Best Foods at EPCOT Festival of the Arts 2024 Disney World

If there’s one thing we love to write about, it’s food. And even though the Epcot International Festival of the Arts is more about art and less about food, let’s be honest. The food is still a pretty big deal for us. We love seeing all of the new Festival of the Arts foods each year as they always get better! With Disney Festival of the Arts Foods almost too pretty to eat-emphasis on almost- the food at this festival still knows how to contend with the best of them.

International Festival of the Arts Foods We Love

The festival has come a long way since its inaugural year and is a lot more crowded, but we were happy to see that everything is still as beautiful and bright as we remember. Every dish at the International Festival of the Arts is a work of art in itself. That being said, the food has to be more than just a pretty plate. So we ate our way around the world showcase-you’re welcome-to find not only the prettiest dishes but also the most delicious ones. Check out the Festival of the Arts Menus for all the foods we had to pick from! 

America Beef Wellington Festival of the Arts

Beef Wellington | Cuisine Classique 

Another classic meal, this Beef Wellington at Disney was perfect. With flaky pastry and veggies. Perfectly tender. A great little meal all in itself. This dish includes Mushroom duxelles, prosciutto, and puff pastry with red wine demi-glace. Yum!

Festival of the Arts Foods

Neapolitan Dessert Trio | Deco Delights

This dish was fresh and fruity with strawberry mousse and vanilla bean cheesecake. The only complaint here was that the meringues were overcooked. But the little lemon cupcake was light and flavorful and the flavors in the orange mousse made up for it. Neapolitan Dessert Trio: Chocolate tart, vanilla bean cheesecake, and strawberry mousse.

Hummingbird Cake: Banana and pecan cake dipped in cream cheese icing with caramel sauce and warm pineapple compote

Hummingbird Cake | The Artist’s Table America

L'Art de la Cuisine Francaise

Moelleux aux Noisettes | L’Art de la Cuisine Francaise

Do you love chocolate? Is that even a real question? If you love decadent, rich, chocolate, then this dessert is for you. Moelleux aux Noisettes, Croustillant Noisettes, Coulis Framboise et Mangue. Molten Valrhona chocolate cake, hazelnut crunch, and mango-raspberry coulis. Beautifully soft, chocolate cake on the outside and rich, warm Pure Origin Valrhona chocolate on the inside, that just flows out of the center of the cake when you cut it. It’s basically like a lava cake, but better. By far one of the Best Foods at the EPCOT Festival of the Arts.

Frozen French Martini: Grey Goose Vodka, Chambord liqueur, pineapple, orange, and grape juices with lemon-lime foam

Frozen French Martini | L’Art de la Cuisine Francaise

By far our favorite drink at the Festival of the Arts every year is the Frozen French Martini. This is a delicious Grey Goose Vodka, Chambord liqueur, pineapple, orange, and grape juices with lemon-lime foam. Yum!

Festival of the Arts Food

General Tso’s Chicken Shumai | The Painted Panda

If you love your food to have a little bit of a kick, then you’ll love the spicy chicken shumai from The Painted Panda in China. This was one of our favorite Festival of the Arts foods this year! It’s full of flavor and we love that the spicy sauce is so well complimented by the coolness of the cucumber. 

Pork Bun Festival of the Arts

Char Siu Pork Bun | The Painted Panda

Another favorite, this dish was perfectly cooked with the pork done just right. The soft bun, sauce, and presentation here are impeccable. And it’s a decent portion size too.  

Red Wine-Braised Beef Short Rib | Pastoral Palate 

This returning delicious dish is a wonderful combo of flavors. Red Wine-Braised Beef Short Rib with Parsnip Purée, Broccolini, Baby Tomatoes, and Aged Balsamic meld together for a rich snack. 

Black Forest Cake Germany Festival of the Arts

Black Forest Cake | Pastoral Palate

Never a disappointment the chocolate cakes at the Germany pavilion for Festival of the Arts are always a delight! Chocolate mousse with morello cherries and chantilly cream. Delicious. And highly recommended! A great portion size too! 

Pop Eats Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese

Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese | Pop Eats

A large enough portion for a mini lunch, this dish includes a soft mini grilled cheese and luxe tomato soup served in a cute “soup can.” Perfect for kids and grown-ups and a great value.

House-Made Chorizo and Potato Empanada with Turmeric Aïoli and Annatto Aïoli

Chorizo and Potato Empanada | Vibrante & Vívido Encanto Cocina 

House-Made Chorizo and Potato Empanada with Turmeric Aïoli and Annatto Aïoli. This was an amazing dish, flavorful and flaky.

  • These all look amazing – thank you for sharing them. We are planning to be there for this festival next year and are just trying to sort out a budget. Can you give an idea of the prices of the dishes you’ve featured please?

    • Thanks so much! I will definitely add in prices later today for exact cost, but just know these dishes tend to be a bit more expensive than the other festivals, likely since they take a bit more time to create. Most sweet dishes ranged from $6-$8 and savory dishes were more in the $7-$11 range. If you drink alcohol, we did notice a jump in those prices as well, with some of them being as high as $15. If you’re using the dining plan, though, some of the items are snack credit eligible which can help with some of that cost!
