According to construction data, Disney World is planning on bringing Festival kiosks to the newly opened World Celebration Gardens at EPCOT. In particular, the activation alcove closest to Creations Shop has been earmarked as “EPCOT Creations Festival Kiosk #1” and “EPCOT Creations Festival Kiosk #2”. As you can see in our photos below, infrastructure has been preinstalled to allow for the operation of the Festival kiosks.
What remains to be seen is if the kiosks will be used for food & drink, or as an outdoor merchandise cart. Other areas yet to be opened are specifically designated as merchandise kiosks, so it’s possible that the Creations Festival Kiosks could be multi-use or for food/drink.
Disney has previously indicated that they are working to bring Festival entertainment and offerings to the front of the park, and that the World Celebration Gardens will be used to do so in the future. We may start to see more prominent Festival offerings for the upcoming Festival of the Arts, or perhaps the Flower & Garden Festival depending on when Disney will finally complete construction of CommuniCore Hall, which remains behind construction walls.
We expect that the kiosks will be used in some capacity for the upcoming Festival of the Arts as permits have already been filed for work in the area.
