7. New limited time Disney Music show kicks off at EPCOT next year

 Disney has announced that it will be debuting a new show that will be a "showcase" of the Disney Songbook featuring the Voices of Liberty vocal group early next year as part of the slimmed down EPCOT International Festival of the Arts in 2021, which was confirmed just a few weeks ago. Details about this new show is scarce, with Disney's official website simply confirming that the Voices of Liberty will be performing songs by various well-known Disney composers and lyricists. 

This new entertainment offering is likely meant as a substitute for the Disney on Broadway concert series, which has officially been put on hold this year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and will be performed at the America Gardens Theatre.
