Walt Disney World Resort is kicking off February by celebrating Black History Month with a slew of new features. Disney will roll out several options for guests to “celebrate soulfully” beyond February, too.
These upcoming offerings honor Black heritage and culture through music, food, art and more.
“The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure” will debut this Monday, Feb. 1, at EPCOT and continue beyond the end of the month inside The American Adventure. Featuring Joe Gardner from Disney and Pixar’s “Soul” (now streaming on Disney+), this new exhibit showcases historic artifacts of famous jazz musicians, inviting you on a musical tour of the United States to learn more about this colorful, inspiring and constantly evolving genre of music.
Even Disney Springs will offer jazz-inspired performances, new art displays, special food menus and more for everyone to enjoy.
Musicians will performed special music sets for three evenings per week – Motown Mondays, Jazz Thursdays and Smooth Sundays. So keep an eye out for these special musical performances at Disney Springs! In terms of food, Amorette’s Patisserie will offer treats inspired by “Soul” and “The Princess and the Frog.” Also, several retail locations will spotlight products from Black designers, artists and visionaries.
Stat tuned for more announcements on offerings at Disney World!
