Off Kilter, Mo’ Rockin’, Fife & Drum Corps., and World Showcase Players Leaving Epcot, New Acts Coming

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Rumblings began a few days ago that some long running entertainment acts at Epcot might be leaving next month. Today, Disney confirmed that Off Kilter in Canada, Mo’ Rockin’ in Morocco, the Fife & Drum Corps. in American Adventure, and the World Showcase Players are all leaving Epcot in September. All of the groups are scheduled to have their very last performances on September 27th, with the World Showcase Players ending on the 25th.

Usually a budget move, this time the changes seem to be a conscious effort to bring more culturally relevant and new entertainment to the park. In the coming months, a celtic folk music ensemble in the United Kingdom, a lumberjack-inspired show in Canada, flag waving performers in Italy, and a Berber music and dance troupe in Morocco will be added to replace these acts.

As great as updating the entertainment may be, many of the departing acts have been guest favorites for many years, and are sure to be missed.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price.

  • Cause when I think culturally relevant and Canada, I think lumberjacks! I guess they’ll be chugging maple syrup. And saying “eh” a lot. And giving away health care.

  • Well no one has a gig forever at Disney. I think this is a good move but I will miss the Off Kilter group :-)

  • Maybe Off Kilter will get a gig at Downtown Disney. Didn’t Nova Era leave EPCOT and start performing Downtown?

  • Sad, very, very sad. I have been a huge Off Kilter fan for so many years and when we get to EPCOT they are the first we visit. It will not be the same – its just sad ………….I am happy though I will get to see them perform one more time next week. I wish all of them the very best, and hope they continue to make music either solo or as a band!! I will miss them !!

  • There is a Save Off Kilter group now on Facebook. I recommend voicing your opinion LOUDLY about saving the main reason soooooo many of us go to Epcot more days than any other park when we’re there … OFF KILTER!

    • You pay hundreds of dollars to enter a theme park to see a live band? Sounds like a special kind of stupid.

      • You pay hundreds of dollars to enter a theme park and don’t try to see every single thing there is to see? Sounds like a special kind of stupid.
