If there is one thing that you can be sure of when it comes to Disney, it is that there will always be a ton of great merchandise you can purchase, regardless of the Park you are visiting. And if there is a special event, there will be merchandise themed specifically to that event. Right now, Disney is celebrating the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, and not only are there a number of food booths where you can buy limited-time eats, sweets, and drinks, but there is also a lot of merchandise that Disney has released for the Festival.
Now, you may have already heard about the Figment popcorn bucket — which people waited more than five hours to purchase and others scalped for almost $200 — but there is also even more great merchandise like baseball hats and spirit jerseys. Let’s take a look at just some of the Festival of the Arts merchandise you can purchase while visiting EPCOT.
As with almost all EPCOT festivals, the charming purple dragon, Figment, is the focus of Festival of the Arts merchandise. He’s placed in the corner of the festival’s 2022 baseball hat. The hat features the Festival’s signature artwork on the front and then is slate gray in the back and is the perfect purchase for those who want to keep the sun out of their eyes.
One of the most popular pieces of merchandise at almost any Disney Park is the spirit jersey. Spirit jerseys come in a wide array of colors and designs, so there is truly one to match every Guest’s style and personality. For this year’s Festival of the Arts, the spirit jersey features symbols from all aspects of the festival — music for the performing arts, drinks and food for the culinary arts, and picture frames for the classic artwork. The back of the spirit jersey features the phrase “Make A Masterpiece Today”.
Another incredibly popular piece of Disney merchandise are the Loungefly mini backpacks. The backpacks come in a ton of great styles and feature a number of classic characters. For the Festival of the Arts, Loungefly has steered away from the traditional small backpack and has instead created a tote bag — perfect for carrying other merchandise that you can’t let stay on the rack. Instead of featuring Figment, this bag features Spaceship Earth – the symbol of EPCOT — and the bag is gray, instead of the traditional tan color on other merchandise.
In celebration of all the amazing painters that will be featured during the Festival, Disney has released a special palette that will become a beautiful decoration for any room in your house. You can also hang an adorable Figment ornament next to it — no need to wait until next Christmas!
Finally, Disney has released the Annual Passholders Exclusive Hoodie — which has blue sleeves and a blue hood, but a gray chest area. The artwork on the shirt is subtle, and Passholder is written on one of the sleeves. It is the perfect piece of merchandise for any Passholder who heads to the Most Magical Place on Earth.
