A few dishes you can expect at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts

Theme parks are typically less congested from January to March, so it's no surprise that Disney's brass chose to launch their newest festival this month.

In addition to showcasing the visual and performing arts, the inaugural Epcot International Festival of the Arts has plenty to offer by way of the culinary arts as well. "Food Studios" hawking artistic (sometimes postmodern) renditions of everything from the classic Reuben to chai have been set up throughout the Epcot World Showcase.

Here's a sample of the painterly dishes you can expect to savor at the festival, which runs Fridays through Mondays until Feb. 20.
