Updated October 2021: Disney has not made an official announcement on the 2022 EPCOT Festival of the Arts. Be sure to check back with this blog post as we will continue to release new information as Disney releases it. We do expect the festival of the arts menu, concert series, and seminars to hopefully be back to normal. Below is the complete 2022 festival of the Arts guide based on years past!

What Are The Dates For EPCOT Festival of the Arts 2022?

epcot-festival-of-the-arts-dates-2021

The Festival of the arts 2022 dates are as follows:

So how long is the festival of the arts? Unfortunately Disney has not released the 2022 Festival of the arts dates. Historically the dates are held between January 8th – February 28th.

It’s important to note that the Festival of the Arts EPCOT 2022 dates have not been announced and we are still waiting on the exact park hours as well. It’s important to note that the anticipated date range make this one of our favorite festivals to visit at EPCOT. There simply isn’t a more enjoyable time of year to visit Florida than January and February.

Park Hours For Disney EPCOT Festival of the Arts 2022

The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2022 will be held during normal EPCOT operating hours. You can check out all of the EPCOT operating hours on our Disney Crowd Calendar!  

It’s important to note that a large majority of the EPCOT Festival of Arts is held in World Showcase. For those who are not familiar with EPCOT, it is broken down into two lands (as of right now), Future World and World Showcase. Future World will open up first (typically around 9:00 AM), and World Showcase will open up at 11:00 AM.

We also found while visiting the festival of the Arts last year it is definitely a multi day event. This is especially true if you have a budding artist in your group. So plan at least two days for the 2022 Festival of the Arts. 

The Best Time to Visit Disney Festival of the Arts 2022

So you are in the process of planning your Walt Disney World trip and wondering when is the best time to visit the EPCOT Festival of the Arts? 

Luckily January and February are two of the slowest months at Walt Disney World. It’s most likely one of the main reasons they host the Disney Festival of the Arts. But hey, we’re not complaining!

The best times to visit the Disney Festival of the Arts 2022 are:

  • Jan. 5-8, Jan. 10-15, Jan 24-31
  • Feb. 1-14, Feb. 22-28

What’s New at the Festival of Arts Disney 2022

Be their guest! Some of the newest entertainment at Epcot are three new films in honor of the Festival of the Arts. In the France pavilion theater, a new “Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along” will transport you into a classic tale as old as time. Over in Canada, the film “Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360” will feature a new storyline and new scenes. Lastly, The Land pavilion in Future World will debut, “Awesome Planet,” a new film highlighting the beauty and story of Earth. 

Besides the new film additions, guests can look forward to Epcot’s new nighttime spectacular, HarmonioUS which we are hoping debuts in early 2022. Replacing Epcot Forever’s 20-year run, the new spectacular will feature fireworks, music, special lighting effects and choreographed kites on a journey through Epcot’s past, present and future. 

Guests have also been waiting for additional information regarding the newest ride in EPCOTs France pavilions. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure was expected to open in the summer of 2020 but has since been pushed. Fingers crossed we can experience this new attraction at the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2022.

street-artist-painting-mickey-mouse-during-epcot-festival-of-the-arts

Feast your eyes! When it comes to Epcot’s Festival of the Arts, Walt Disney World does a fantastic job at featuring artists who combine culture, creativity and color into their work. With artist stands in abundance throughout the park, there’s plenty of artwork for guests to admire and purchase.

On top of unforgettable exhibitions at the WDW Festival of the Art, you’ll also find artists hand painting beautiful landscapes throughout the World Showcase. Other times, you’ll see chalk artists creating gorgeous art pieces on the sidewalks of Epcot.

We feel the tons of live artists around World Showcase is one of the coolest aspects of this event. It was amazing to interact and meet so many famous Disney artists. As we’ll cover later in this post you also have the chance to purchase some amazing art from your favorite booths and artists!

Beyond those amazing experiences, Epcot Living Statues create roaming art.

Showcase Plaza Stage Performances

Be sure to check out the live art performances at the Showcase Plaza Stage. Guests can experience a variety of artists throughout the day create some amazing and unique Disney art. When artists aren’t performing guests can enjoy live music from some of the top High School bands and jazz groups in the area. We will also see acrobat performances from time to time. In years past, performances take place once every hour starting from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Be sure to download the My Disney Experience app for exact showtimes.

Culture Pavilion Galleries at  WDW Festival of the Arts

Guests can check out amazing multicultural art in the different World Showcase galleries. The following Festival of the Arts artists galleries have historically included:

  • Japan – Bijutsu-kan Gallery
  • Norway – Stave Church Gallery 
  • Mexico – Mexico Folk Art Gallery 
  • China – House of the Whispering Willows
  • American Adventure – American Heritage Gallery 

Definitely refer to your Festival of the Arts Passport at Epcot during your visit for specific information regarding what 2022 will bring!

We will be sure to keep this page up to date but based on last years events here is what we know.

At an additional cost of $39, these creative sessions are available to purchase in advance, and we highly recommend doing so. At an additional $259, Festival of the Arts premium workshops allow guests to paint their own canvas alongside a Disney Artist.

Again, if this is worth the splurge for you, we highly recommend making reservations in advance!

However, below is some additional information based on 2020’s schedule for if it does!

Disney on Broadway Concert Series Schedule (2020)

As you can see, the concert series typically features a handful of performers for a couple of weeks with two performing daily. Then at the end of that two weeks, those featured performers will all come together for a special performance. After this, a new group of performers does the same thing and that repeats twice so about a dozen performers in total are featured throughout the series. With surprising new live performance experiences to come, EPCOT will be full of acts to pay homage to the Performing Arts. Definitely refer to your handy dandy Event Guide at EPCOT during your day at the park, as showtimes and performances will vary!
