Experts share their secrets in a series of educational (and artistic!) seminars. Learn how to transform paper into delicate sculptures during the Origami class or take your food photography game up a notch during Food Styling 101. Seminars are complimentary, but be sure to reserve your spot and arrive early for the best seating.
It may look too good to eat, but don’t let that stop you! Satisfy your sweet tooth with Pop’t Art: Abstract Designed Sugar Cookie with Chocolate Hazelnut Filling or for the more savory, try the Shrimp Ceviche with Lime Mint Foam. The seven “food studios” throughout Epcot World Showcase dazzle with culinary masterpieces.
Sing along to your favorite songs from Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Tarzan and more, during the Disney on Broadway Concert Series at the America Gardens Theatre. The curtain rises for this star-studded concert series nightly at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Fun is in the journey with Disney Figment's Brush with the Masters, a scavenger hunt through World Showcase Plaza. Experts sleuths who find all of the the little dragons receive an artsy surprise.
Become the star of some most famous paintings in the world, as you stand inside recreated works of art for a unique photo opp. With options like Edvard Munch’s The Scream or the classic Mona Lisa, your Instagram feed is in for a treat.
