Night of Joy 2015

Hey There Love Bug!

Last month I was blessed enough to visit the happiest place on earth for the well known christian concert known as Night of Joy!

Night of Joy is an annual hard ticket 2-day event that takes place at the Magic Kingdom.  Dozens of well known christian singers and bands come together to perform their most popular hits across three stages scattered throughout the park.

This year, artists included favorites like Francesca Batistelli, Big Daddy Weave, Colton Dixon, Jeremy Camp, Mercy Me, Skillet, For King and Country, Lecrae, I Am They, Rend Collective, and much more!

Night of joy begins around 7 PM and ends around 1 AM.  The great thing about having this event in the evening is that it is only sold to a limited number of guests, which makes the parks less crowded than usual.  The concerts are also great in the evening because the weather is cooler than the mornings and afternoons and the special effects lighting really makes the performances stand out!  There are also select rides and restaurants open for this event, so you can enjoy some Disney magic in between some of the concerts.

While having various artists perform on three different stages is a great idea for crowd control, it can be challenging to see all of your favorites considering they all perform at different times and at different stages around the parks.  Guests may have to choose one performer over another if their concert times overlap.

I have to say, the concert were really amazing.  All of the performers did such a fantastic job of not only performing their songs, but creating an environment where everyone felt like they were worshiping together.  It was a very enlightening feeling and I felt positive vibes from everyone.  MY favorite performer this year had to be Francesca Batistelli.  She was incredibly personable and made the concert feel intimate and enjoyable at the same time.

After the concert, my friends and I decided to check out the merchandise.  This year, there were two shirts and a cap available for purchase.

If you love christian music, or even have a close relationship with the lord, this is a great place to come and visit.  You will be blown away at the concerts from each performer, but you will be more amazed with the amount of positivity and worship that is infused with the crowd.  Night of Joy is held every September and is usually on a Friday and Saturday Night.

I can’t wait to visit again next year, and hopefully you will too!  If you are not able to visit, there is usually a live stream online where guests from all around the world can engage in the concerts via satellites.
