Next up in Epcot’s revolving door of jamborees is the Festival of the Arts, opening Friday, January 18. You’ll have 39 days to experience culture a la Disney before it ends Feb 25 to make way for the next festival.
When most people thing of artistic endeavors they think painting, sculptures or maybe even performing arts, all of which you’ll find at the FotA. But Epcot gives equal time to the culinary arts, perhaps because the organizers know that more people are likely to shell out some money for something to eat than for something to hang on a wall.
At a media preview event Wednesday morning, I got to sample some of the foods that will be available throughout the park at the various kiosks, called Food Studios for this particular festival.
