The #Epcot International Festival of the Arts starts on January 13, with a salute to art in all of its forms. In addition to visual and culinary arts, the theme park is highlighting theater with live performances by Disney Broadway stars.

Broadway-caliber singing at Epcot

If you’re a theater fan who loves Disney, you’re already familiar with such Broadway hits as “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Lion King.” If you’ve seen them on stage and love the music, you’ll want to hit this new festival at Epcot to see stars from these and other beloved shows singing at the America Garden theater. Ashley Brown and Josh Strickland kick things off starting January 13 to 16, and 20 to 23, with numbers from Disney’s “Frozen,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Tarzan,” “Mary Poppins,” and “The Little Mermaid.”

Performances run throughout Disney festival

If you can’t make it to Epcot during the first two weeks of the festival, or if you’re planning multiple visits, mark your calendar to check out a show from January 27 to 30, or February 3-6.
