NEWS: Menus Revealed for the 2023 EPCOT Festival of the Arts plus Figment Popcorn Bucket News!

The 2023 EPCOT International Festival of the arts is just over a week away and Disney has released the menus for the Food Studios! Disney has also confirmed that the crazy popular Figment Popcorn Bucket that saw record crowds (and record resale costs on eBay) will be back with an updated EPCOT 40th Anniversary strap. Catch all the details below.





 

Here are all the details from Disney Cast Member Nicole Cantore:

Calling all festival fans and foodies! The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts presented by AT&T is just around the corner. From January 13 through February 20, 2023, this festival will celebrate the creation and beauty of cuisines, music, and, of course, art.

This year, the chefs and mixologists have crafted works of art for you to indulge in. With nearly 15 Food Studios, there are plenty of returning favorites, like the classic Wild Mushroom Risotto, as well as new treats premiering on the foodie stage, like the Hummingbird Cake from The Artist’s Table. As you eat your way around the World Showcase, be sure to pick up a Festival Passport to take part in the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine, a returning food stroll featuring culinary delights. With each bite, collect stamps by purchasing five of these decadent dishes to redeem a special prize from Deco Delights to enjoy.

If you love Figment, you’re in luck, because the festival is giving our favorite imagination fan some extra love. New this year, you can explore Figment’s Inspiration Station at the Odyssey: Art, Food, and Little Sparks of Magic. And not only that, but you can bring home Figment with the brand-new Fruity Fig Bar Figment Disney Munchling. This adorable, limited-edition Disney Munchling features the sweet smell of berries and can be found both at the merchandise locations at the festival and on shopDisney. And the Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket is back, but this year with a new EPCOT 40thAnniversary strap! As you can see, there’s plenty of Figment to go around.

I think you’ve waited long enough. I present to you the Disney Eats Foodie Guide to EPCOT International Festival of the Arts presented by AT&T!
