Best Foods at EPCOT Festival of the Arts at 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

 

The Artist’s Table | Beef Wellington

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 a Mushroom Duxelle, Prosciutto and Puff Pastry with Red Wine Demi-Glace and Baby Vegetables. Yum!

Festival of the Arts Foods

Deco Delights | Dulce Chocolate Mousse 

Frankly, everything at Deco Delights was delicious. This is a Dulce Chocolate Mousse with Chocolate Crémeux and Dark Chocolate Truffle. 

Festival of the Arts Deco Delights

Deco Delights | Decadent Valrhona Chocolate 

This is a Decadent Valrhona Chocolate with Dark Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Brownie, and Cassis Mousse. Stacked inside a purple triangle, the brownie, and mousse meld together perfectly.

Deco Delights |Orange Mousse with Lemon Cake 

This dish was fresh and fruity with Orange Mousse, Lemon Cake, and Raspberry Meringues. 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. 

Donut Box Festiavl of Arts

The Donut Box | Vanilla Donut

We went into this booth, figuring the bavarian donut would be a favorite, but the flavors of the Vanilla Donut won the day here. This is a small Vanilla Donut with Strawberry Sugar lace, Strawberry Ice Cream, Fresh Strawberries, and Strawberry Gele (Color Stroll item). The combination of each part of this dish eaten as one bite really is to die for and is highly recommended. 

Goshiki Japan Booth at Festival of The Arts

Goshiki | Chicken Kushiage

This dish is Breaded and Fried Chicken with Yum Yum Sauce and Vegetables. Very simple and very good if you’re looking for lunch.

L’Art De La Cuisine Française | Moelleux aux Noisettes et Chocolats Valrhona

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 et Chocolats Valrhona is a Molten Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake with Pure Origin Valrhona Chocolates. 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.

Festival of the Arts Food

The Painted Panda | General Tso’s Chicken Shumai

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

The Painted Panda | Char Siu Pork Bun

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.  

Pastoral Palate | Red Wine-Braised Beef Short Rib

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. 

Opera Cake at the Germany Booth Festival of the Arts

Pastoral Palate | Opera Cake

This multi-layered wonder includes Almond Joconde, Coffee Buttercream, and Chocolate Ganache. Like a layered cake, this is delicate, sweet, and with a variety of textures. It is one of our favorite things at the festival to be sure. 

Pop Eats Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese

Pop Eats | Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese

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

Vibrante & Vívido: Encanto Cocina | House-Made Chorizo 

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

Spicy Ajiaco Soup

Vibrante & Vívido: Encanto Cocina | Spicy Ajiaco Soup 

This soup was large in portion size, with a quarter piece of corn. Could have been a full lunch for sure. Spicy Ajiaco Soup with Guajillo and Árbol Chili-Spiced Chicken, Potato, Avocado, Corn, and Crème Fraîche (gluten/wheat-friendly)

  • 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!
