The lineup includes stars from "Frozen," "Freaky Friday," "The Little Mermaid," "Mary Poppins," "Beauty and the Beast," "The Lion King," "Tarzan," and "Aladdin."

3. **Culinary Arts Adventures:**
Over 15 Food Studios throughout EPCOT will blend delectable flavors with an artistic twist. New dishes and drinks will tempt your taste buds, such as the Rainbow Cake with freeze-dried SKITTLES® bite-sized candies and the Red Wine-braised Beef Short Rib. The Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine allows guests to explore sweet and savory offerings in all the colors of the rainbow. Festival Passport stamps can lead to a complimentary surprise at Deco Delights Food Studio after collecting five stamps.

4. **Interactive Experiences:**
Dive into the magic at Animation Academy, held daily at America Gardens Theatre, where you can learn drawing skills from Disney character experts. Join fellow artists at Expression Section: A Paint by Numbers Mural to leave your creative mark on a larger-than-life wall mural. Kid’s Chalk Art and artful photo ops are also available for visitors to express their artistic side.

5. **Visual Arts and Merchandise:**
Explore galleries and meet the imaginative artists behind the works at the festival. Figment, everyone's favorite purple dragon, takes center stage on a variety of festival merchandise, from household items and décor to apparel and trading items. The mini festival-themed Disney Gift Card offers a convenient way to pay, and Figment’s Brush with the Master’s Scavenger Hunt provides a delightful journey throughout World Showcase for guests of all ages.
