  • Jump into photo-ops located throughout Epcot, such as the Peter Pan Storybook installation by the United Kingdom pavilion where guests can flap their fins in Mermaid Lagoon or get their pirate on at Skull Rock.
  • Grab a paintbrush and add color to a wall mural along World Showcase Plaza.
  • Join Figment’s Brush with the Masters, a scavenger hunt where the friendly dragon has painted himself into famous pieces of art in each World Showcase pavilion.
  • Purchase works by Disney’s iconic artists in displays throughout World Showcase.
  • Watch visiting artists as they create new pieces, from Disney-inspired works to creative art across diverse mediums.
  • Create festival-inspired T-shirts and candles.

Yeah that's a bit steep, but the artwork is very well done, and really captures what Epcot looked like.

Nice to see those recent styised Epcot 'Attraction posters' finally get released officially as prints. Too bad it's only 100 of each. Perhaps they will do a wider release of the images in a different form. That set made for the display at last years D23 Expo was stunning. They are a welcome edition to the walls of the Odyssey at Epcot. -

Awesome, I was hoping they'd sell them eventually. Do you remember which one's were available?

Such a great festival!! The broadway shows were great and watching the artists at work and getting to meet them is so enjoyable. Trevor Carlton’s performances, as always, are a real highlight and I like where the stage is this year, seems to attract more people to stay and watch.

The dca version of these festivals is not nearly as good as the Epcot versions when it comes to the food booths. The extra entertainment can be quite good though.

Ah, if I went to DCA more than once every few years, I probably would’ve visited one of their festivals and known this. Most of my SoCal trips involve two days at DL and move on to the rest of the region, with DCA tacked on every once in a while.

It's very nice. Perhaps the direction to Mr. Kaz was "create an image that obscures all of the construction work going on during the festival."

Couldn't you just bring mobile ordering for them? Not a fan of the idea tbh.

You can buy the D23 attraction posters during the festival apparently! Limited to 100 each and numbered on the front. $90 (oof)

Oops. Just realized that this tweet is from DCA and not EPCOT. Altered my post above to make that clear. Yeah, it would be nice to come to EPCOT.

They’ve been using this system at DCA for a little while now. I remember reading about it for last year’s Lunar New Year or F&W. So it’s not really a test at this point, just something that isn’t well known or well utilized. It’d be great if they started using it here though!

tirianJan 17, 2020

That would be amazing during F&W! I hope this test works.

EDIT: I thought this was at the Arts Festival in EPCOT, but it's in DCA. Tho, would be nice to come to WDW. OK... this is... interesting.... So, I guess this means every festival cashier is a cashier for every festival booth? That would have come in handy last festival (Holiday). My friend and I had our booths planned: Morocco, Israel, Beermany. We purchased at the first; walked our meals to the second and purchased there; walked to Germany and got a table; friend then went and purchased beer. Ate it all. In this new system, we could have ordered it all at the first cashier and then just have gone straight to each counter. I guess.
