The 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is HERE!
We’ve already shared a look at the FULL booth menus for the Festival, the Disney on Broadway Concert Series lineup, and more. We are experiencing everything the Festival has to offer and sharing all of those details with you. After spending a decent amount of money to enter EPCOT and eat your way around the booths, you might be looking for something fun & FREE to do during your day. And for that we’ve got you covered! There are a number of free things to do at the Festival of the Arts, including a super special scavenger hunt!
There are all kinds of amazing details hidden within each World Showcase country that you can view on any ordinary day in EPCOT, but during the Festival of the Arts, the countries get some extra special hidden pieces of art that you won’t want to miss!
During the Festival Disney hosts something called “Chalk Full of Character.” Essentially, it’s a mini (and FREE) scavenger hunt that you can do around the World Showcase pavilions. In most of the pavilions you’ll find a special chalk drawing of a Disney character (or two or three).
How many drawings will you find? You’ll have to make your way through each of the countries to find out!
If you want to find all of these on your own and not be spoiled as to any of the characters you can find along the way, then bookmark this post and come back to it after you’ve done your search to see if you spotted all of the ones we found!
As we made our way around EPCOT, these are the pieces of chalk art that we found.
In the Mexico pavilion, near the entrance to the pyramid structure we found a very special friend from Coco…
…it’s Dante! And he’s in his beautifully colorful alebrije form.
In Norway, you’ll want to search the tops of the buildings for some characters from the Frozen Fever short.
Yup, it’s those oh-so-adorable snowgies!
In the China pavilion you’ll want to look near one building for a chalk image of Little Brother from Mulan!
You go get that bone, Little Brother!
Over at Refreshment Outpost, we spotted some troublemakers having a fight on the top of a building.
It’s the hyenas from The Lion King and it looks like there’s a bit of a debacle over just who is going to be able to eat that tasty snack!
In the Germany pavilion you’ll want to look closely at the buildings. Search for one with a red sign that says “clocks and crafts.” Can you see the character hidden there?
It’s Pascal from Tangled! This chameleon sure has done a fantastic job blending in with the environment.
We found another Pascal who seems like he’s been taking some painting lessons from Rapunzel…
…and this Pascal stealing a snack!
At the Italy pavilion you’ll find Luca, Alberto…
…and even a little friend from the sea. They’re all near the outdoor cart/kiosk.
We also spotted a very famous bug in Italy, Jiminy Cricket!
Here’s a closer look at our favorite conscience.
In the American Adventure pavilion we found a cute little mouse holding a kite. He’s close to the Kidcot Fun Stop.
If you don’t recognize this little guy, this is actually Amos from a short called Ben and Me. According to IMDB, in the short, the mouse tells the story of how he guided Benjamin Franklin to “success and prominence.”
In the Morocco pavilion we spotted Abu from Aladdin.
Uh oh Abu, are you trying to take those things from the pavilion?
In France, near L’Artisan des Glaces we spotted Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast.
He’ll light your way as you go get some DELICIOUS ice cream!
We also spotted a trio of French kittens by one of the entrances to Les Vins des Chefs de France! None other than Marie, Toulouse, and Berlioz from The Aristocats!
In the United Kingdom pavilion, you can search for Peter Pan’s shadow.
If only we had a sewing kit so we could sew that shadow down!
We also found a couple of outlaws in the UK! Robin Hood, Little John, and Skippy were all by Lords and Ladies!
In Canada we found a SUPER hidden character. Do you see it?
It’s the little steamed bun from the Bao short! As Pixar notes, the short explores that parent-child relationship through the “lens” of the Chinese immigrant community in Canada so its placement here is totally fitting. It was also directed by Canadian director Domee Shi.
In Canada you can also find Koda from Brother Bear.
Looks like someone has been doing some fishing!
That’s a look at all of the chalk art drawings we’ve found so far. If we find any more we’ll be sure to update this post. Which chalk art drawings did you find? Tell us in the comments! And stay tuned for ALL of the Festival of the Arts news you need to know about!
