Epcot International Festival of the Arts News!

Returning January 14! 

We now have the dates for the 2022 Epcot International Festival of the Arts! This wonderful event will take place January 14 through February 21. Flower & Garden is my favorite festival at Epcot, but this is a very close second. There is so much to see and do! It’s also been announced that the Disney on Broadway Concert Series will return for the Festival of the Arts in 2022. I had a feeling that it would be back when the celebrity narrators were announced for the Candlelight Processional. Here’s the information from Disney Parks Blog.
