5 Pro Tips for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series

Great tips for the Eat to the Beat Concert at Disney's Epcot

1 – Get there Early

Popular bands tend to have LONG lines waiting to grab the best seats between each show.

The outdoor theater seats roughly 1,000 people on benches. This number sounds like a lot, but the area quickly fills up.

2 – Bring Sun Protective Gear

Accessories such as a hat, sunglasses, umbrella, and sunscreen are great to have in case you have to wait a while in line to be seated.

3 – Don’t Worry if You Don’t Get in the Theater

You can still view it and hear the artists from the American Pavilion pathway or courtyard.

4 – Remember that Queue Lines form on Both Sides of the Theatre

Be sure to check that the line is not specified for the Eat to the Beat Dining Package.

5 – Don’t Feel Bad if You’re Not Able to Go to the First Show

Most bands tend to change up the song lineup throughout the evening.

I’ve found the second and third shows tend to be the best. The band is usually warmed up and there’s a better energy from both the crowd and the artists.
