The Disney on Broadway Concert Series is a magical part of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. It brings to life some favorite Disney tunes as heard on broadway and also in the movies. The concerts generally last around a half-hour so they are accessible for all ages. This also allows for multiple performances throughout the evening. This is a magical experience that is worth checking out, whether in person, on the live stream, or the video the DAPS MAGIC team shot earlier this year.
