most spectacular performances I’ve ever seen in person.
Additional entertainment includes local Central Florida marching bands, jazz ensembles, and art groups performing during the festival through February 19, 2018.
Epcot International Festival Of The Arts new experience features you as the main subject in an artful masterpiece! Use Disney PhotoPass to capture moments throughout Epcot as you become the main subject in famous artwork from around the world including the “Mona Lisa”!

I highly recommend purchasing a Memory Maker One Day in the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to attending so you can commemorate this priceless experience.
