The 2024 EPCOT Festival of the Arts is underway, and there is SO much to see and do. There are TONS of artists showcasing their work. We’ve got chalk art to admire. We’ve got the Disney on Broadway concert series. We’ve even got a massive paint-by-numbers mural.
More importantly, though, we’ve got a LOT of food and drinks. We’ve already given you a full rundown of all the food booths, but we recently learned about a SECRET menu at one of those booths. So we’re headed there to see what’s up!
So let’s head on over to El Artista Hambriento (aka The Hungry Artist) Festival of the Arts booth in the Mexico Pavilion. It’s no secret that we’re already BIG fans of this booth, and we’ve already been back to eat more of the Carne Asada and Tostada de Langosta. There are also some delicious drinks here, too.
Well, there’s a SECRET menu item here, too. It’s the Art-garita made with festival smoky banana bliss margarita, with the addition of blue curaçao for $17.50. The banana puree in the drink is heavier, so it sits on the bottom, giving the drink a layered effect. You’re given a paintbrush to stir it all up — GENIUS, right? It’s served in a plastic stemless glass rimmed with sweet syrup and pinkish-red salt. This baby is SO colorful!
If you don’t stir it, you’re going to taste a lot of that smoky mezcal right off the bat, but once it’s all mixed up, the banana mellows out the flavors. We LOVE a blue drink (y’all know that), and the curaçao adds a hint of citrus flavor. It is, however, pricier than many of the other drinks at the festival, but you’re paying extra for the colorful fun.
You can’t order this drink, though, unless you say the secret phrase. That phrase is “Dom Corona sent me.” You see, Dom Corona is an artist at this year’s festival who created the drink! Cool, right? So it’s a lot of fun to order, and when we spoke to Cast Members, they said it really is a secret item. It’s not listed on the menu, and there are no signs indicating that it’s available.

So if you’re feeling like something a little different at the festival, say the secret phrase and get a drink that might suddenly make you VERY popular in EPCOT (people will ask you where you got it, trust us!).
