Also, remember to pace yourself; it’s 1-1/3 miles around World Showcase. Take it slow and enjoy some of the entertainment offered at individual pavilions in between sampling offerings. And, to get the most from your food budget, consider picking a few choices and sharing menu items with your group.
  • A complimentary Festival Passport is available. Each marketplace has its own unique sticker design. Visit the Food Studios to receive your Festival Passport. 
  • Pick up an EPCOT Festival of the Arts themed mini Disney Gift Card — a fast, easy and secure way to carry your money on your wrist. Just load or reload the card with any amount you desire starting with as little as $15 and swipe. You can reload your card as many times as you wish using cash, credit, or debit at the majority of festival kiosks.
  • Snack your way around the World with Disney Dining Plan Snack Credits! Snack credits can be used to purchase select food items at Food Studios around World Showcase during the EPCOT Festival of the Arts. Look for the Disney Dining Plan Snack Symbol to identify snack items available with Disney’s Dining Plan snack credit.
