Night of Joy Celebrates 30th Year at Magic Kingdom in September

It’s one of the longest music festivals in Orlando, and Night of Joy is returning to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World for its 30th year.

… MercyMe with Minnie Mouse …

September 7 and 8 are the dates for this year’s contemporary Christian music festival. Sixteen artists will take to the three stages set up – the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage, the Galaxy Stage, and the Rockettower Plaza Stage.

Friday will offer Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin, NEEDTOBREATHE, Brandon Heath, Red, Francesca Battistelli, Royal Tailor, and Disciple.

Saturday’s line-up is MercyMe, Third Day, Lecrae, Theresa Bailey, Yolanda Adams, Thousand Foot Krutch, Kutless, Dara Maclean, and Chris August.

The official Disney Parks blog has the exact times and stage location for each artist.

Night of Joy is an after-hours event, running from 7:30pm to 1am each evening. In addition to the music, many of the Magic Kingdom’s attractions will be open, as well.

Tickets may be purchased in advance for $52.95 (plus tax), for each day. If still available, tickets may be purchased day of at the park’s ticket windows for $62.95 (plus tax). This is a separately ticketed event – regular admission tickets and passes will not work.
