The artsy event — now in its seventh year — features activities and offerings that play into the theme of celebrating the culinary, performing and visual arts.

Over the festival’s 39-day run, there will be live performances at the World Showcase Plaza, dozens of artists showing off their artwork, decorative food, Disney on Broadway concerts at the America Gardens Theatre and more.

While most of the festival feels familiar, there are a few experiences that have been refreshed for this year.

The event features more than 15 Food Studios around the park serving up art-inspired cuisine and drinks. In addition to festival mainstays such as the red wine-braised beef at the Pastoral Palate and the tomato soup with grilled cheese at Pop Eats!, the menus feature several new items, including grilled pork belly at The Craftsman’s Courtyard, a Neapolitan dessert trio at Deco Delights, a Wagyu Bun at Goshiki in Japan and a passion fruit-filled mango cheesecake at Vibrante & Vivido.



Over at Figment’s Inspiration Station at the Odyssey, fans of the purple dragon can pick up a new popcorn bucket inspired by Journey into Imagination. The popcorn bucket, which is served with rainbow popcorn, lights up in different colors including green, red, blue and purple. And just like last year, the bucket is available through mobile order in the My Disney Experience app.

Around the park, visitors will still find the large step-in frame photo ops that have been part of the festival since its inception. But this year's lineup includes new frames based on scenes from Disney’s animated film “Wish,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Mary Poppins.”

The chalk artists are also back, and this year there's a section for kids make their own chalk art.

EPCOT International Festival of the Arts runs daily through Feb. 19.
