However, the concert schedule will be a little different this year. Instead of concerts only happening on the weekends, concerts will now take place seven days a week! With three concerts a night, that equates to 270 concerts over the course of the festival!

Here’s where I gush about how much I love the concerts at Epcot. When I’m not photographing the gorgeous details of Animal Kingdom or the parade strolling down Main Street, you can usually find me in the front row of the American Gardens Theater at Epcot!

My favorite band to photograph there is Simple Plan, so imagine my excitement when I saw their name on the list for the third year in a row! I’ve also photographed Plain White T’s, who recently performed at the Epcot International Food & Wine Eat to the Beat Concert Series. The best part is that these concerts are included with your Epcot park admission!
