New Activities Coming to EPCOT’s Festival of the Arts 2021

The Disney Parks Blog recently updated guests on some information for 2021’s Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. This year’s festival may look a little different than what guests are used to, but the Blog updated readers on some fun experiences that will be available in 2021.

Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts will run from January 8, 2021 – February 22, 2021. Self-described as a  “global celebration mixes visual, culinary and performing arts from around the world into an entertaining blend that’s fun for the entire family. More than 100 Disney and visiting artists will display their work, and you can show off your own talents by participating in interactive experiences such as a larger-than-life paint-by-number mural or learning to draw some of your favorite Disney characters. You can also step into famous works of art, thanks to artful photo ops. You’ll also discover dishes to feast on with delicious Disney twists and art-inspired menus”. 

The festival is bound to be a fun one!

Here is a list of some of the new experiences coming in 2021, as listed on the Disney Parks Blog:

  • Voices of Liberty will take center stage at America Gardens Theatre with a brand-new showcase – The Disney Songbook. From “When You Wish Upon a Star” to “Let It Go,” the ensemble will perform Disney songs and celebrate the artistry of Disney composers and lyricists.
  • Over at World Showplace, you can catch live performances by “Art Defying Gravity,” a spectacle of thrilling strength acts, and “Visual Art in Performance,” a high-energy, onstage visual artist who paints favorite Disney characters before your eyes in just a matter of minutes.
  • Food Studios located around World Showcase are where you can view – and eat – great works of art. Vibrante & Vívido Food Studio, a new location between France and Morocco, will feature a mouthwatering (and photo-ready) chilled seafood cocktail with octopus, scallops, shrimp, black garlic aïoli, tomato coconut sauce, and serrano lime oil. Or, indulge in Blue Corn Pupusa stuffed with cheese and topped with shredded pork, guajillo and árbol chile sauce, cabbage slaw and aji amarillo crema. Keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for a Festival Foodie Guide coming soon!
  • Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine, where you’ll use the Festival Passport as a guide to purchase five vibrant food items and receive complimentary, tasty technicolor treat.
  • Figment’s Brush with the Masters returns this year, as well, inviting you to help Figment learn about art on a scavenger hunt around World Showcase; you will be able to purchase a map and stickers for the family-friendly hunt at a variety of merchandise locations.
