Many special events are held throughout the year at the Walt Disney World Resort like the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Another popular event held at the Magic Kingdom like those two parties is a evening of concerts called Night of Joy.
Night of Joy is a contemporary Christian music festival. For 2012, the two-night event is scheduled for September 7th and September 8th.
Both nights offer a different line-up of live performances from some of the biggest names in Christian music. The released list of performers for 2012 include:
Friday, September 7, 2012
- Casting Crowns
- Chris Tomlin
- Francesca Battistelli
- Brandon Heath
- Royal Tailor
Saturday, September 8, 2012
- Third Day
- Chris August
- Yolanda Adams
- Thousand Foot Krutch
- Dara Maclean
Night of Joy starts at 7:30 PM on the nights shown. It will run until 1 AM.
This party is a hard ticket event and requires a special ticket for entrance. Standard park admission will not work. General guest hours those days run from 9AM-7PM. After that time, guests without party tickets will be directed towards the exits.
Not only do attendees of the party get a chance to enjoy the concerts, they will also be able to ride many of the major attractions of Magic Kingdom. Like other special parties, the limited number of tickets sold typically insures minimal wait times at these attractions.
Ticket pricing starts at $52.95 per night. It goes up to $62.95 at the gate the day of the events. Those considering attending both parties may save some money by purchasing a ticket for both nights at the same time. The two-night ticket is being sold for $94.95.
