‘Night of Joy’ event at Walt Disney World has been eliminated, and there are no plans for the series of Christian-music concerts to return to the resort in the future, a Disney World spokeswoman has confirmed.
“Last year was our last event,” the spokeswoman said told Florida’s Orlando Sentinel.
The event began in 1983 at Magic Kingdom, where it remained for most of its 35-year run. There was a two-year span at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and for the past two years, it had been held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. The second night of the 2017 event was called off because of the threat of Hurricane Irma.
Among the final performers last year were TobyMac and MercyMe. No lineup had been announced for a possible 2018 event.
The reasoning for the cancellation is that they want to keep things fresh and innovative.
