Found this on Disney's site:

Eat to the Beat concert series schedule:
9/25–9/27 — Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
9/28–9/29 — Richard Marx (NEW!)
9/30–10/3 — Starship starring Mickey Thomas
10/4–10/6 — En Vogue
10/7–10/8 — Better Than Ezra (NEW!)
10/9–10/11 — Sister Hazel
10/12–10/13 — Kool & The Gang
10/14–10/16 — Spyro Gyra
10/17–10/18 — Jon Secada
10/19–10/20 — Sister Sledge
10/21–10/22 — Vanessa Carlton (NEW!)
10/23–10/25 — Taylor Dayne
10/26–10/28 — Boyz II Men

11/1–11/2 — Night Ranger
11/3–11/5 — Billy Ocean (NEW!)
11/6–11/8 — Los Lobos

I'll be there to see the first 3. I think the first 2 should be pretty good. I don't really care to see Starship but would love to be there to see Better Than Ezra. Unfortunately my husband has business that can't be postponed.

This will be our first time @ the Food & Wine Fest... are the concerts seperately ticketed events? Or open to whoever happens by?

Thanks for any info!

The concerts are included with Epcot admission, although some can be very crowded and it may be difficult to get into America Gardens Theater.

You also do not need to actually get into the theater to hear the concert - only if you want to sit down. You can watch from standing room outside the theater. You can also hear the concert perfectly well if you are standing anywhere in the American pavilion, like right next to the Sam Adams beer stand

Go without him.

In all seriousness, the second I heard about BTE at F&W, I was on the phone with Member Services booking my BCV!! I'm so excited.

I agree!

But I will also say depending on your musical taste that having a Sam Adams or other adult beverage is the only way to endure some of these performances until you're out of earshot.

Thanks for starting this thread. This will be my first year attending (after many years of wanting to go!) and this will be a great way for me to plan our girls only trip

My wife pointed out to me a few weeks ago that the F&WF will be going on when we are down there the last week of October. I always thought that F&WF ended in early to mid-October, so this has been a nice surprise. I was already excited about MNSSHP, but this is the cherry on top.

We start our week off with MNSSHP and will end our stay with John Waite and F&WF. It's going to kill me having to wait over 4 months before we get there. I guess I will live vicariously through others via the DISboards until then.
