The first Epcot International Festival of the Arts kicked off this weekend.  It runs weekends through February 20th and is definitely a must see!  The World Showcase comes alive among artists, musicians, and performers.

Figment's Brush with the Master's Scavenger Hunt

Figment’s Brush with the Master’s Scavenger Hunt

Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt bring excitement for even the youngest art lover.  As Epcot has done in the past, items are hidden around the World Showcase and you hunt for them.  You can either do it on your own or purchase a map with coordinating stickers ($6.99 plus tax).  Included in your map purchase is your Masterpiece treasure at the end.

You can purchase the map at Pin Central, Disney Traders or World Traveler.  Once you have your map you are on your way.  We always go left and start at Mexico.  We weren’t sure what exactly we were looking for.  We knew the paintings were somewhere in the country, but that was about it.  In the past the items have been outside and in plain view.  (Egg Hunt and Ratatouille)

Map and Stickers

We were lucky and someone gave us a hint on where the one in Mexico was located.  Once you find the first one, it does get a little easier and you now know what you are looking for.  The paintings are on the walls and blend in easily.  If you are not familiar with the original works of art, Disney has you covered.  Figment has put himself in all the paintings.  This was a little confusing for my 6-year-old since it didn’t look exactly like the sticker.  However, once she realized what was going on, she thought it was funny.

Figment also had the pictures frames specifically for the scavenger hunt.  Each one has his face on the bottom of the frame making it easy to tell the difference from the real artwork.

The stickers that come with the map

This was definitely one of the harder scavenger hunts we have done.  With the paintings in the buildings, it makes it more difficult if you have a stroller trying to get in and move around.  There is also A LOT of artwork on the walls.  Looking at all of them gets a little overwhelming-especially for the younger crowd.

While it was fun, it took us a lot of time to find the paintings.  We had planned a half-day at Epcot and did not finish the scavenger hunt.  We took time to visit characters and take in some of the other activities going on.  Disney Diva Tip: I highly recommend getting your prize when you purchase your map.

Figment put himself in some very famous paintings

Being that my kids are 6 and 3, this was definitely something we could have skipped this time.  It was tough for them to locate the paintings easily.  Personally, I didn’t enjoy having to go into every gift shop.  If we would have brought the stroller it would have been very difficult to maneuver in and out of all the shops with the amount of people who were there.

Figment at Epcot’s International Art Festival

 

I've been going to Disney most of my life on vacations, but thanks to the Air Force we now live within driving distance! We bought annual passes before the boxes were unpacked. My husband and I have enjoyed watching our princess obsessed 4 year old and Mickey-loving toddler experince the Disney Magic. When not at Disney you can find me attepting to be crafty, trying to read a book or wrangling the two kids, two dogs and two cats.
