Each year as part of the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, there were a series of live Eat to the Beat concerts each evening.

The concerts took place at the open-air American Gardens Theatre at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Sundays to Thursdays and at 6:30 p.m., 7:45 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.


Because of the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic the Eat to the Beat music concert series were cancelled for 2020 and 2021 along with the exclusive Party for the Senses

Admission is included in the standard Epcot admission ticket.

Eat to the Beat Dining Package

Introduced in 2014, the Eat to the Beat Dining Package provided you with reserved seating for the concert plus breakfast, lunch or dinner at participated Epcot restaurants.

The package included either a full buffet or an appetiser, entrée, dessert and non-alcoholic drink. Prices vary by restaurant and whether you opt for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The Disney Dining plan could be used at most restaurants but it counted as two table service meals.

Party for the Senses

There was also a very exclusive Party for the Senses on select nights which also gave you reserved seating at the concert.
