    I want to see Blue October during the Garden Rocks concert series. I reserved to be in Epcot on April 8th. I don't want to pay for the dining package (too much money), can I still see the show? How does it work? Thank you.

    Hiya, Tammi! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh my goodness, doesn’t the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival – Garden Rocks Concert Series look incredible?! As soon as I saw the lineup, I just knew I would have to find a way to make it down there to enjoy at least one show! As a Long Islander, you just know I have my eye on the Billy Joel tribute band, Big Shot, performing later this month. So, keep your fingers crossed for me to make it down in time!

    I’m so glad to hear you’re planning to enjoy the fabulous EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival and hear some music from Blue October. Your trip is just around the corner, so you must be getting so excited! So, I am SO happy to share that admission to the Garden Rocks Concert Series is included in your theme park ticket price. How awesome is that? While the Garden Rocks Dining Packages are a great way to enhance your visit, it’s not required to enjoy the concert.

    Now, this concert series is super popular, so I highly recommend arriving at the America Gardens Theatre in the American Adventure Pavilion about 45-60 minutes early to have a better chance of securing a seat for the show. There will likely be a line formed by that time, and once the venue is open, you can grab your seat and relax as you wait for the concert to begin.

    Before heading over to get in line, you may want to pick up a few of the delicious culinary creations from the festival's many outdoor kitchens. These are small plates that are easy to hold, so they're the perfect thing to enjoy while you’re waiting in line. While I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, I’ve heard the Potato Pancakes with House-made Apple Sauce from Bauernmarkt: Farmer's Market in the Germany Pavillion are out of this world!

    Tammi, I’m so excited for you to get in the groove during the PCOT International Flower & Garden Festival – Garden Rocks Concert Series. I bet the Blue October show is going to be awesome! In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any other vacation planning questions!

    Rock on!
