Food Guide: EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2023

Calling all art and foodie fans!

The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts will be back from Jan. 13 through Feb. 20, 2023. This festival will celebrate the creation and beauty of cuisines, music, and art. With almost 15 Food Studios around the park, there are plenty of returning favorites like Wild Mushroom Risotto and some new treats like the Hummingbird Cake from The Artist’s Table. Be sure to bring some stretchy pants and walking shoes to participate in the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine, the returning food stroll. Collect a stamp to redeem a special prize from Deco Delights with every bite.

Figment fans are in luck this year. Guests can explore Figment’s Inspiration Station at the Odyssey: Art, Food, and Little Spark of Magic. You can also bring home the brand new Fruity Fig Bar Figment Disney Munchling. He is an adorable limited-edition Disney Muchling featuring the smell of berries. You can find Figment in munchling form at the merchandise locations at the festival and on shopDisney. The Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket is returning with a new EPCOT 40th Anniversary strap this year.

For all my foodies, Disney has added 50 new items to their food booth menus and two new food booths this year. Moderne and Figment’s Inspiration Station at the Odyssey: Art, Food, and Little Spark of Magic.
