    Can you tell me about the entertainment in Epcot's Germany Pavillion, specifically Margret Almer and the Bavarian Band? Do you know if the band will be performing in December of 2016? Thank you.

    Guten Abend, Joanne! It's time to brush off your dirndl and lederhosen for a wonderful afternoon of singing and dancing! Margaret Almer & the Bavarian Band began regaling Epcot World Showcase Guests late last month. The shows that I have seen are very fun, full of energy, and bring even more authentic atmosphere to the German World Showcase Pavilion. Margaret Almer is known as the "Yodel Queen" and that title is rightly deserved. I think your family will greatly enjoy this show.

    It has not been announced how long Margaret Almer & the Bavarian Band will be performing, but I do hope you are able to experience their show. Currently, they can be found at the new performance stage in the German Pavilion each day (except Tuesday and Wednesday) at 1:05, 2:10, 3:10, 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. Be sure to grab a Times Guide as you enter Epcot for an updated list of performances.

    Since you mentioned you will be visiting Epcot during December, I want to mention the Holidays Around the World extravaganza that will be going on during that month. Be sure to keep up with the page I linked and the Disney Parks Blog as more plans are announced for this holiday tradition. We love to visit each country's World Showcase Pavilion to hear more of how they celebrate the holidays. There is a very special guest featured at the one presented in Germany, so you will not want to miss it!

    Okay, Joanne, we need to brush up on your German before your day at Epcot. All together, let's practice this with a good count off ... eins, zwei, drei! Zicke zacke, zicke zacke, hoi hoi hoi!

    Prost to you and yours, Joanne!
