    When does Disney typically account the dates and lineup for the Eat to the Beat concert series? I'm planning a trip for Sept/Oct 2023 and am debating whether or not I should wait to see the artist lineup or take my chances and book now in advance.

    Hi, Catherine, and welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so glad that you came to us with this question about one of my favorite Walt Disney World Resort events, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.  I love sampling all of the unique tastes from around the world at the global marketplaces, and the Eat to the Beat Concert Series is always a highlight of this festival.  Live music is the perfect accompaniment to sipping and savoring your way around World Showcase.

    In previous years, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival has run from mid or late summer through mid-November, and the Eat to the Beat Concert Series shows have been held on most nights throughout the festival.  We don't know exactly when this year's festival dates and concert series lineup will be announced, but in the past, information on the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival has been released in late spring or early summer.  I would recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news and announcements.  

    Catherine, I would advise you to go ahead and book your Walt Disney World Resort vacation now so that you have the best availability for theme park reservations and the best selection of Disney Resorts Collection Hotels.  Then when the acts are announced for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, you can always see if it would be possible to modify your trip dates to catch your favorite artist's show.  Honestly, all of the Eat to the Beat acts are great, and I think you'll have a fabulous time no matter which shows you end up seeing.

    Once the concert lineup is announced, you might want to consider booking an Eat to the Beat Dining Package.  With your dining package purchase, you'll get to enjoy a delicious meal at one of EPCOT's many amazing restaurants, as well as a guaranteed seat at an Eat to the Beat concert.  Instead of waiting in a long standby line for the show, you can spend more time taking in all that EPCOT has to offer.
