2019 Epcot International Festival of the Arts Open Now through Feb. 25
Look for art here, there and everywhere at the 2019 Epcot® International Festival of the Arts as it returns for a third year of creative family fun, now through Feb. 25, 2019.
This year for the first time, the popular Disney on Broadway Concert Series is presented daily during the festival, with performances at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m. at the America Gardens Theatre stage. That’s 117 shows, featuring pairs of Broadway stars who’ll sing favorite songs from award-winning Disney on Broadway productions like “The Lion King,” “Mary Poppins” and “Frozen.” The lineup rotates weekly:
- Kerry Butler (“Beauty and the Beast”) and Kevin Massey (“Tarzan”)
- Meredith Inglesby (“The Little Mermaid”) and Steve Blanchard (“Beauty and the Beast”) NEW
- Arielle Jacobs and Adam Jacobs (“Aladdin”) NEW
- Heidi Blickenstaff (“Freaky Friday”) and Gavin Lee (“Mary Poppins”) NEW
- Ashley Brown (“Mary Poppins”) and Josh Strickland (“Tarzan”)
- Kissy Simmons and Alton Fitzgerald White (“The Lion King”)
Guests can guarantee their seats by booking a Disney on Broadway Concert Series Dining Package for breakfast, lunch or dinner at a participating Epcot restaurant.
Plus, guests of the festival can taste, and taste some more, around the World Showcase Promenade where 13 Food Studios feature bites and sips of culinary magic that take food art to a whole new level. Guests can enjoy smoked salmon and cream gateau with egg yolk cream, micro herbs and – wait for it – paddlefish caviar at The Painter’s Palate. Or they can devour delectable diversions at Decadent Delights: the lemon and blood orange tart and the white chocolate and purple sweet potato mousse with caramel, coconut and maple meringue.
Also during the festival, guests can step inside an Artful Photo Op iconic painting. They can make their artistic mark as they pick up a paintbrush and add to the paint-by-number mural along World Showcase Plaza. Guests can also experience the astonishing talent of performing artists who showcase gravity-defying feats, acrobatics and other skills. They can join Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt; maps can be purchased at select merchandise locations. They can visit tastefully curated gallery exhibitions, and meet over 100 artists who will be appearing throughout the Festival in over 30 locations around Epcot. And they can take in a high-energy performance by watching visual artists paint favorite Disney characters live onstage.
Guests can also join a complimentary seminar led by a true pro with specialties ranging from photography and cosmetology to watermelon carving and even the art of Disney topiary. Or, for a small fee, they can sign up for an interactive workshop with one of many artists booked Fridays through Mondays to give them a creative hands-on experience and walk away with their own memento.
Now, more than ever is the time to visit the 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Arts.
