Disney’s Eat to the Beat- Epcot Concerts are a feast for the senses
Amazing nightly Concerts are part of the annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival that will be running from September 28 – November 11, 2012. This is one of Disney’s most popular and extravagant social events. The festival includes wine tasting and delicious dining events from countries all over the World that take place in their World Showcase counterparts, the Disney Resorts, and beyond and should be a part or your Disney vacation this summer
This is a must- visit for Foodies and chefs alike. The concerts take place in The American Adventure section of the park, on the American Gardens Stage. This stage is host to other Disney-run concerts all throughout the year, providing spread-out bench seating among beautiful trees in a spacious outdoor area. In true Disney style, this area is always wheelchair friendly.
The International Food and Wine Festival is known for its fabulous mix of wine, people and food from a variety of cultures. The accompanying concerts are no different. The mix of musical styles paired with the festival and the beautiful details of each country in The World Showcase itself is truly a feast for all the senses.
If you miss one of the concert days, no worries: Artists have 2-3 night performances, giving everyone a second chance to get in on the action! The magical atmosphere of Disney mixed with the sophistication of this event makes the occasion a great opportunity for a romantic date or for parents to bring their older children (high school and college aged kids really eat this event up!) You’re never too old for Disney or for dinner with your folks. This event truly lets you enjoy a more grown-up side of Disney World.
