The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is in full swing, offering culinary delights, vibrant art and live entertainment daily. Between sampling delicious dishes and enjoying wonderful works of art, be sure not to miss all the fun photo ops that have been sprinkled around the park.

One of the best ways to celebrate the festival is by becoming part of the art yourself! There are several artful photo ops where you and your family can cross the Delaware with George Washington, scream along with Edward Munch, attempt your best Mona Lisa smile or step into an impressionistic work by Monet. These famous masterpiece photo opportunities can be found in multiple locations throughout World Showcase.

A new photo op that has debuted just this year puts you right into the pages of a giant Peter Pan storybook. The two pages that are open in this massive book feature memorable spots from Neverland, "Mermaid Lagoon" on one side and "Skull Rock" on the other - perfect for snapping a pic of the mermaids or pirates in your family! You can find this unique photo opportunity in the United Kingdom pavilion, and if you're lucky, you may even spot Peter Pan himself nearby.

A fun way to commemorate your visit to the Epcot Festival of the Arts is with a photo in front of one of special festival signs or displays. The park entrance features colorful rainbows and a Figment topiary. Plus, the PhotoPass photographer has props you can hold in your photo like a giant paintbrush or a paint can with a rainbow of colors coming out of the top. Inside the park, be on the lookout for PhotoPass photographers with special cutout picture frames that you can hold in front of you for that perfect shot.

Disney PhotoPass photographers also offer an incredible feature you'll only be able to experience during the event. They can actually bring in Figment himself, by overlaying him into your portraits using a little bit of Disney magic. Just ask the photographer, and they'll tell you which direction to look at, or where point, and when you pick up your photos, you'll find one extra purple dragon added in, just for you!

While many of these photo opportunities allow you to use your own camera, there are some that require the special Disney PhotoPass touch. With Memory Maker One Day, you can get unlimited digital downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass photos taken during a single day at the Walt Disney World Resort for just $69. That includes all these great festival spots, as well as your on-ride photos, character greetings and so much more! You can purchase it at the Camera Center near Spaceship Earth or from the My Disney Experience app.
