#ESPN Wide World of Sports is a new venue for #Night of Joy at #Walt Disney World. The two-night event, which features concerts by some of Christian music's hottest performers, used to take place at the Magic Kingdom. Now that it's in the sports complex, fans can purchase a special add-on that gives them premium seating for the acts that play in Champion Stadium.

Guaranteed great seats for Night of Joy

In years past, the Night of Joy concerts were standing-room only because the Magic Kingdom doesn't have venues geared toward concerts. At ESPN Wide World of Sports, three stages will run simultaneously at Champion Stadium, the HP Fieldhouse, and the Jostens Center, offering a more comfortable experience for everyone.

Those fans who want to guarantee a spot for the Champions Stadium performances can purchase premium seating for $59 per person plus tax for the Friday line-up for $119 plus tax for Saturday. For both nights, the cost is $149 plus tax.

Premium seating is limited and includes a commemorative Night of Joy lanyard and pin with each ticket. You can purchase these special tickets online on the Disney website. ESPN Wide World of Sports opens at 5 p.m., and the shows start at  6:30 p.m. While there's plenty of room for fans at this massive Walt Disney World venue, purchasing premium seating means ensuring that you'll have a prime spot for your favorite performers. The Friday night acts in Champion Stadium are Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin, and Francesca Battistelli. On Saturday, The Newsboys, For King and Country, and Hillsong Young & Free take the stage.

Disney theme park admission included

In addition to being assured of getting a good seat for some of the best Night of Joy acts, you'll get Saturday admission to one of the four Walt Disney World theme parks if you buy premium seating for both nights. Admission starts at theme park opening, so you can spend the day at the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Disney's Animal Kingdom and head over to ESPN Wide World of Sports in the evening for the non-stop music.

During Night of Joy, all three stages will feature simultaneous performances throughout the night. Whether or not you purchase the premium seating, you can wander between the three venues to catch your favorite acts on each stage at ESPN Wide World of Sports. However, the special seats are only available in Champion Stadium.
