If you wanted reserved seating at the Eat to the Beat concerts during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, you could purchase an “Eat to the Beat Concert Series Dining Package” which gave you the choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner at a select Epcot table service restaurant and guaranteed seating at one of three evening concerts the same day.
Because of the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic the Eat to the Beat music concerts were cancelled for 2020 and 2021
The rest of the page relates to the dining package in 2019
If you make a lunchtime reservation then you get reserved seating at the first show whereas dinner reservations give you reserved seating for either the second or third shows (concert times vary by day, 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).
