Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2020 – Quick Overview

Wecome to Epcot! - Epcot Walt Disney World

The Epcot International Festival of the Arts kicks off this month, running through February 24th. I wanted to give just a brief overview of the festival here, should you be on the fence as to whether to take time out of your busy vacation time to make this a priority.

Epcot Food kiosks - Epcot Walt Disney World

One big highlight of the festival is the food. You’ll find various kiosks positioned around World Showcase featuring beautifully-prepared, great tasting dishes (well, I should say they’re great-tasting for the most part).
