As we head into fall, the Disney parks are ready to celebrate, and for EPCOT, that means new festivals. Disney has just announced the dates for the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts for 2024!
EPCOT celebrates four featured festivals throughout the year: EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival, EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, and EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival.
Each festival features unique dining, entertainment, and merchandise, all offered only during that festival’s time in EPCOT. While the festivals are celebrated throughout the parks, the booths and entertainment are predominately featured throughout the World Showcase. EPCOT’s World Showcase is home to 11 pavilions, each representing a country: Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, The American Adventure, Japan, Morocco, France, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
