    During garden rock concert series at Epcot is it first come or do you have to line up to enter ? I don’t wanna be sitting in there and be told to get up and line up. Can you explain because it’s first time attending and only 1 day for favorite band ever!

    Hello Alison, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The Garden Rocks Concert Series is one of my FAVORITE features of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, and the amazing lineup for the 2019 Series will definitely not disappoint.

    If you only have one day to see your favorite band, I would strongly recommend booking one of the Garden Rocks Dining Packages. Not only will you indulge in mouthwatering fare from one of 15 featured restaurants at Epcot, but you’ll also have GUARANTEED seating (in an area close to the stage) at one of three concert performances that day! Choose breakfast, lunch or dinner--just make sure your restaurant reservation is at least 2.5 hours before the performance you want to attend.

    If you can’t find a Garden Rocks Dining Package to suit your needs, don’t worry: there is standby seating available! I would recommend arriving at least an hour before showtime and asking a Cast Member to direct you to the standby queue to the right of the American Gardens Theatre in the American Adventure Pavilion. Since artists perform three shows per night, try to make the first one so you can potentially catch another in case seats aren’t available for that show.

    Remember that valid Epcot admission is required and is not included in the Dining Package price. Events, entertainment and appearances are also subject to change without notice. 

    Rock on and enjoy the show!
