Take a Look At The Upcoming 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts


It’s almost time for the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts to start at Walt Disney World! The event for 2021 will be adjusted for COVID-19 and will be a “Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts” and will run from January 8 – February 22.

This year there will be more than 100 Disney and visiting artists work on display. You can also join in on the large paint-by-number murals that are very popular.

Disney did get clearance to do the famous painting photo ops again. They are a lot of fun!

There will be food and festival merchandise as well.

What’s new for 2021

This year they can’t do the Broadway singer shows they usually do so the “Voices of Liberty will take centerstage at America Gardens Theatre with a brand-new showcase – The Disney Songbook. From “When You Wish Upon a Star” to “Let It Go,” the ensemble will perform Disney songs and celebrate the artistry of Disney composers and lyricists.

Live acts are returning! 

“Over at World Showplace, you can catch live performances by “Art Defying Gravity,” a spectacle of thrilling strength acts, and “Visual Art in Performance,” a high-energy, onstage visual artist who paints favorite Disney characters before your eyes in just a matter of minutes.”

The Food Studios will return!

Food Studios located around World Showcase are where you can view – and eat – great works of art. Vibrante & Vívido Food Studio, a new location between France and Morocco, will feature a mouthwatering (and photo-ready) chilled seafood cocktail with octopus, scallops, shrimp, black garlic aïoli, tomato coconut sauce and serrano lime oil. Or, indulge on Blue Corn Pupusa stuffed with cheese and topped with shredded pork, guajillo and árbol chile sauce, cabbage slaw and aji amarillo crema. Keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for a Festival Foodie Guide coming soon!

There will be a Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine

Use your “Festival Passport as a guide to purchase five vibrant food items and receive a complimentary, tasty technicolor treat.”

Figment’s Brush with the Masters

Also returning this year is the popular Figment’s Brush with the Masters scavenger hunt around the World Showcase–” inviting you to help Figment learn about art on a scavenger hunt around World Showcase; you will be able to purchase a map and stickers for the family-friendly hunt at a variety of merchandise locations.”


I can’t wait to learn more. I really like the Festival of the Arts and EPCOT has always been my favorite park!
