‘Dancing with the Stars’ Kicks off ‘Disney Week’ Tonight

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Gabriel Gibaldi

It’s “Disney Week” on “Dancing with the Stars“! The most magical “Dancing with the Stars” event of the season returns to ABC, this time as a two-night event with double the magic on “Disney Heroes Night” and “Disney Villains Night.”

The fun begins tonight, Monday, October 11, at 8 p.m. ET /PT, as the 13 remaining couples perform choreographed numbers inspired by Disney Heroes. Then, on Tuesday, October 12, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the star-studded cast turns wicked for performances inspired by Disney Villains. It all kicks off from the Disneyland Resort.

To get ready for the two dazzling nights, the couples visited Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park for inspiration, from Sleeping Beauty Castle to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Avengers Campus, Cars Land, Pixar Pier and beyond. These are just some of our favorite moments from their visit. Talk about inspiration!
