    I hope to be there to hear “We built this City on rock and roll” in person. :)

    We should have a sticky thread for the Flower and Garden Festival.

    Thanks for starting this! We're headed to the F&G Festival on March 13. Had a blast this year, can't wait to do it again!

    My parents (and I!) are excited about Blood, Sweat, & Tears. I'll have to play their songs for the kids so they can recognize them.

    I'm excited to be seeing them too! You do know that some of the members of the band probably weren't yet alive when the band did "Spinning Wheel". DS has a friend who's a member of the band-he's 34 yo. I'm still looking forward to seeing them though.

    I love F&G. DH and I usually go to F&G, F&W and for Christmas. But F&G is my favorite. I made DH go once just to see the Guess Who.

    Yeah, that's the problem with some of the older bands. Original members leave/die etc. But the music lives on and that makes me happy!

    Super excited to see Rick Springfield will be there when we're there - I'm a huge General Hospital fan! Never been to Epcot during the F&G. Do these concerts get as crowded as the Eat to the Beat during F&W?

    That's what I was wondering! Glad there's a sticky! I booked one last year - ended up canceling it - but wish I remember when I booked it!

    We're there for Rick Springfield too! I think he's new but not sure! I've never been to Eat to the Beat, but my understanding is it varies a bit depending on the popularity of the artist. Proximity to Easter might factor in too, I would think. Last year I saw ELO and we waited maybe 30 minutes to make sure we got a seat and were able to get a fairly good seat.

    Me again! I did a quick search of the Disney Blog since as I mentioned, I booked one last year. According to the blog, the F&G Garden Rocks dining packages were announced February 3rd, 2017. Not sure if the timing will be the same, but FWIW...

    We always seem to hit F&G around the same time as STARSHIP, the atmosphere is brilliant. We'll miss them this year however I am looking forward to Lonestar! :rockband: :cloud9:
