The Dining Packages for the Candlelight Processional at EPCOT during December’s Festival of the Holidays were gone in the blink of an eye, so if you were hoping to snag a Dining Package with guaranteed seating for the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series at this year’s EPCOT International Festival of the Arts , you’d better hurry.
The Festival of the Arts begins January 14, 2022, and runs through February 21. A dozen amazing Broadway performers will be in town to delight audiences, and guests who want to guarantee themselves a seat can book a dining reservation at one of four different EPCOT venues. Each Dining Package includes an appetizer, entrée and dessert, or one full buffet, along with a non-alcoholic beverage at either the Coral Reef, Biergarten, Rose & Crown, or Garden Grill.
Concerts take place at the America Gardens Theatre at 5:30 PM, 6:45 PM and 8:00 PM from January 14 to February 21, 2022. Guests who book a dining package are given a ticket for a guaranteed seat at one of that evening’s shows, while guests who have not reserved a DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series Dining Package “will be seated at the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating is based on availability due to limited capacity.” Dining Package guests enter the Theatre in a separate queue, and will be seated on a first-come, first served basis, though their seat is guaranteed. Stand-by guests without a Dining Package reservation will enter through a different queue.
