“Let Them Eat Art!” When the whimsical world of Walt Disney World® is blended with artisanal magic of gastronomy, you get one of Orlando’s favorite festivals! The festival will offer a variety of food, entertainment, art and more that you will only find at this event.

All kitchens will be open daily for the entire duration of the park’s operational hours. Choose from mouth-watering, eye-popping delicacies at over 15 locations throughout the park! Enjoy Beef Wellington at The Artist’s Table (at The American Adventure), cool the kids down with an Orange Cream Shake in an adorable souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup, or satisfy your sweet tooth at Decadent Delights (at Promenade Refreshments) and try The Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine Redemption Cook or enjoy a fun beer flight.

Please be aware that, just like all the other food & beverage options require a separate purchase, Festival-exclusive food and beverages also available for purchase.



It would not be a Disney® Experience without live performances throughout the park! You can be sure to catch all of the action all around Future World and World Showcase like the Voices of Liberty – The Disney Songbook, acrobatic acts, pianists, JAMMitors, and awe-inspiring, high-energy on-stage performance by artists who will paint your favorite Disney characters in just minutes and more!

All special performances, like the Art Defying Gravity and Visual Art in Performance will only be held Thursday through Sunday at the World Showcase.
