Artful Epcot began yesterday as Epcot opened its gates to the beginning of the 3rd annual Epcot International Festival of the Arts. This festival already feels like such an institution at Epcot that it's hard to believe it's only in its 3rd year. And you'll be able to enjoy it every day between now and February 25th.
Today was a gorgeous Saturday, the first weekend of the festival, and the start of the long MLK weekend here in central Florida – so you can begin to imagine what the crowds were like throughout the park. But you'd better believe I was there to grab all of the information that I could for you – not to mention some food and fun for myself and the kids.
So without further ado, here are ALL of the menu boards for this year's #ArtfulEpcot – not to mention some of the information boards, the full rundown for the Disney on Broadway Concert Series at the America Gardens Theater with shows at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. on select days, and a sneak peek at the AP magnet for the event and some of the PhotoPass shots being offered.
