Every January Walt Disney World welcomes artists and artisans to the International Festival of the Arts at Epcot. Every year we see new foods, new artists and a daily concert series. Since January weather in Florida is usually mild, if you’re looking for an easy breezy Disney vacation, this may be it! Wondering what’s new at the Festival of the Arts at Epcot, Walt Disney World? Here’s everything you have to look forward to.
The Walt Disney World Festival of the Arts
New Artists at the Festival of the Arts
You can see new chalk art on the midway between Future World and the World Showcase and performance artists at the stage. We love the gilded statues that come alive. So your job is to stand there and wait until they do. New to the festival we also found little characters painted all over the buildings throughout the world showcase. There’s a special character in every country so keep an eye out!

Festival of the Arts Food
While the food at this festival is not the main attraction, we still can’t help adding the menu lineup. Foods are crafted like works of art and will take some time to make at the Food Studios. The food is worth the wait! Check out the 13 Food Studios below. And you can find more options at pop up carts and Joffreys locations through the link at the end of the post. Here’s the menus from 2019 to give you an idea of what treats are in store… we’ll be updating this post with 2020 menus as soon as they’re announced!
Walt Disney World Festival of the Arts at Epcot
If you’re looking for a great way to take advantage of Florida’s mild winter months, then visiting Walt Disney World in January or February should be part of your travel plans. The Walt Disney World Parks during the early part of the year have lower crowds, better weather and amazing events like the International Festival of the Arts to help keep everyone entertained. It’s a perfect event for couples, families, kids, everyone! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
