Set up your canvas and break out the paints and brushes, the 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Arts starts tomorrow. You’ll be able to explore and celebrate the Visual, Performing, and Culinary arts as only Disney can do. The folks at Walt Disney World have also created a creative canvas of fresh merchandise for you to capture those memories with.
You will go gaga for the Epcot Festival of the Arts merchandise. There is, of course, a heavy Figment theme. The imaginative creature was created just for Epcot and he’s become the arts festival’s mascot.
We talked with a Disney merchandise representative about some of the highlights of this year’s collection, and point out the one piece we think everyone will want. Hint: Figment Ears.
Yes. The Figment Mickey Mouse Ear headband is already one of the more popular items flying off the shelves. It’s very cute.
Also getting a lot of looks is the tie-dyed spirit jersey.
Did you see any particular item you know you just have to have?
About the Festival of the Arts:
This annual celebration of visual, culinary and performing arts presents 39 fun-packed days showcasing art in many forms for everyone in the family. Food and drinks are created with artistic flair at more than 15 park destinations. The festival’s creative menus feature everything from red wine-braised short ribs with parsnip puree at Cuisine Classique to vanilla, rose water and pistachio panna cotta at Masterpiece Kitchen. Kids of all ages will want to try the Pop’t Art modern-design sugar cookie and other delectable treats.
In 2019, the festival’s popular Disney on Broadway Concert Series will offer performances every day of the festival. The series presents musical performances from Disney on Broadway shows like “The Lion King” and “Beauty and the Beast,” and special dining packages guarantee concert seats.
Interactive fun is around every corner. Guests can help paint a mural, pose for a memorable photo in the frame of an iconic piece of art, participate in a workshop, or take a break to watch performance artists in action.
