Entertainment

Figment-Themed Beacon of Magic

FigmentBeaconofMagicFOTA2023 13

The new show uses audio from the original Journey into Imagination attraction, with Dreamfinder and Figment. The shows begin at dusk each evening and start every fifteen minutes. It rotates between four shows, so you may have to wait to catch the new Figment one.

The other currently running Beacons of Magic shows at Spaceship Earth are the original show, EPCOT40, and Rainbow Connection.

Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt

Figment's Brush with the Masters

Guests can purchase maps to participate in Figment’s Brush With the Masters. To complete the scavenger hunt, match the corresponding sticker to the correct pavilion’s frame — each featuring Figment in a classic work of art. When your palette of places is complete, head to World Traveler or Disney Traders to receive your prize!

Chalk Full of Characters

Chalk Full of Characters collage

Guests can participate in a self-led scavenger hunt to find various “chalk” character decals throughout World Showcase (plus one near the Imagination Pavilion). Unlike Figment’s Brush With the Masters, there’s no cost (but also no prize).

Expression Section

Guests can get in on the creative fun with the return of Expression Section. The experience consists of painting a large mural in numbered sections. Expression Section is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., subject to weather.

Spin Art

Art gets physical at the 2023 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts with the return of Spin Art to the Germany Pavilion. A guest writes their name on a canvas, then chooses up to four different colors. Then, they hop onto a stationary bike and pedal to create their own unique piece of spin art. One experience is $19.

  1. Does anyone know if you purchase art from the festival booths, would Disney ship it home for you like they can do with their merch?
