Who’s ready for “Disney Night” on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars?! Next Monday, the remaining couples will vie for fans’ votes as they dance to Disney songs from some of our favorite movies. This season’s “Disney Night” will also feature the first ever opening number at Disneyland —in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle!

What’s Happening:

  • There will be Disney magic in the ballroom as nine celebrity and pro-dancer couples compete on the fifth week of the 2019 season of Dancing with the Stars, live, Monday, October 14 (8:00-10:00 pm EDT), on ABC.
  • Episodes can also be viewed the next day on:
  • Each Monday night, the live vote (via abc.com, the ABC app and SMS/text) will be combined with the judges’ scores and tabulated in real time.
  • The live votes will occur each week only during the live broadcast in the EDT/CDT time zones (but fans in all U.S. time zones may vote within that window).



The magic of “Disney Night:”

  • For the first time in the show’s history, the opening dance number will take place at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, in a pre-recorded segment and will feature the cast on Main Street, U.S.A. and in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, choreographed by the acclaimed Zach Woodlee (Grease Live and Glee).
  • During the show, the celebrity contestants and their pros take over the Happiest Place on Earth as they seek inspiration for their dance numbers at Disney California Adventure and Disneyland.
  • One lucky Dancing with the Stars couple will even get to travel to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and take the controls of the Millennium Falcon.
  • From thrill attractions to favorite Disney characters and more, this will be a “Disney Night” to remember.
