LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The lightning-quick footwork and heart-pounding Celtic rhythms that have thrilled audiences around the world are back at Walt Disney World Resort, bringing audiences to their feet during the free-form Irish spectacular "The Best of Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance" -- performing live June 18-Aug. 26 at Epcot.

"Last summer’s engagement was an enormous hit with our guests, and we are delighted to bring this world-class, high-energy presentation show back," says Laurie Speights, general manager for Epcot Entertainment. "It’s great for the whole family and a perfect addition to our continuing celebration of world cultures."

The summer blockbuster series steps up with a daily performance schedule of 30-minute shows featuring highlights from selected touring productions. Performances are at the America Gardens Theatre and are included with Epcot admission. Show times are 3, 4:30, 5:45 and 7:10 p.m.

An intricate set, colorful costumes, dramatic music and lighting all help bring to life a mesmerizing story of good versus evil.
