Default No more night of Joy event

After 35 years, Disney is no longer hosting the Night of Joy event at Disney World.

Currently, there are no plans to bring the event back in the future.

Well......it is sad.

We only attended the event once, when it was held at Magic Kingdom. It was a well run and a well attended event.

After 35 years, I do not recall ever reading about how bad the event was or unruly or anything negative, at least in a big way.

Very sad. We attended maybe 7-8 times. Always had a great time with fabulous acts.

Glad to see that at least two acts will be heard on the Eat-to-the-Beat concert series. Perhaps this idea will take off and the bands will be sprinkled through the year and across different events?

It's our fault. The 5 of us were at the very last concert and when it started to get windy and cold, my daughter said "That's it. We're never doing this again".
One of the promoters must have thought a Disney VP said it.

So sad. Add it to the list of things taken away/missed at Disney. (That list is getting quite long....I'm still not over Off Kilter removal. Still boycotting any replacement as my only way to make a tiny, small stand!!!)

Sorry, didn't mean to make light. I read a bit about the event, and it sounds really neat. (Not my cup of tea personally, though, as I generally do not enjoy concerts or live music, but it's too bad that they've gotten rid of it.)

I wonder how well it did after being moved over to the sports complex. I had always heard that this event is the one the castmembers dreaded the most, with the most unruly teens, more so than grad nights. Probably because of less chaperones. But I admit I've never been, so it is just what I've heard. The promoters could still make it some unofficial days I guess, like they do with gay days.
