inline imageEpcot International Festival of the Arts at Walt Disney World Resort will launch its annual celebration of the visual, culinary and performing arts beginning Jan. 18. The popular event will continue for 39 days through Feb. 25, 2019, with more live music than ever before, along with fresh tastes to savor and new artwork to admire and bring home.

New this year, the Disney on Broadway Concert Series expands to seven days a week during the festival, providing more opportunities than ever before to bask in live Disney magic. Each week, different pairs of Disney on Broadway stars will take the America Gardens Theatre stage to sing favorite songs from award-winning Disney on Broadway productions. The lineup will rotate regularly, featuring music from shows such as "The Lion King," "Frozen and "Beauty and the Beast." Performers this year include:
  • Kerry Butler ("Beauty and the Beast") and Kevin Massey ("Tarzan")
  • Meredith Inglesby ("The Little Mermaid") and Steve Blanchard ("Beauty and the Beast")
  • Arielle Jacobs and Adam Jacobs ("Aladdin")
  • Heidi Blickenstaff ("Freaky Friday") and Gavin Lee ("Mary Poppins")
  • Ashley Brown ("Mary Poppins") and Josh Strickland ("Tarzan")
  • Kissy Simmons and Alton Fitzgerald White ("The Lion King")
The concert series is included with park admission; showtimes are 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m. nightly. The Disney on Broadway Concert Series Dining Package is available at participating Epcot restaurants and guarantees show seating; package bookings open Nov. 8, 2018, at Disneyworld.com. Reservations can also be made by calling (407) WDW-DINE.

In addition to the concert series, the Epcot International Festival of the Arts will feature 13 Food Studios, plus additional creative food and beverage offerings around Epcot with an expanded selection of delicious new tastes to savor:
  • The Artists Table will feature beef wellington with mushroom bordelaise, fennel cream and roasted baby vegetables

Guests may fan their inspirational flames by bringing a piece of the festival home with them. Art collectors and Disney enthusiasts alike will find artwork for sale throughout the entire park, from the Art of Disney store to Festival Markets. In addition, special merchandise will be available at Mouse Gear and other Epcot locations featuring the festivals logo adorning shirts, mugs, totes and other charming items.
