Looking back at my first trip to Walt Disney World, I couldn’t have told you if there was even music playing in any of the parks. It was so overwhelming at times and I was far too immersed in trying to figure out where to go and what to do to appreciate all the details that Disney offers. Being able to visit as often as we do, I’m come to look forward to some of those familiar sounds and spend a good bit of time listening to Disney music when we’re not in the parks.
One place in particular that I love for the music and sounds is World Showcase in EPCOT. As you’re strolling through the countries, you can hear songs from their land. The different languages and styles are intriguing but all seem to go together as you’re moving between countries without clashing.
Another way the World Showcase music is a bit different is that a good bit of the music is live throughout the day (and night!). Seeing the different performers after grabbing a snack and drink in the countries is a great excuse to sample lots of yummy treats while taking in some world class entertainment.
Probably my most favorite time of year to visit World Showcase is during the holidays. Listening to the holiday music during their Holidays Around the World experience. Hearing some of my favorite holiday songs in different languages just gets me even more into the holiday spirit! Of course you can’t forget special holiday presentations like the Candlelight Processional. Even without sitting through the show, you’ll hear the music while walking through.
There are other special times during the year when World Showcase and EPCOT have special musical events. The Sounds Like Summer series is a great way to spend a warm summer evening. During the International Flower and Garden Festival, there’s a Flower Power Concert Series that also brings some classics acts to the park. EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival isn’t left out. They’ve got their Eat to the Beat Concert Series.
