***UPDATE: Disney has not renewed the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series this year. No announcement was made it was quietly canceled.
From Jennifer in Durham, North Carolina. I’ve heard that the Epcot Sounds Like Summer Concert Series has been discontinued. Is this true? Are they coming up with something new to fill the American Gardens Theater in the summer months?”

Jennifer, I don’t know where you heard that. I haven’t heard that. I would be shocked if that happened.
The Sounds Like Summer Concert Series, one of the most popular things Disney does in the summer. Last year, just to let you know, last year the Sounds Like Summer Series was not announced. There was nothing about it on Disney’s website. No news, no nothing until around April 1st.
Somewhere around that time, I think it was the end of March, one of the Disney websites posted that a certain group had on their page that they were doing a concert at the American Gardens Theater and had the dates.
Guess what happened the next day? Disney announced the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much at this point. If we haven’t heard anything by mid-April, yeah, there’s probably something going on. Just give it a little while.
We haven’t heard that it’s being discontinued. If you’ve heard that, if you’ve got a source for that, send me a message on my Contact Dad page and let me know.
I don’t see that. I went looking this morning. Most of the Disney websites that have information like that are projecting, had their pages already up for the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series for 2017 and To Be Announced type things. I certainly haven’t heard anything along those lines.
Dad’s Bottom Line
The bottom line, no, I haven’t heard that. I don’t expect that.
