Would love to see Edwin McCain! “I’ll Be” was our wedding song almost 14 years ago. But alas, we arrive one day too late on the 12th :(


Marsha on May 16th, 2013 at 6:11 pm

I would love to see ANY of these acts! What a great line up. Sadly, I can’t afford air fare this year. :-( boo


Larry on May 16th, 2013 at 6:34 pm

Saw the Go-Gos last year at the Hollywood Bowl. Great concert. Just returned from my WDW yearly visit a couple weeks ago. Oh well. Those who can go enjoy! Looks like a great line up!


Angie on May 16th, 2013 at 8:12 pm

Awesome!!!!!!!!! Now, I have to rearrange so we can go and see the best act to ever come to Disney!

Edwin McCain!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Disney!


Shae from NY on May 16th, 2013 at 8:44 pm

So excited Boyz II Men will be there even if it’s our last day in the parks. Our 10th anniversary trip is going to be AWESOME!!!!


Jennie from CA on May 16th, 2013 at 9:59 pm

After two tris to WDW this year I was planning on staying home until Dopey, but the Go Gos might have me packing my Disney luggage one more time in 2013.


Kristin on May 16th, 2013 at 11:25 pm

It’s a 90’s flashback! LOVE the lineup!!


Tanya from NJ on May 17th, 2013 at 8:58 am

I wish I was going…Manhattan Transfer, The Pointer Sisters, Boyz II Men, Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray and Spin Doctors are my faves from out of the this group. Enjoy to all who are going to be there!!!


Lorraine on May 17th, 2013 at 11:58 am

So happy Sister Hazel has signed on for another year!! I’m a huge Disney fan and HazelNut! So great to have my two favorite things combined!


Staci from FL on May 17th, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Edwin McCain is an awesome addition!! But, where is Howard Jones?


Chris from CA on May 17th, 2013 at 3:44 pm

WOW!! What a great line up. I have played shows with a couple of the groups listed and know at least 1 band member from about 5 others. I wish I could be out there to see all of it.


Brittney on May 17th, 2013 at 3:48 pm

Is it so crazy that I would LOVE to see Boyz II Men


Tina from NH on May 17th, 2013 at 9:43 pm

Night Ranger & Survivor while I’m there!! :-) A little bummed that Air Supply is early this year. I’d love to see Air Supply & Dennis DeYoung the same week next year!


Sarah on May 17th, 2013 at 10:03 pm

Sugar Ray is amazing! Saw them last year and they put on a fantastic show. Really hoping I can go down this year and check them out again.


Shelley on May 21st, 2013 at 11:06 am

WOW! SO many groups, so little time! Going to try to see as many as possible.


Jean on May 21st, 2013 at 9:17 pm

Is there a line up of bands for the Amercan Experience in the World Showcase in June?


colleen on May 24th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

I will definitely be there to see HANSON! I have seen them at Epcot for the last 3 years ~ they put on an amazing show!!!


Christina from PA on May 28th, 2013 at 2:08 pm

Very excited to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy closing Food and Wine again!


Jennifer on May 30th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

I would soooo love to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. They are a class act. I saw them in the mid 90’s in West Palm Beach and have been a great fan ever since. They are talent. I love turning people on to them.


Michael on June 13th, 2013 at 12:05 pm

Gonna miss Billy Ocean, always a great treat to have him here.


Karolyn on June 19th, 2013 at 2:35 pm

What a great lineup this year. Would LOVE to see the Go Go’s, Wilson Phillips,Air Supply or Edwin McCain…unfortunately we won’t be there yet. I am really excited to see Boys II Men though…I hope we can get there in time…their last night is the night we arrive :)


janine on July 5th, 2013 at 9:13 am

Smash mouth is going to be there during our trip! Have to check this out, what time does the concert usually


Preston on July 11th, 2013 at 9:38 pm

We are there from the 23-30 and normally there a week later. So we will see Starship but will miss Manhattan Transfer the Go Go’s and others. Last time we were there for food and wine we saw The Beach Boys and it was a great show. Actually saw them twice.


Debra from FL on July 15th, 2013 at 10:38 am

Have show times been determined yet? I don’t see them on the WDW website or here. I’m helping some out-of-town friends decide what to do when they’re here and those times would be helpful!!! Thanks!


Marx on July 16th, 2013 at 1:39 pm

I’ll be there for The Pointer Sisters and Night Ranger and a big belly!


Joseph on July 22nd, 2013 at 5:08 pm

OMG!! Wilson Phillips!!! A dream come true!!! Gonna catch the Go-Go’s too! Saw Survivor and Dennis DeYoung last year – both were awesome. Nice line-up! Thanks Mickey! 😉 Joe


Amy from IL on July 23rd, 2013 at 8:57 pm

I flew down 2 years ago JUST to see them! They were the only reason I flew in and left after seeing them both days of performances!! We just moved to FL and SO excited to see them again!!!


Rob on July 24th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

I have seen Boyz II Men, Starship and Smash Mouth at Eat to the Beat….I will definately be there sometime between Oct 28 and 30 for Smash Mouth, they are fun and put on a great show.


Diane from MD on August 1st, 2013 at 5:35 pm

BBVD for sure on Saturday night. Grandson is learning to play the trumpet and he will enjoy them along with us ‘older’ mousekateers!


James on August 10th, 2013 at 11:15 am

Can’t wait to see the Go-Go’s!! Does anyone know the show times?? Thanks!!


James on August 14th, 2013 at 3:18 pm

I have always loved the one of a kind sound of Christopher Cross. I would LOVE to see him.


Lisa on September 27th, 2013 at 9:09 am

SISTER HAZEL!!!!! Traveling with family who picked our travel dates, who knew that they would pick the weekend that Sister Hazel would be there! LOVE them!!! Other’s might say they are going to Epcot and saw Sister Hazel, I’m going to Epcot to see SISTER HAZEL.


Cecilia on October 8th, 2013 at 10:35 pm
