As Halloween comes to pass and the Christmas holiday season arrives, there are still some great concerts left to enjoy at Epcot, and Walt Disney World Annual Passholders can have some prime seating. From now until the end of the International Food & Wine Festival, those with a WDW Annual Pass can get special reserved seating. That’s not too bad at all considering some of the incredible music talents still set to perform.
This is a true treat for Annual Passholders, as they won’t have to bother with booking a dining package or waiting in the standby line which can stretch hours at times. According to the Orlando Sentinel, it’s a rather simple process, but one that must be followed in order to get the reserved seating.
Guests must go to the Festival Center, which is located in Mission: Space in Future World, and they must have their valid WDW Annual Pass and a photo ID. Guests can then pick up a badge for the concert that day, which will admit them to the reserved seating area.
Badges are handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis, and there is a limited amount of them for each of the remaining “Eat to the Beat” concerts.
Even though the Epcot Food & Wine Festival is going to end in two weeks, there are still a number of concerts left. Disney doesn’t skimp on talent either, and here are the remaining dates and performers in the “Eat to the Beat” series.
- 11/1 – Hanson (“MMMBop”)
- 11/2 – 11/3 – Blue October (“Into the Ocean”) – New this year
- 11/4 – 11/5 – Living Colour (“Cult of Personality”)
- 11/6 – 11/8 – Boyz II Men (“End of the Road”)
- 11/9 – 11/11 – Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (“Go Daddy-O”)
- 11/12 – 11/13 – Squeeze (“Tempted”) – New this year
Badges for Annual Passholder reserved seating will be handed out until they are gone or up until an hour before the concert. There will be three concerts each day at the America Gardens Theater, and they will take place at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 8 p.m.
Guests are being advised to still arrive at least 15 minutes before the concert starts.
The 2017 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival has been a great one, and there is still time to enjoy it if you can get to Walt Disney World in the next two weeks. There is a lot of different food from around the world to enjoy, and the “Eat to the Beat” concerts make each evening even better. If you’re an Annual Passholder, don’t forget to grab your special badge for reserved seating to make it that much sweeter.
