    I'm so glad that Disney supports people of faith and I like the boldness of your faith in your profile. Do you know if Disney will have any events, like Christian concerts, in the coming year?

    Hello Janet!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for trusting me with this question! My faith is a huge part of me and has helped me be a better human to those around me! I am excited that you are considering visiting Walt Disney World and I want to help!

    Walt Disney World used to have a "Night of Joy" event in the Parks that was a concert featuring various major Christian artists. They no longer have one major Christian concert event but many little ones! I can now see many very popular Christian artists appear during the Concert series attributed to the Festivals occurring at EPCOT. During the Springtime, EPCOT has its International Flower and Garden Festival with a Garden Rocks Concert Series. In 2022, they had Cece Winans and Tobymac performing. They do small concert sets that last about 30 minutes and they perform a few times a day. This year they have not yet announced who will be performing but they have been great at including a variety of musicians and I have always seen at least two Christian artists on the roster. After this Festival we see the International Food & Wine Festival which has its Eat to the Beat Concert Series. Last year they had Jeremy Camp and the Newsboys perform!

    Admission to these concerts is included with your EPCOT park ticket and if you want a seat make sure to get there early! While enjoying the rides, attractions, and many exciting food kiosks at the Festivals you can take a break and enjoy the best hits of your favorite artists! If you don't want to miss out on the seating as it is general admission, I would recommend purchasing a Dining Package which is when you pre-arrange for a meal at a nearby restaurant and secure a guaranteed seat in an excellent viewing area for the show. Make sure to secure this Dining Reservation early as it is a hot ticket. To get an idea about what it could cost and what options you may have for this Dining Package head to the International Flower and Garden- Broadway Concert Series Dining Package page.

    Another idea is to consider attending the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays – Candlelight Processional. It is a moving show that tells the Biblical narrative of Christ's birth in Bethlehem. There is a huge choir, musical instruments, and many times a celebrity narrator. Fellow planDisney panelist Amy A. told me that no matter what you believe you will enjoy this show and she said that the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah was beautiful.

    As an additional idea, head to The American Adventure Pavilion rotunda and listen to the Voices of Liberty who sing inspiring and beautiful music that just echoes throughout the room. It is not to be missed!

    I hope you can make time to visit and let me know if you have any more questions.
