  1. Hmm, I’m not super excited about the acts we’ll be able to see, although Dennis DeYoung was pretty good last year. One of these years, we’ll have to get down there earlier in the Festival so that I can see the Pointer Sisters. Dare me! 😉

  2. Maybe someday! I typically don’t stick around for the acts late enough on weekends, or don’t make it over post work (I just want to go home lol). I do try to make a point to see BBVD, though! 🙂

  3. Eh, I m not a fan at all of eat to beat or these acts. I’ll honestly not even go to Wdw during these times.
