Disney World’s Long-Running ‘Night of Joy’ Event Cancelled

Walt Disney World

Rumors had been circulating for a few weeks now that Disney’s World’s “Night of Joy” event would be coming to an end. Per several online sources reporting that a Disney spokesperson has confirmed today, we can confirm this is indeed the case.

“Night of Joy” was was a yearly Christian music festival held at Walt Disney World. Previous performers for the event included several big names in Christian music including Amy Grant, Casting Crowns, Kirk Franklin, and recently TobyMac.

“Night of Joy” began at the Magic Kingdom all the way back in 1983. Since then it has mostly been held at the Magic Kingdom with the exception of two years at Hollywood Studios and most recently, it was held at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports. Last year was the last year it was held and one of the nights was canceled due to Hurricane Irma.

Even with the cancelation of “Night of Joy”, Guests may still have the chance to catch their favorite Christian performers. MercyMe who has performed at several “Night of Joy” events has been added to the 2018 Eat to the Beat Concert Series lineup offered during Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival.
