I had the opportunity last year to make it to Epcot for one concert in the Eat to the Beat series. A band I’d followed since the 90’s were playing, so I brought the family down to enjoy the parks and watch the show. The Newsboys played a 30 minute, 8 song set. I would imagine most shows are similar as they have to clear everyone seated, then seat the next round of guests in order to have 3 shows each night. We went to the 8pm show and had time after to use the restroom and grab snacks before the fireworks show at 9pm.
What are your thoughts on this year’s lineup? Will you be making a trip to see one of these bands? Comment below to let us know your thoughts!
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.
