If you have been to the Garden Rocks Concerts at EPCOT, you know the hype of seeing a live concert at Disney World. Numerous bands rock it out at the American Gardens Theater in front of the American Adventure Pavilion. The Garden Rocks Concerts have had some amazing performers like Daughtry, War, The Plain White T’s, Kool & The Gang, the list goes on. News just broke that Magic Kingdom is getting their own Concert Series in 2023 with even more amazing performers (and free drinks, so be sure to read on)!
Disney will be debuting “Castle Concerts” starting in 2023. These concerts, as suggested in the name, will take place in front of Cinderella Castle. The artists will perform on the stage in front of the castle and concertgoers will be able to stand anywhere on Main Street USA and around the hub to watch the concert.
Here are specific details on the Castle Concert event. The Castle Concerts will take place after park hours. This will be a special ticketed event similar to Disney’s After Hours event. The cost for the Castle Concerts will be $145 per guest. Guests who purchase a ticket for the event will be allowed to enter the park any time after 5 PM. The park will close at 9 PM to all guests and the concerts will start at 10 PM. When you purchase a ticket for this special event, you must choose the date you are going. Some dates will likely sell out faster than others based on who is performing.
During the event, Main Street USA and the hub around the castle are the only areas that will be open. The rest of the lands in the park will be closed off to all guests. The concerts will all be 90-120 minutes long. They will be full of energy with lights, smoke, castle projections, and even fireworks in the background! This is all great, but we saved the best part for last.
Disney will have free food and drinks during the event. The food will be snacks like popcorn, Mickey Ice Cream bars, Mickey Pretzels, and Hot Dogs and Corndogs (from Casey’s Corner). The drinks will be soda and Alcohol. You heard us right, Disney will have free alcohol for guests attending the event! There are very few spots you can get alcohol at the Magic Kingdom, so it’s amazing Disney will offer it at this event, especially with it being free! We wonder if the drinking age on Disney property will be lowered to 18 by the time the concerts start.
You may be wondering who is actually performing at the Castle Concerts. You also may be thinking who cares, Disney has free alcohol at the event! The full lineup hasn’t been announced, but here are some artists we know will be performing: Snoop Dogg, BTS, Post Malone, Drake, Morgan Wallen, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, The Weekend, Eminem, Olivia Roderigo, Florida Georgia Line, and Travis Scott.
This is quite a spectacular line up of artists and covers a variety of genres. This is some incredible Disney news, especially for those who are music fans. We expect these concerts to be extremely popular and sell out fast! We will keep you updated when tickets go on sale so you don’t miss out. Which artist are you most excited for?
