Those upset that Epcot's Food and Wine Festival is already over might be happy to find out that Epcot will host a brand new festival this January.

Running from Jan. 13 through Feb. 20, 2017, the International Festival of the Arts will host a combination of visual, culinary and performing arts, Disney announced on their blog.
