Two New Culinary Studios Announced for EPCOT 2022 International Arts Festival

The next EPCOT International Arts Festival will run from January 14 to February 21, 2022. The festival will feature many favorite activities, as well as two new culinary studios.

There will be fifteen food studios in total. Deco Delights and The Craftman’s Courtyard will debut this year, featuring “artfully presented food and drink that is as visually appealing as it is delicious.”

Guests can also join the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine – a foodie walk showcasing five sweet and savory offerings listed in the Festival Passport. Once guests purchase and receive a stamp for all five items, they will win an Artist Palette cookie.

The DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series will return, with three shows each night headlined by Broadway stars performing beloved songs from over 25 years of award-winning stage productions. From December 14, guests can visit to learn more about the DISNEY ON BROADWAY dining packages that come with this memorable concert series.

Visual art also comes to life in different ways at the festival. More than 100 Disney artists and guests will present their works throughout EPCOT. Guests can spot artists at work at the Disney Artist Gallery and WonderGround Gallery, accompanied by pieces from the ACME Archives, Thomas Kinkade Studios, Wyland Galleries and POP Gallery.

The Princess and the Frog Perspective Chalk Art at EPCOT International Arts Festival

Guests of all ages can watch imaginative chalk artists create masterpieces in the Chalk Art Galleries, or improve their own artistic skills by learning to draw a Disney character at the Animation Academy. Kids can create their own chalk masterpieces at Kid’s Chalk Art and families can leave their artistic stamp on a larger-than-life mural at Expression Section: A Paint by Numbers Mural. Around World Showcase, guests can step inside renowned paintings from centuries past in stunning artistic photo ops. When it’s time to recharge their creative energy, guests can sit back and watch Visual Art in Performance, as an artist paints favorite Disney characters in minutes.

This year’s festival merchandise collection will once again feature Figment.
