Sergio the Juggler Returns to Italy in EPCOT Ahead of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary

The entertainment news just keeps coming for World Showcase today! Earlier we learned that both the Matsuriza Taiko Drummers in the Japan pavilion and Alberta Bound, the band that performs in the Canada pavilion, will be back at EPCOT this Friday, October 1, and now we can add Sergio the Italian Juggler to that lineup!

Sergio has been a staple entertainer in EPCOT drawing Guests to his performances in the Italy pavilion for a number of years, and we are happy to see him return in time for “The Most Magical Celebration on Earth.”

His juggling act is very classic and lighthearted, yet traditional, something you would be likely to stumble upon while traversing an Old-World piazza in real-life Italy as well as in EPCOT. His juggling skills are truly impressive and his antics are entertaining for Guests of all ages.

Plan your next visit and include a stop in Italy to see Sergio’s act with the following showtimes: 12:30 pm, 1:35 pm, 2:35 pm, 3:35 pm, 4:45 pm, 5:40 pm, and 6:40 pm.

While in Italy, be sure to stop at Via Napoli for pizza or for some beautiful photo opps by the pavilion’s fountains or Venetian inspired canal area by World Showcase Lagoon.

And if you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World during the 50th anniversary celebrations, be sure to keep checking the My Disney Experience app for the latest changes to entertainment.

Italy

 

It seems new performers are being brought back almost daily at this point, so we are expecting the days and weeks following the kick-off to the anniversary this Friday to start feeling like the old, “normal” Walt Disney World that we all know and love, (and very much miss!)

We will be back with some more updates if additional entertainment offerings are announced for returns to EPCOT ahead of this weekend’s festivities.
