Yesterday we shared the details about which performers will create a little sizzle on the America Gardens Theatre stage for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series during the 2019 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, along with a TON of new info about Special Events, Seminars and Demonstrations, family fun, and more for the Festival, including the popular Eat to the Beat Dining Packages. (See it all here!)
Today, we want to talk a little more about this year’s Eat to the Beat Dining Packages, so you can know your options for 2019.
As a reminder, Eat to the Beat Dining Packages are a great way to guarantee yourself a seat to see your favorite performers — and you get a filling, fun meal before the show, too! The Dining Package entitles a guest to breakfast, lunch, or dinner at one of 15 Epcot table service restaurants and includes same-day reserved seating for the show!
Eat to the Beat showtimes are a little different for 2019, with Sunday — Thursday shows at 5:30 PM, 6:45 PM, and 8:00 PM and Friday — Saturday shows at 6:30 PM, 7:45 PM, and 9:00 PM. Guests who book a Dining Package for breakfast or lunch will have the chance to select from all three showtimes that day, while guests who book a dinner dining package will have a choice of up to two (depending upon restaurant dinner meal period start time).
Booking for Eat to the Beat Dining Packages will be open on MAY 15, 2019. You can make reservations online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3378.
Guests who participate with the Dining Package for Eat to the Beat are asked to arrive at the America Gardens Theatre 15 minutes before showtime. Reserved seating is in the second section in the middle of the theater, and it is uncovered. Accessible seating is available; make a note of it when you make your reservation.
The Dining Package includes, for breakfast, one buffet or family-style dining (where applicable) and, for lunch and dinner, choice of an appetizer, entree, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverage OR one full buffet. Guests may use the Disney Dining Plan to pay for their Dining Packages. Dining Packages require two table service credits. Of-age guests who use the Disney Dining Plan will be able to select an alcoholic beverage in place of the non-alcoholic beverage. Restaurants include Garden Grill, Coral Reef, Spice Road Table, Teppan Edo, and eleven more!
Eat to the Beat concerts are free with Epcot admission on most days of the Food & Wine Festival, with seating available on a first come, first served basis. It is possible to see the show and enjoy the music without being in the Theatre, so if blocking out a chunk of time for the full show isn’t possible for your schedule, you can still stop by in front of The American Adventure pavilion to listen to some tunes in passing.
