Hey Disney vacationers! I’m super excited to share some magical news with all my fellow Disney and Broadway fans. Guess what? Disney World just dropped the full lineup for their much-anticipated Disney on Broadway Concert Series at the 2024 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. And let me tell you, it’s going to be a showstopper!
Broadway Magic in the Heart of EPCOT
So, here’s the scoop: some of the most dazzling stars from Broadway are making their way to Walt Disney World. We’re talking about the Disney on Broadwa Concert Series, and it’s returning to EPCOT with not one, not two, but three shows daily throughout the festival. Can you believe it?
And get this – for the first time ever, two original leading ladies from our favorite frosty kingdom (yes, I’m talking about “Frozen”) will be performing together. It’s happening right on the America Gardens Theatre stage. I’m already getting chills thinking about it!
A Lineup That’s Pure Magic
For all you “Aladdin” fans out there (like me), there’s something special in store for you too. And of course, the performances will feature songs from many of our beloved Disney shows. These stars have a way of bringing those magical Disney moments to life, right before our eyes.
