This is just the first performer announcement for the 2022 Eat to the Beat Concert Series, as you’ll notice a number of dates omitted from the list above as the rest of the schedule is to be determined. The lineup so far though, includes many returning festival favorites like Air Supply, Hanson, Boyz II Men, Tiffany, and Baha Men, just to name a few.
Also returning for this year’s events is the Eat to the Beat dining package, which allows Guests to dine at select EPCOT restaurants at either buffets or with pre-fixe menus and includes earlier access to the seating area at the America Gardens Theatre for the performance.
All concerts take place in the America Gardens Theatre at the American Adventure pavilion in World Showcase, and shows are included with theme park admission (with the exception of dining packages which come at an added cost.)
Previously, Disney announced that this year’s festival will include new and returning Global Marketplaces around the park for Guests to sample dishes and drinks at the event, along with exclusive merchandise, photo ops, and more.
