5 Pro Tips for the Epcot Garden Rocks Concert Series

Disney Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival with topiary Mickey Mouse #epcot

If you’re like me and have a favorite musician that you absolutely must see, then you’ll want to have a game plan for the concert series.

I’ve had frustrated nights trying to get a seat inside the American Gardens Theater to see artists like Boyz II Men or Chaka Khan.

I don’t want you to make the same mistakes as me.

Let’s go through the best tips for making the most of the Epcot Garden Rocks Concert Series.

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, an umbrella, and sunscreen are great to have in case you need 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 and hear the artists from the American Pavilion pathway or courtyard.

4 – Remember that queue lines form on both sides of the theater.

Be sure to check that the line is not specified for the Garden Rocks 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 during the Epcot Flower and Garden Concerts.

I’ve found that 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.
