In addition to the opportunity to try out food from different countries, one of the highlights of the annual Epcot Food & Wine Festival is the Eat to the Beat concert series.
Each night, guests at Epcot can enjoy live music at the America Gardens Theater from acts that had hits in the last three decades, mostly concentrating on the 80s and 90s.
