Disney on Broadway Concert Series Returns with New Performers

The popular Disney on Broadway Concert Series returns to America Gardens Theatre with three daily performances headlined by Broadway stars who reprise favourite songs from past performances in award-winning shows.

  • Additional January and February performances still to be announced.
All shows are included with theme park admission. The best way to experience a performance is by reserving a Disney on Broadway Dining Package, which guarantees seating for one show on the day of the dining experience. Packages are available to book starting Nov. 14, 2019, at participating Epcot restaurants; guests can visit ArtfulEpcot.com or call (407) WDW-FEST to make a reservation.

Food Studios Serve Up the Culinary Arts

Twelve festival Food Studios plus additional food and beverage locations will take culinary arts to the next level with scrumptious, imaginative dishes – artistically sculpted and ready for camera closeups.

Festival guests will discover seven-days-a-week fun including a colourful new interactive mural, that everyone in the family can help paint, workshops, artful photo ops, art galleries and mesmerising performance art like the daily Epcot Living Statues and Art Defying Gravity shows.
