Get A First Look at This Year’s Festival of the Arts Passport
Good morning Disney friends! Today marks the official launch of the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts and MickeyBlog is coming to you LIVE from the theme park. We’ve just pick up the Festival of the Arts Passport which is your go-to guide for all of the fun activities, exhibits and cuisine you’ll find at this year’s fest and want to give you a first look.
So let’s dive in!
As you can see, this year’s passport features some lovely artwork featuring the one and only Figment! The colorway is similar to the neighborhood flags you’ll find around EPCOT!
The inside front cover features a welcome graphic and a the guide is color coded making it for guests to quickly find activities suited to your needs!
Though many think that EPCOT’s awesome festivals are just for adults, that could be further in from the truth. There are a wide array of family-friendly activities including A Paint-by-Number Mural, Animation Academy, Photo Ops that put you in the center of your favorite works of art, chalk art and so much more!
You’ll also want to have your debit cards at the ready. There’s a wide array of festival merchandise available exclusively at EPCOT as well as the opportunity to buy works of art from some incredible artists that draw their inspiration from all things Disney!
If plan on spending the day enjoying everything that the Fest has to offer or are looking for that perfect gift, consider picking up a Festival Gift Card. These can be pre-loaded and used to buy merchandise, food, art and more!
A highlight of the Fest is sure to be the Disney on Broadway Concert Series which takes place at the American Gardens Theater. Here you can check out some of Broadway’s leading talents taking your through some beloved Disney musical numbers. Kicking things off will be Arielle and Adam Jacobs!
One of the major reasons to pick up a Festival Passport is because it gives guests a complete rundown of the incredible menu items you’ll find at the Food Studios peppered around the World Showcase!
Each year you’ll find some returning favorites as well as new culinary works of art! We can’t wait to get our hands on this years souvenir popcorn bucket featuring Figment!
Guests will find both sweet and savory bites as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. There’s even a key at the front helping you narrow in on vegetarian and gluten-free options!
I can’t wait to try the Passion Fruit Mousse at the NEW Encanto Cocina!
The sushi donut is a great returning treat that is sure to please sushi lovers of all ages!
The American Adventure is the go-to spot for delectable Funnel Cakes and we’re pretty eager to try the chocolate flights at the Artist’s Table!
Over at the China Pavilion you can pick up a very on-trend and Instagram-worthy bubble tea and the Wild Board Cassoulet at Pastoral Palette sounds absolutely divine!
A plant-based option that I can’t wait to try is the Bratwurst at Refreshment Outpost.
The Donut Box is also a must-visit for those looking to satisfy those sweet cravings! Here you’ll find a variety of donuts that are absolutely next level!
For those interested in taking part in some of the Festival scavenger activities, we recommend the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine. You’ll find everything you need to get started in the back of the passport! Collect all the stickers and you’ll even get a special treat!
