“Edutainment” is intrinsic to Epcot’s DNA, and Walt Disney World’s “Epcot International Festival of the Arts” is one of the best examples of education and entertainment intersecting at Walt Disney World.
Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager, Walt Disney World Resort reported on the festival’s seminar series:
This year’s seminar lineup includes art seminars in everything from photography to pop-up book design, as well as deep dives into different aspects of Disney history, including traditional Disney animation, 3D storytelling at Walt Disney World and more. Odyssey Festival Showplace seminars are included in theme park admission and no signups are required.
