We’re live from Epcot’s fourth annual International Festival of the Arts!
We got a lot of boxes to check off on our Foodie to-do list (we’re eating ALL the new festival foods and reviewing them for you here today!) but we were surprised to learn this morning that some of the food booths that should be open aren’t yet!
The 2020 Epcot Festival of the Arts food studios were scheduled to open with the rest of the World Showcase at 11 AM, but such was not the case with three of the ones we visited this morning! A Cast Member we spoke with at Pop Eats! confirmed they were unable to open on time due to “technical difficulties”.
And the same story goes for Test Track’s Cool Wash. While this Future World kiosk isn’t a festival food booth, a Cast Member informed us their “slushy machines were broken.” He didn’t know when they’d be up runnin’, but we’ll keep you posted!
Lastly, the Deconstructed Dish was also struggling to open this morning. A Cast Member out front was apologizing to guests for the delay! Deconstructed Dish is where you’ll find the new-this-year Rainboba Sparkling Water which you can read our review of HERE!
We’ll keep our eyes on these booths, but for now, we’ll be checking off some of the other festival’s dishes on our list! We don’t think these festival booths will be closed for very long, though, so fingers-crossed they smooth out their first-day-of-the-festival wrinkles quickly!
Were you looking forward to visiting any of these food booths first? Let us know if their delayed openings have changed your plans in the comments below!
