Disney Channel Fan Fest Coming to EPCOT

Are you a Disney Channel fanatic? The third year of Disney Channel Fan Fest is on its way, and this year it’s headed to both California AND Florida!

This interactive experience for kids and families returns to Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim on Saturday, May 9. The fun will then shift to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, where the event will run in conjunction with the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival over three consecutive weekends (May 16-17, May 23-24, and May 30-31).

During the events, fans will get the chance to interact with the casts of some of Disney Channel’s most popular shows.

Activities for the May 9 program at Disneyland Resort include the “QUIZney” trivia challenge, drawing lessons with folks from Disney Television Animation, a special sneak peak at the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie “Upside-Down Magic,” dance parties themed around “Descendants” and “ZOMBIES,” plus photo opportunities with some of Disney Channel’s biggest stars.

If you can’t make it in person, a procession down Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. featuring celebrities and beloved Disney characters will be live-streamed on the Disney Parks Blog and Disney Channel YouTube.

Casts from multiple shows scheduled to attend

While the cast appearances are subject to change without notice, stars from “ZOMBIES 2,” “Gabby Duran & the Unsittables,” “Raven’s Home,” “Just Roll With It,” “Sydney to the Max,” “Coop & Cami Ask the World,” “BUNK’D,” the upcoming “Disney Fan Jam” and “Upside-Down Magic” are currently expected to attend. The learn-to-draw sessions will be helmed by the creative folks from “Big City Greens,” “The Owl House,” “Amphibia,” and “DuckTales.”

Theme park admission to Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World is required.  To participate in celebrity meet-and-greets and photo ops, fans will need to obtain wristbands, which will be distributed first-come, first-served at the park’s opening time.
