While artists perform at several stages, many popular Magic Kingdom Park attractions also are available for guests. In addition, there are special benefits for groups of 10 or more. Additional information about individual and group tickets is available at

    • Thanks!

  • Whats the chances of doing this event in Disneyland???

    • I don’t know. We don’t have any plans currently.

  • Can’t wait!! Mercy Me is the absolute best!!

  • We have been twice before. It is an amazing experience.

  • Do you have an estimation of how long each group will perform? We can’t wait to see Britt Nicole and 1 Girl Nation!

    • Most of the groups play between 40-50 minutes.

  • Good morning. I would love to assit this year, but I think it is nor probably for me.
    This Night of Joy you make ir every year?
    Is there going to be a 2015 Night of Joy?
    or a 2016 maybe?
    Please answer me
    Thanks you 🙂

  • Hey Where I can find the maps of the different stages?

  • We don’t have the map finalized yet. The main stage is in front of Cinderella Castle. The “Galaxy” stage is set up in Tomorrowland beside Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. The Rockettower Plaza Stage is between Space Mountain and Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress.

  • Thanks Chas!

  • We bought our e-tickets in July and I’m wondering how we get our free admissions to the water parks? Thank you! Can’t wait!

    • If you purchased the 2-night Promotional Individual Night of Joy ticket (orders of less than 10 tickets) before August 25, 2014, the Waterpark or DisneyQuest admission is attached to the ticket you received for the Night of Joy event. If you purchased the 2-night Promotional Group Night of Joy ticket (orders of 10 or more tickets) before August 22, 2014, the Waterpark or DisneyQuest admission is attached to the ticket you received for the Night of Joy event.

  • Hi. This comments board is pretty helpful. We are curious, if the first band (MercyMe) goes on at 7:40, when do the gates open to allow guests to come in? I used to come in around 6:30 but I see the times have been changed and it goes on later now. I remember seeing Newsboys and they wanted to keep playing even though their time was technically up, and they asked Disney and you guys were like “sure!” We felt like we got an extra little bit of show and they put on a good one. Lots of good Night Of Joy memories- and now I get to share them with my wife. Thanks for your help, Charles!!

    • Admission for Disney’s Night of Joy allows you into the Magic Kingdom park at 4 p.m. on the day of the event. Enjoy the event!

  • Can we bring in chairs (foldable) from outside of the park? We plan on squatting on front of the castle for that lineup and it would be nice to sit down between the shows.

  • I purchased an individual ticket for both nights before the waterpark deadline. What, exactly, do you mean when you say my ticket is attached to the ticket I received? Nothing on my ticket indicates a waterpark ticket is part of my ticket! If it is just encoded, do I simply show my NOJ ticket at the entrance to the waterpark?
