Festival of the Arts

Global visual, culinary and performing arts create a tapestry of wonder during EPCOT International Festival of the Arts presented by AT&T at Walt Disney World Resort, Jan. 13 – Feb. 20, 2023.

EPCOT becomes the stage for this 39-day festival, with extraordinary artwork, culinary creations inspired by art movements and Broadway stars singing beloved Disney songs. The celebration of the arts is sure to delight festivalgoers with magic that only Disney can create.

The festival is just one of the many exciting events occurring during the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary celebration, happening now through March 31, 2023.

In addition to enjoying the festival, guests can explore the endless possibilities that EPCOT has to offer. Guests can help save the galaxy on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, shrink to the size of Remy on Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, dine among the stars at Space 220 and so much more.


Fifty years ago, Walt Disney World Resort opened its gates. Worlds of magic changed all of us through timeless characters, enduring memories and visions of a bright & beautiful future. During The World’s Most Magical Celebration, you’ll discover a transformed experience across all four theme parks. After 50 years, the magic is calling and all across The Most Magical Place on Earth, classic favorites and new adventures await, ready to wrap you in once-in-a-lifetime Disney memories.

Whether it’s your first time or your 50th, get ready for classic favorites and new adventures unlike any other place on Earth. Come celebrate the small stuff. The big stuff. And all the in-between stuff. Get ready for a celebration 50 years in the making. It’s the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary celebration beginning October 1, 2021. And the only thing missing is you.



One of the best places to experience spring is at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. Beginning March 1 and continuing through July 5, this stunning festival features alluring gardens, whimsical topiaries, lively entertainment, beautiful merchandise and delightfully fresh cuisine.

For the first time, topiaries of Mirabel, Antonio, Isabela and Luisa from Disney’s Encanto will make a grand appearance at the festival. Located near the EPCOT main entrance, these new topiaries are sure to be a must-do photo moment to mark your visit. (But remember: We don’t talk about Bruno.) A new Princess Tiana topiary will grace The American Adventure pavilion as well!

    Although not as long as the previously offered Extra Magic Hours, Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours are offered to select guests of Disney Resort hotels and some Good Neighbor hotels near Walt Disney World. These extra hours can be a very valuable use of your time if you're willing to give up some sleep on either end of your theme park day(s). We've found that the early morning option can offer lower crowds than in evening as folks don't tend to enjoy waking up super early on vacation.

    • Early Theme Park Entry
      Early theme park entry is a benefit for registered guests staying at Disney Resort hotels and other select Disney-area hotels.

    • Extended Evening Hours
      Guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort or Disney Deluxe Villa Resort or other select hotels can enjoy extended evening hours on select evenings in select theme parks.
