The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts runs January 14-February 21, 2022, and this year’s festival is extra special as it marks the return of the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series!
When Walt Disney World reopened following its closure early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, EPCOT’s annual festivals returned without some of their most notable events, including live performances by popular bands and Broadway performers. In past events since the park’s 2020 reopening, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival and the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, along with the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts have hosted performers from World Showcase rather than outside bands and artists.
If you visited EPCOT during these festivals, you may have caught performers like Mariachi Cobre from the Mexico pavilion or the Voices of Liberty from the American Adventure pavilion performing live on the America Gardens Theatre stage. With this year’s Festival of the Arts, however, the full lineup of Broadway stars will be back, and with the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series comes the return of dining packages to help ensure seating for each set.
Here are the details for booking dining packages at this year’s festival:
- Four restaurants are included in this year’s dining packages, each offering your choice of lunch or dinner (based on availability). Choose from Biergarten ($57 for adults and $32 for children), Rose & Crown Dining Room ($58 for adults and $22 for children), Coral Reef Restaurant ($69 for adults and $22 for children), or Garden Grill Restaurant ($66 for adults and $43 for children). The prices listed exclude tax and gratuity.
- Each dining experience includes either one full buffet or family-style offering, or one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert per person with non-alcoholic beverages included.
- Each member of your party dining at a participating restaurant as part of the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series dining package will receive priority seating badges for one of the day’s performances while finishing their meals.
While it is possible to find walk-up availability for dining packages at EPCOT, we strongly recommend booking in advance. Like other Walt Disney World table service reservations, dining packages require a credit card guarantee, and valid theme park admission and reservations must be used to enter the park.
If you do not book a dining package for the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series, seating will be available on a first-come, first served basis. Booking a dining package can free up your time visiting EPCOT if you are planning on catching one of the performances as your best chance at a seat without the package is to arrive early and spend the time waiting near the front of the line (when you could spend this time having lunch or dinner instead!)
In addition to the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series, the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts features outdoor kitchens, artist meet and greets, an interactive mural project, special event merchandise, including the new Figment popcorn bucket, and more.
