New Additions and Updated Disney on Broadway Lineup Announced for 2020 Epcot Festival of the Arts
The 2020 Epcot Festival of the Arts will be held next year from January 17 to February 24. To get us even more excited for the 2020 Festival, Disney has just announced some new additions and an updated Disney on Broadway lineup! Find out all the latest below:
One of the new additions to the 2020 Epcot Festival of the Arts is the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine, The “Walk” will feature food creations that make you look twice and delight all your senses.
Walt Disney was quoted as saying “Color does brighten things up, doesn’t it?” And, I can’t argue with that! Based on this quote the Food Studios’ at the Epcot Festival of the Arts will showcase menus bursting with bright hues and flavors, and you’ll have a chance to sample the spectrum of delicious dishes with the reward of a colorful culinary prize. Your taste buds will be tempted as you walk through the World Showcase Promenade as you are tempted with creative bites and sips created by talented Disney chefs. Make sure to collect a stamp in your festival Passport “palette,”for each menu item you sample. Then, make sure to collect your culinary prize!
Make sure to plan ahead and view the menus at each of the Food Studios. Highlights include abstract fare at Deconstructed Dish and tasty treats at Decadent Delights. There’s something for everyone’s palette at 12 Food Studios and other festival food and beverage spots.

Did you know that all of the Disney on Broadway shows during the Epcot Festival of the Arts are included with your park admission? They are! They are held three times nightly at the America Gardens Theater across from the American Adventures Pavilion. And here’s a pro tip: Make reservations for one of the Disney On Broadway dining packages. These packages guarantee priority seating at the show as well as a delicious dining experience the day of the show.
Like mostly everything at Walt Disney World, the Epcot Festival of the Arts is for every member of the family! Kids will love the Green Landing Family Play Zone or pose for some memorable family pictures at several Artful Photo Ops, then paint a piece of our Expression Section: Paint by Number Mural at World Showcase Plaza.
If you plan on attending the 2020 Festival, opening day is the day to go as three new films will also be debuting at Epcot that day! You’ll see art meet science in “Awesome Planet” at The Land pavilion, which employs spectacular imagery, in-theater effects, and an original musical score. You’ll get to perform as part of the audience at the “Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along” in the France pavilion. And you’ll be surrounded by the visual beauty of northern climes when viewing “Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360” in the Canada pavilion – it’s a breathtaking update to the original “O Canada!” film with new scenes, a new musical score and narration by award-winning actors Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy.
But, that’s not all! A new four piece pop/rock band, Lebendig, will be performing in the Germany Pavilion from January 17 to February 25, 2020! They will delight Guests with their contemporary interpretation of the beloved German Schlager style, including covers and originals.
