  • I would ABSOLUTELY love to see Nine Days play here.. This is …. the Story of a Girl!

  • Awwwww my favorite act besides Mickey Thomas Starship is missing. PLEASE bring Wilson Phillips back. They were awesome and had Standing Room only crowds!

  • Hey Charles, do we have any updates on an Eat to the Beat dining package? The last update I saw was early July.

  • It’s sad Wang Chung isn’t on that list. They were phenomenal last year! So good I scrolled through the 2017 lineup specifically looking for them as soon as the page loaded, but alas, no fun tonight.

    Hopefully they’re at least a contingency in case one of the other acts can’t make it (unless by some miracle all 32 bands go on as scheduled). I like them better than several others in the lineup, but everyone’s got their tastes.

  • When will we be able to make reservations for the specialty dining, along with celebrity chef dates?

  • Going to try to convince my husband to let us go to WDW from California specifically to see Squeeze. This is a game changer for sure. Difford & Tillbrook are one of the best songwriting pairs in all of music.

  • Changing our plans so we can see Sister Hazel!!!

  • Great to see the list! I suspect a typo in the ending STARSHIP date (should be 9/10, not 9/20, 2-3 day run like most of the others?).

  • SOOOOO Excited for Squeeze!!! Hoping they sound amazing still. Also looking forward to Hooters, Postmodern Jukebox (with Haley Rinehart), David Cook, and Everclear too!!

  • Hooray, PWT’s are back! And SQUEEZE!!!!!!! Can’t wait!
