Just a little mid-week update on Disney Night of Joy.

We are pumped up at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, getting ready for the big event next weekend. We wanted to give you a sense of the concert schedule; so that folks planning on attending could plan their nights.

And, of course, if you haven’t bought a ticket yet, there’s still time.

We also wanted to make sure you knew about the other fun offerings at the event. To make sure we are preparing for any inclement weather, we are moving some events which were part of Fields of Joy last year, into the J Center as part of Fan Fest, which includes appearances by some of your favorite Night of Joy artists, Disney character meet-and-greets, video games and sporting activities.

  • When will a cancel or reschedule be determined based on the storm?

  • What’s status of concert since Florida under hurricane warning

  • Thanks for the update! I’m flying my family from Texas for the second year in a row. Looking forward to a great event. I wanted to share a suggestion. Last year (and this), we paid extra for the seating on the field of the Champions Stadium. While the seating is good for many, I’m sure, I hope you will consider having a section in the middle of the stage for those who are willing to stand in order to get closer to the action and enjoy being in the midst of the crowd (like the Fieldhouse). Then, you can surround that area with chairs on the sides and behind. You probably could even offer another 20% more field passes this way. Thanks for considering…

  • Any news on cancellations due to Hurricane Irma?

  • @Eric, Friday night usually goes until 1AM. Saturday night until Midnight.

  • 1pm Eric. Someone really needs to post this on the Night of Joy Facebook account.

  • MercyMe goes on at 11:45PM? How late does this concert go? I hope they get at least an hour long set, if not longer.
