The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is entering into its final stretch, and there is still plenty of new artful fun and entertainment this weekend! The Disney on Broadway Concert Series has dazzled thousands of guests since its January debut. Five outstanding Broadway star duos have brought sensational fun and entertainment to the America Gardens Theater stage, and we are thrilled to introduce you to the sixth and final pair of performers!
