The festival falls between Christmas and spring break, when crowds are typically light. Epcot has historically seen spikes in park attendance driven by festivals, especially its popular Food & Wine Festival in the fall.
Running weekends from Jan. 13 through Feb. 20, the arts festival will have work on display from both historical and current Disney artists with live art creation on site. There will be Broadway talent from Disney musicals such as The Lion King and Newsies. And in a nod to the chefs who put Epcot on the foodie map, there will be Food Studios (kiosks around the park), offering “creations that look almost too good to eat.”
