Epcot Festival of the Arts Food
As your virtual tour guide through this amazing festival, I need to confess that my favorite thing at Epcot is — the art of food! This year’s culinary delights are fantabulous. That’s no secret!
At “Let Them Eat Art”, guests can indulge in artisan-crafted delicacies that treat the eyes just as well as the taste buds. From foodie workshops to professional chef-hosted ‘food studios’. These creations are sure to rival Picasso’s works! At the Deconstructed Dish, guests will taste delicious dishes at their most simple — yet elegant! — level. Enjoy delights such as the Deconstructed Reuben, ‘Rainboba’, and more dazzling the menu! At the Artist’s Table, fans of a savory palate will be pleased by the menu which features perfect plates such as the pan-seared scallops and beef wellington.
At Pop Eats!, guests will find that their food would be better-suited against the backdrop of an Andy Warhol painting! These colorful treats, such as the red, yellow and blue Almond Frangipane Cake, are sure to delight the eyes and please the sense of taste.
Festival of the Arts Concert Series
Alongside the culinary arts, the performing arts at Epcot’s 2020 International Festival of the Arts are getting a major upgrade. Firstly, the Disney on Broadway Concert Series is back and better than ever! This year’s star-studded lineup is the best we’ve ever seen. Broadway stars like Florida native Kissy Simmons (Nala from The Lion King: The Musical), Heidi Blickenstaff (Ursula in The Little Mermaid: The Musical) and Liana Hunt (Newsies on Broadway) are set to appear, as well as a plethora of other performers you aren’t going to want to miss!
Whats New At Epcot in 2020?
In addition to this, keep your eyes peeled for Characters Off The Page, a new art series scattered around Epcot. You’ll spy a Frida Khalo-esque self portrait of Donald Duck in The World Showcase’s Mexico Pavilion, a dwarf-painted portrait of Princess Snow White in the Germany Pavilion, and more! This is just a taste of the art that has been infused into the Epcot park for this year’s festival.
In addition to all of this excitement surrounding the Festival of the Arts, some exciting changes are coming to Epcot this spring as well! A new 10-minute short film, appropriately named ‘Awesome Planet’, will open at the Land Pavillion theater, showcasing the beauty and amazement of our natural Earth.
In the France Pavillion, a brand-new Beauty and the Beast sing-along is opening, and it’s unlike any you’ve ever seen! This film is narrated by Angela Lansbury, who voices Mrs. Potts in the original movie, and it will be run alongside Impressions de France, which is also set to receive a 4-k upgrade.
Lastly but not least, the Canada Pavilion is getting its very own film! Award-winning actors Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara (who both happen to be Canada natives) star in Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360, alongside a new soundtrack by Canadian composer Andrew Lockington.
With all of the excitement abound in Epcot. This is the perfect time to plan a trip to the parks!
