Garden Rocks schedule 2019

Anyone that knows me, knows that the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is one of my favorite times of year to go to Walt Disney World. One of the benefits of going during this time is the Garden Rocks concert series. This is a set of mini-concerts that take place within the Epcot World Showcase. The Bands come from a variety of different music and can be some of the Bands you grew up with. Disney has released their Garden Rocks schedule 2019! There are quite a few well-known bands this coming year including Lonestar, Sister Hazel, Simple Plan, John Fiedler from the Eagles along with many more.

The Garden Festival

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival takes place in Epcot from March 6th to June 3rd, 2019. The Garden Rocks schedule 2019 starts a few days later on March 9th. Most years the festival takes place right around the same time frame. There’s a lot to see and do during this time including outdoor kitchens and food tasting along with seeing all of the topiaries around the park. These concerts are free with your Disney park ticket. Some of that bands can pull a pretty big crowd so they have three showings at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8 pm.

Even if you can’t find a seat you’ll be able to enjoy the concert standing in the back or even walking by. If you are concerned with not finding a seat, Disney has a Garden Rocks Dining Plan; which allows you to make reservations at a nearby restaurant and have reserved seating for the concert.

When to Go?

As you can see by the Garden Rocks schedule 2019, there are quite a variety of musical artists over the course of a month-and-a-half. Some are more well-known than others. But overall there’s something for everyone. If you were down there around this time, I recommend making an effort to catch one at the concert. If you’re choosing when to go, this is a great opportunity! In the past, we were lucky enough to see the Gin Blossoms perform during the Garden Rock concerts.
