After last year’s hiatus, Disney on Broadway is back at the Festival of the Arts! I had the opportunity to watch two different duos perform their Broadway hits, and this activity is a must-do. See why it’s the perfect entertainment at Epcot right now.

Festival of the Arts celebrates all things artful! The sights, sounds, and tastes are truly magnificent and make it my favorite festival to attend. Disney on Broadway showcases the performing and musical arts with shows each night of the festival.

Every night at the American Gardens Theater, two Broadway stars take the stage to perform hit songs from Disney Broadway productions. Performances take place at 5:30 pm, 6:45 pm, and 8:00 pm and last approximately 30 minutes.

Dining Packages

If you want to make an entire experience out of it, dining packages are available for this event. Like other festival performances, this package guarantees seating for your party. Similar to the Candlelight Processional dining packages, you can dine at one of four restaurants: Coral Reef, Garden Grill, Biergarten, or Rose & Crown.

You will be given a sticker for each member of your party and will enter the reserved seating line. Both times I watched the show there was plenty of seating still available. One time I even showed up 10 minutes late! Because of this, I recommend not reserving the dining package since you likely will not have a sold out show.

Performers

My Experiences

I enjoyed Disney on Broadway on two nights: January 29 and January 31. The first night I saw Kara Lindsay and Dan DeLuca, both from Newsies. On the second night, I saw Heidi Blickenstaff and Robert Creighton.

I preferred the second show simply because I knew more of the songs! I also really enjoyed the humor Heidi and Robert brought to the performance as well. Heidi blew me away with her “Poor Unfortunate Souls” song. That girl can sing!

However, both were really great! The performers brought so much energy and interacted with the crowd to get us all involved. After last year’s hiatus, I love seeing Epcot come alive again. Be sure to check this show out during your travels around the World (Showcase)!
