Epcot Festival of the Arts 2022 Foodie Guide

As anyone who has ever been to one of the Epcot festivals knows, one of the highlights of these seasonal soirees is the food, and the same can be said for the Epcot Festival of the Arts. From colorful bites to artsy sips, you’ll find a rainbow of themed dishes and drinks that are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious to eat. 

So, bring an artistic eye and an empty stomach as we dig into all the tasty food available at the 2022 Epcot International Festival of the Arts.

Disney Festival of the Arts 2022 Food 

Whether the Food & Wine Festival’s global marketplaces or Flower & Garden Festival’s outdoor kitchens, each Epcot festival puts a different twist on the food booth. At the Epcot Festival of the Arts, these culinary outposts are called food studios. 

Sprinkled around World Showcase and into the rest of the park like pixie dust (or chocolate chips in the perfect cookie), food studios take their inspiration from everything from art periods to cultural culinary traditions. And don’t be surprised if some bites and bevvies are too pretty for you to want to eat – this creative fare was designed with your eyes, tastebuds and camera in mind.

Can’t Decide? Sample the Rainbow During the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine

With a landscape of flavors to try, narrowing it down to just a few items can be a tall order. So, if you need help deciding, let the good folks over on Disney’s culinary team and the rainbow do some of the decision-making for you. 

Just open your festival passport for the list of featured foods, with each representing a different hue of the rainbow. Then, as you eat your way from color to color, remember to collect each item’s corresponding stamp. When you’re done, simply show your stamps to a cast member at the Deco Delights food studio to be treated to a paintable (with icing!) chocolate-chip cookie. 

Well, that’s a wrap on all the tasty treats available at the Epcot art festival this year. It’s a deliciously daunting list of items, and we can’t wait to try them all.
