Disney’s Night of Joy Expands in 2016

posted on September 25th, 2015 by Charles Stovall, Public Relations Manager


We’ve just gotten through the whirlwind of two sold-out evenings of Disney’s Night of Joy 2015; and now we have some exciting news to share about next year’s event.

In 2016, we’re expanding Disney’s Night of Joy. The concerts will be hosted in great indoor and outdoor venues at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, and Night of Joy guests will get admission to Magic Kingdom Park for fellowship and fun, with access to favorite attractions.

Hosting the concert portion of Night of Joy at the Sports Complex will allow more guests to attend the event, and indoor stages should make for a great music experience regardless of the weather.

Plus, dedicated transportation will be provided so that guests can easily move from Magic Kingdom Park to the Sports Complex.

Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more details.

Disney’s Night of Joy 2015: Recap

posted on September 14th, 2015 by Charles Stovall, Public Relations Manager


Well another year for Disney’s Night of Joy has come and gone. It was a whirlwind of activity – the concerts, the rides – everything went splendidly.

There were tons of unforgettable moments at this year’s event, and we wanted to share one of the happiest.

Night of Joy artist and American Idol® finalist Colton Dixon asked girlfriend Annie Coggeshall to marry him.

We caught up with the happy couple shortly after the proposal.

“I can’t believe I’m already at this stage of life. I’ve seen friends and family make this step, and it’s always seemed so far away, but here we are. After mulling over how and where to propose, I could think of no better place than Walt Disney World.” Colton said. “I’ve known that Annie was the one for me for a long time, but God’s timing is always perfect. Listening to Him and being intentional in our time together and apart as we grew as people was so important. Thank you to all of my friends and family who cheered me on during this time! There it is guys and gals. I’m getting married!!!!!!!”

Colton performed along with 16 other top Christian artists at this year’s event. Artists performed to sold out crowds both Friday and Saturday night on stages around Magic Kingdom Park.

One of my favorite blog posts to write each year is when I get to provide you, our loyal readers, with the entertainment schedule for Disney’s Night of Joy.
