Epcot International Festival of the Arts Menus 2018

Epcot is such a wonderful park, and it’s even better when a festival is going on!  And we couldn’t be more excited than we are for the 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Arts.  This was a brand new festival in 2017 and we’re happy it’s making a comeback now in 2018!  Today we’re happy to share with you the 2018 Epcot Festival of the Arts Menus!

The Festival of the Arts combines visual, culinary and performing arts all together for guests to experience.  Similar to the Food and Wine Festival, Disney has different Food Studios setup around World Showcase that celebrate different and interesting ways of cooking which combines visual beauty also.  Last year’s menu was incredible and this year looks even better even though it’s almost the same. The biggest additions imo are the additional Food Studios located in China, Mexico, France, Italy, Morocco and Japan.   Let’s first see what you need to know:
