All Things Festival of the Arts

Festival of the Art is by far our families FAVORITE!! There is SO MUCH to see and experience. Like every festival, there are booths set up around the World Showcase showcasing local and Disney artist, sometime the artist themselves will be at the booths! This is the time to purchase art and special gifts! You can also see live chalk drawings, participate in painting a HUGE mural and even make your own spin art! Kids and adults have the opportunity to participate in all of the art fun!



Starting January 12 through February 19, 2024, get ready to try some amazing bites at their 18 Food Studios, all specially made by awesome chefs and mixologists! Your favorites like the Red Wine-braised Beef Short Rib and Deconstructed Key Lime Pie are back, plus some soon-to-be hits like the Neapolitan Dessert Trio and Grilled Pork Belly. Don't forget to grab a Festival Passport as you eat around the World Showcase and join our Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine. Buy five dishes, get stamps, and score a cool prize from Deco Delights. Enjoy!


Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt

This is an absolute must for all festivals! It offers you the chance to explore each country's pavilion in search of your favorite festival character, with a prize awaiting you at the end. This year, the hunt will be on for Figment among the world's most notable paintings! Maps can be purchased at Creations Shop, Port of Entry, and World Traveler.



The Figment love is still going strong this year!


Not only do we have the Figment’s Inspiration Station with its yum bites back at Odyssey: Art, Food, and Magic Sparks, but there's also a cool new bucket. The Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket with Rainbow Popcorn is super cute and inspired by Journey Into Imagination with Figment!
