Several preliminary musicians have been announced to perform for Eat to the Beat, a fan-favorite live concert series featured nightly at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival each fall.
2023 Eat to the Beat Lineup
Eat to the Beat is a way for guests to enjoy a live concert to “spice up” their day of dining around the World Showcase at EPCOT in Walt Disney World. On the scheduled event nights, shows perform at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. at the America Gardens Theatre.
According to WDW Entertainment’s Steve Soares, a few scheduled musicians have been released for the Eat to the Beat concert series:
- Tiffany: July 30-31
- Haley Reinhart: August 11-12
- Taylor Dayne: October 20-21
Taylor Dayne and Tiffany both performed during last year’s Eat to the Beat as well. Other musicians from 2022 included Hanson, Boyz II Men, 98°, and .38 Special. Check out last year’s full concert lineup here.
How to Score a Seat for Eat to the Beat
Eat to the Beat will begin alongside the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival in July and will run through mid-November. Disney will be offering both internationally recognized band performances as well as musical stylings from local artists. Local artists typically perform Tuesdays-Thursdays, and internationally recognized performers will be on stage Fridays-Mondays.
Admission to the concert is included with park entry; however, if you’d like to be sure of a seat for the show, there is a dining package available for purchase Fridays-Mondays. It pairs a table-service meal with a guaranteed seat for one of the concert’s three showings for the evening.
Walt Disney World guests who purchase an Eat to the Beat dining package receive special concert badges at the restaurant after their meal. The badge specifies the date and show time they have reserved.
Guests then present these badges to enter America Gardens Theatre in a separate queue. They are seated on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating is guaranteed for these guests.
In 2022, each dining package included:
- An appetizer, entrée, and dessert or one full buffet (where applicable), along with a non-alcoholic beverage
- One guaranteed seat per person to one concert performance on the same day; the concert time was assigned at the time of booking
In 2022, the restaurants included in the dining package options were Biergarten Restaurant in Germany Pavilion, Coral Reef Restaurant at The Living Seas, Garden Grill Restaurant at The Land Pavilion, Le Cellier Steakhouse at Canada Pavilion, Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue in the American Adventure Pavilion, and Spice Road Table in Morocco Pavilion.
