PHOTOS: New EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2020 Guidemap Released
Are you ready for #ArtfulEpcot? We sure are! The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2020 starts tomorrow, January 17 and runs through February 24. We know many festival-goers are currently busy planning and building their must-do (and must-eat) lists, so we were able to preview a sneak peek of the new guidemap for the festival to help them plan even further. Plus, this new guidemap offers some insight into the ever-evolving EPCOT, reflecting all of the latest changes to the park’s landscape that affect both Festival offerings and park touring alike.
The guidemap is presented in its usual artsy style, with splotches of paint along the edges. The park encourages the use of the hashtag #ArtfulEpcot across social media.
Next, we delve into the interior map and listings. Among the notable changes: The Animation Academy will now be moving to the America Gardens Theatre. Performances like Art Defying Gravity and Visual Art in Performance will now be taking place at the Showcase Plaza Stage. (These used to take place at the Fountain of Nations stage.)
The new Paint-By-Number mural will be taking over this segment of the current Innoventions West demolition construction walls.
Finally, in the France Pavilion you have the new Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, Impressions de France now in 4K, and a new exhibit inside the Palais du Cinema pre-show room titled “Tale As Old As Time: French Storytelling on Stage and Screen.” In the Canada Pavilion, you have the newly reimagined Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 3D.
