Garden Rocks – What Music Has to Do with the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

The flowers, the garden tips, the food, the music, and more! This month’s Blogorail Red Loop is featuring the magic you can expect at the 2017 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival.


Garden Rocks - What Music Has to Do with the Epcot International Flower & Garden FestivalIt’s the most wonderful time of the year. Not Christmas. It’s time for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival! That is probably my favorite time of year to visit Epcot. The flowers add so much color to the already amazing park, I can sample wonderful fresh food at the kiosks, the topiaries are always spectacular, and there are even free concerts. Don’t expect classical, easy listening music with tea and crumpets with these flowers, though, because this “Garden Rocks!”

Garden Rocks - What Music Has to Do with the Epcot International Flower & Garden FestivalEach Friday through Monday of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, different acts perform at the America Gardens Theatre. Showtimes are 5:30pm, 6:45pm, and 8:00pm and it’s included in your park ticket. To ensure a seat, a dining package can be purchased (advance reservations needed). Prices vary based on the restaurant and there are 15 restaurants to choose from including: Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Biergarten Restaurant, Coral Reef Restaurant, The Garden Grill Restaurant, Nine Dragons Restaurant, Restaurant Marrakesh, Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room, San Angel Inn Restaurante, Spice Road Table, Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria, Tutto Italia Ristorante, Chefs de France, Tokyo Dining, Teppan Edo, and La Hacienda de San Angel. If you’re not worried about a seat, you can do like I did. Last year, I just showed up for Electric Light Orchestra about 20 – 30 minutes before the show and got a decent seat about 2/3 back from the stage. I’ve also just enjoyed the music while eating a turkey leg in the American Adventure Pavilion. I couldn’t see, but I could hear the music just fine.

This year’s lineup looks sensational as always. Acts currently scheduled (subject to change) are:

March 3 & 4 Jon Secada
March 5 & 6 Dennis DeYoung featuring the music of Styx
March 10 – 13 The Pointer Sisters
March 17 & 18 Simple Plan
March 19 & 20 Plain White T’s
