Disney Vacation Guide: Davy Jones fans get Micky Dolenz added to Flower Power concert roster

With Davy Jones’ death last month, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival lost a performer who’d been a mainstay of the event’s Flower Power concert series for more than a decade.

Based on suggestions from fans of Davy Jones and The Monkees, Disney felt it fitting that Micky Dolenz perform at the 2012 festival in his former bandmate’s place. Dolenz will hit the stage on the last weekend of the festival, playing May 18-20.

Other artists to perform this year include:

  • Herman’s Hermits
  • The Orchestra featuring former members of ELO and ELO Part II
  • Chuck Negron
  • The Turtles Featuring Flo & Eddie
  • Paul Revere & The Raiders
  • The Spinners
  • Chubby Checker & The Wildcats
  • The Guess Who
  • Starship Starring Mickey Thomas
  • Jose Feliciano

These musicians from the 60s and 70s won’t be the only entertainment seen in Epcot this spring. Throughout the duration of the 19th Annual Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, which takes place this year from March 7-20, stars from HGTV’s most popular shows will be on hand for demos and to give their advice to guests at the festival.

HGTV stars to appear:

  • John Gidding from Curb Appeal
  • Sabrina Soto from The High Low Project
  • Jason Cameron of DIY Network’s Desperate Landscapes and Man Caves
  • Camille Styles
  • Dan Faires of DanMade and HGTV Design Star Season 5
  • Brandon Johnson of My Yard Goes Disney
  • Meg Caswell Holladay of Meg’s Great Rooms
  • Monica Pedersen of Dream Home 2012 and Designed to Sell
  • Antonio Ballatore of The Antonio Treatment
  • Carter Oosterhouse of Million Dollar Rooms
  • Genevieve Gorder of Dear Genevieve and HGTV Design Star
