Frequently Asked Questions

When is the EPCOT Festival of the Arts?

The 2024 EPCOT Festival of the Arts kicks off on January 12, 2024, and ends on February 19, 2024.

How long does the EPCOT Festival of the Arts run for?

It lasts for five weeks, giving you just over a month to experience this art-filled fest.

What are the park hours for EPCOT’s Festival of the Arts?

During the festival, EPCOT is open from 9 AM to 9 PM every day. However, festival booth and activity times will vary. Each day, the food booths (or “food studios”) open at 11 AM. Make sure you grab a Festival Passport upon entering EPCOT for the 2023 Festival of the Arts. This is your guide to the day’s activities (and all the Festival of the Arts food booths).

How much is the 2024 EPCOT Festival of the Arts?

All EPCOT festivals, including the 2024 EPCOT Festival of the Arts, are included with the cost of admission to EPCOT.

  • If you’re an Annual Passholder, attending the 2024 Festival of the Arts costs nothing (though blackout dates still apply).
  • If you’re purchasing a ticket, a standard single-day ticket to EPCOT costs $119.

However, there are other Festival of the Arts costs to factor in before you head to the park. For example, one of the main draws of the festival is the collection of food booths (“food studios”), where you can purchase artistic renditions of classic food, snacks, and drinks. These vary in cost; the cheapest items are typically in the $2 to $3 range. However, the fanciest cocktails may hit $13 to $15.

While the Festival of the Arts has held free demonstrations and classes in the past, there have also been paid classes you can take (as little as $25 per person). One activity – the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine – requires the purchase of select food items to complete and earn the prize. Another – the Figment scavenger hunt (“Figment’s Brush with the Masters”) – typically costs $9.99 to participate.

And of course, there’s plenty of special festival merch to go around. If you’ve gotta have the 2024 EPCOT Festival of the Arts merch (I mean, Figment is pretty darn cute), be ready to spend a pretty penny. You’ll also find beautiful art for sale during the festival.

What’s free at the EPCOT Festival of the Arts?

If you’re hoping to do the Festival of the Arts on a budget, you’ll want to skip the food booths, merch stops, scavenger hunts, food strolls, and special classes. However, one of the most exciting aspects of the Festival of the Arts is the slew of live performances you can catch throughout the day – and each one of these performances is completely free! While the 2024 entertainment schedule is still yet to be released, you can expect the following live entertainment to be free once you’re inside EPCOT for the festival:

  • Disney on Broadway, a series of Broadway performers singing Disney hits at the America Gardens Theater.
  • Visual Art in Performance, where you can watch artists paint Disney characters live in only a few minutes.
  • Art Defying Gravity, an acrobat show that literally creates art in the air.
  •  Animation Academy, a chance to learn how to draw some of your favorite Disney faces.

In addition to these free daily performances, there’s plenty to see around EPCOT during the Festival of the Arts. And it’s all free! You’ll be able to find photo opportunities where you can step into famous paintings and snapshots with a Disney PhotoPass Photographer (or take your own photos), check out visual art like the Walking Chalk Gallery, and browse the work of artists at the Festival Markets.

Make sure you grab a Festival Passport upon entering EPCOT for the 2024 Festival of the Arts. This is your guide to the day’s activities, food booths, and free entertainment you can enjoy without spending a cent.

2024 EPCOT Festival of the Arts Food Studios

Unlike the other three festivals, this is one where more thought seems to be put into the presentation of the food rather than the flavor.

Chalk Art
