As ABC’s smash show “Dancing with the Stars” prepares to kick-off its 21st season next month, more celebrities are being announced as competitors. This morning, Disneyland park was the setting for the latest “cast reveal” on Entertainment Tonight as Alexa PenaVega and Carlos PenaVega were announced as the first-ever married couple to compete for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy joined by performers from “Paint the Night” parade, as well as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.

It’s no coincidence that this special announcement took place at Disneyland park since Alexa (who is celebrating her birthday today!) and Carlos are both huge Disneyland fans.

Check out this video to learn more about what inspires this Disney-loving couple as they prepare for their ballroom adventure.

“Dancing with the Stars” returns with an all-new season premiere on Monday, Sept. 14, at 8pm ET/PT on ABC.



  • I wish the article said somewhere in it what these two people are famous for. Sure, I could Google them, but I wish I didn’t have to just to know who these two people are.

  • Yay!! So excited! I love Alexa and Carlos!

  • I would rather hear about “regular” people like those reading and writing this. Who won the daily drawing? What did they get? Who gets the private tailgate party in Carsland?
