PHOTOS: Hidden Disney Characters Art Around World Showcase for Festival of the Arts

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

As part of the 2019 International Festival of the Arts at Epcot, art of Disney characters have started popping up all over World Showcase. This addition was unannounced, and is not advertised in the festival booklet. However, if you take a stroll through the various pavilions and keep your eyes peeled, you might find your favorite character hiding just around the corner.

There doesn’t appear to be art in every country so far. We scoured World Showcase, and found characters in every country except Mexico, Norway, Japan and Canada. Since this was unannounced, we don’t have an official list of characters. There’s the possibility they will add more. We’ll just have to keep our eyes open!

Here’s a list of who we found, what country we found them in, and what film they’re from. Feel free to skip this if you want to find them yourself!

China – Mushu and Cri-kee (Mulan)
China – Little Brother (Mulan)
Africa Outpost – Timon and Pumbaa (The Lion King)
Germany – Pascal (Tangled)

Morocco – Abu (Aladdin)
France – Lumiere (Beauty and the Beast)
France – Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz (The Aristocats)

France – Remy (Ratatouille)
France – Emile (Ratatouille)
The United Kingdom – Skippy (Robin Hood)

We had a lot of fun searching for all the characters. It’s a good activity to do with friends, and gives you something new to do if you already did the Figment “Brush with the Masters” scavenger hunt at last year’s festival. Let us know if you find any additional characters while you’re out exploring the 2019 International Festival of the Arts!

Just more IP in the World Showcase where it does not belong.

Those aren’t permanent, right? If it’s just for the festival, cool. Otherwise, it’s terrible.
