International Festival of The Arts 2018 RECAP

This was the second year of the International Festival of The Arts and we loved it!! This year Disney added in some really cool stuff for pass holders and included some new interactive things for all the guest!

For passholders Disney released pass holder prints of Belle, as seines in the blog heading and in the gallery below!

And as for the new things added to the festival this year, there were some drawing seminars where guest could take part in learning how to draw some of Disney’s classic characters like Mickey, Olaf and Stitch! Another new thing was the “deconstructed” themed dishes that were very popular amongst Instagramers.

We liked the fact that they still kept some of the activities from the inaugural festival like the giant mural and the amazing sidewalk chalk artist! The concert series with the Broadway performers was just astounding and the theming for the festival was on point, having Figment at the focal point. Because without creativity and the “Figment” of our imagination, we would not have art!

As for next years festival we are expecting some of the same activities and hopefully some new and different food items added on the menu!! To see some recipes from the IFOTA, head over to the “Foodies” section of our website and it will take you where you will have access to tons of great recipes from your home away from home!!!

Below is a small gallery of some of our favorite moments from the festival!!

Tale As Old As Time: Beauty And The Beast LIVE!

On Hollywood Blvd, you’ll discover an outdoor amphitheater with giant banners showing our beloved friends from Beauty And The Beast. Park guest file into the huge seating area and patiently await the starting of the show. The opening number from the movie echoes throughout the theatre and fog fills the stage floor.

The whole movie is condensed into a roughly 35 minute show. There are a lot of musical numbers, dancing, vibrant colors, a handsome prince, and of course our beautiful Belle!

Take a look below at some pictures from the show! You can catch this amazing show everyday at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Just check your My Disney Experience app for daily show times, as they are subject to change at any time!

Inaugural Festival Of the Arts 2017 Opening Weekend


This is the first festival of its kind at Epcot, featuring food, drinks, and art work from various people around the world!

The International Festival of the Arts is off to an AMAZING start! The Disney Traveler gang arrived about half way through the day. It wasn’t extremely hot or crowded for a Saturday, which made the festival more enjoyable. Roaming from country to country, art work for Disney artist were set up all around, advertising their grand masterpieces.

One of my favorite things is the “living paintings”. The only pavilions that have them are the United Kingdom, Italy and America. Also located in different places are living statues.

While the festival is in full swing, families can still participate in the Epcot Passport and Kidcot Fun Stops. Kids of all ages can pick up a palette, grab their brushes, and create their own masterpiece from around the world!
