Other activities for the Epcot Festival of the Arts will include the Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt. Here, you will search for clues that lead to the Figment. Guests will be able to purchase a World Showcase map and stickers at Pin Central, Disney Traders or World Traveler. Then you will need to visit each country’s pavilion in the World Showcase to find artwork in a Figment-themed frame and locate the purple dragon within the picture. Once you’ve found Figment, simply attach the corresponding location sticker to the correct pavilion on your map. When completed, turn in your map at Disney Traders for an artsy surprise.

Of course, you can’t forget shopping! Pick up your Epcot Festival of the Arts merchandise at Art of Disney, Mouse Gear, or World Traveler. Choose from mugs, tee shirts, totes and more.

I can honestly say that I’m so excited about this event! It seems like it’s going to be a really fun experience.
