Get ready to rock with the Garden Rocks Concert Series – returning to the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival this March! This is seriously my favorite thyme of year – there’s nothing like enjoying a violet lemonade and great music on a spring day. Garden Rocks features internationally recognized artists performing Friday-Monday and showcases local Orlando talent on Tuesday-Thursday at the America Gardens Theater!
The series is jam-packed with talent from returning favorites like The Pointer Sisters, Simple Plan, and the Plain White T’s, along with fresh talent like legacy guitarist AJ Croce and GRAMMY award-winning Switchfoot. So many amazing diverse music styles in one festival; it was mint to be! Okay, I promise I’m done with the herb puns!

I had the opportunity to check out an Epcot concert last fall during the Eat to the Beat concert series. The Newsboys played a 30 minute set and was a fun way to end a day at Epcot.

If you’re ready to start exploring a Walt Disney World or Disneyland family vacation, I recommend checking out Undercover Tourist for your ticket options. I’ve already used them twice, once at Disneyland and once at Disney World and will plan to continue comparing their prices with other sites, however I usually come back to UT because they have the best deals and their instructions make it easy to add your tickets to the Disney apps.
