Sounds Like Summer at WDW

It's summertime! Time for the "Sounds Like Summer Concert Series" at the America Gardens Theatre in Epcot's World Showcase  and it's also the theme of the Babe's in Disneyland blog hop today, co-hosted today by my friend Melissa at Disney on Wheels. Be sure to check them out for some cool summer posts!
Each evening from June 12th through July 30th park Guests will be rocking out to live performances of the best tribute bands "playing" tribute to timeless hit groups. there are 7 in all will put on great shows.
The summer concerts are always part of my touring plans. I try to schedule my Epcot plans with WS ADRs around the concert schedule, leaving plenty of time to queue up and find a seat for the last show. Even if we don't have an ADR at Epcot on those nights and just want to grab a counter service meal, The Liberty Inn Restaurant serves up American fare like cheeseburgers and BBQ. There are plenty of tables outside to sit and enjoy a meal or snacks while listening to the concert. There's enough room to dance too:)
If snacks are on your mind (nodding:) there a two kiosks close by, one just outside the pavilion offers delicious funnel cakes and the other more chilly snacks like these Red White and Blue icy cold drinks.
Whether we're listening from inside the theater or WS in front of the American Pavilion or even standing in the back of the theater. It's a must do summer activity.
This year's “Sounds Like Summer" Concert Series kicks off with the authentic sounds (live clip below) of tribute band, Hotel California - A Salute to the Eagles.

Their performances will include these classic sounds from the Eagles song vault:
  • Heartache Tonight
