The Eat to the Beat Concert Series returns to America Gardens Theater with 32 acts and nine new acts including 98 Degrees, MercyMe, Vertical Horizon, Glass Tiger, Sheila E. and Jim Belushi & the Sacred Hearts.
Disney Du Jour Dance Party
An all-new Disney Du Jour Dance Party will be taking place at the Fountain View Stage in Future World on Friday and Saturday evenings throughout the Festival. The dance party will feature great music, a special concert appearance from a Radio Disney artist, and interactive dances and activities for kids of all ages. Every weekend will includes a different pairing of Disney characters including Remy and Emile from Disney•Pixar’s “Ratatouille,” Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps from “Zootopia,” Lilo and Stitch or classic favorites such as Chip ‘n Dale or Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar!
The opening weekend for the Disney Du Jour Dance Party will feature Hollywood Records’ recording artist, IRL.
