It’s almost hEAR! The Epcot International Festival of the Arts for 2020 is right around the corner, debuting on January 17th and painting through February 24th, 2020. Similar to past years, the Annual Passholder Special Offers include dining, performances, merchandise and of course, that collectible must-have, the AP magnet. We’ve finally gotten our first peek at the new magnet, courtesy of Disney’s Festival website.
Artful Mickey Annual Passholder Offerings Magnet
On your first visit to Epcot during Festival of the Arts, stop by the temporary Mouse Gears location in Innovations East to pick up your complimentary 2020 Festival of the Arts Annual Passholder Magnet. Remember to bring your driver’s license or photo ID to pick up your prize. Last year crowds were flocking for the purple pigment of the Figment magnet, but this year, Disney is returning to our classic Mascot, Mickey. This is perfect for the Year of the Rat, and with a touch of “purple paint,” the magnet suits this year’s Festival very well.
Y’all don’t forget that presenting your Annual Pass at the register can earn you 20% off merchandise at most Walt Disney World locations! This can include many of the art stands around World Showcase and Future World, so keep that little yellow card flashing! Passholder Exclusives will feature our favorite imaginative Figment and plenty of other collectibles for 2020. We have shopper’s sorrow for missing out on that tie-dye spirit jersey from last year!
As an Annual Passholder, you can save 10% on Disney on Broadway Concert Series Dining Packages. Enjoy a fabulous breakfast, lunch or dinner before attending show-stopping numbers from legendary Disney musicals performed by sensational duos. Every 2 weeks you’ll see a new stage of singers and hear all sorts of Disney tunes. See Disney website for a full schedule of dates and artists. Book your meal online or by calling Academy Travel at 609-978-0740. Be sure to have your Annual Pass nearby. You can also present your pass at your meal and receive a retroactive discount.
At this year’s Festival in Epcot, you’ll find traditional art seminars and workshops, live performing arts (I hope we see the living statues again!) and food studios and workshops. Creative Eats will lace the Park and if you hear some music each night, it’s surely that Broadway Concert Series. The event has grown from a small festival to one of our favorite “seasons” at Epcot!
