‘Dancing With The Stars’ Celebrates ‘Disney100 Night’ on Oct. 17

Dancing With The Stars Disney Night

“Disney Night” is often a favorite among fans of “Dancing With The Stars,” and this year, that episode will become “Disney100 Night,” and will be dedicated to Disney’s 100th anniversary.

The Details

The pro dancers will start the show by performing an opening number to “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from “Encanto.”

It will be choreographed by Christopher Scott, with partner dances including Contemporary, Paso Doble, Jazz, Quickstep, and Viennese Waltz or Waltz.

The 11 remaining couples will then celebrate Disney’s 100th anniversary with performances to songs from beloved Disney film soundtracks.

As part of “Disney100 Night,” Hyundai is scheduled to debut the special IONIQ 5 Disney100 Platinum Edition, featuring unique Disney-inspired design elements and wheels. This commemorative vehicle is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between an auto manufacturer and Walt Disney Imagineering, and I think it looks really cool!

And that’s not all. Disney’s all-new movie “Wish,” along with “Dancing with the Stars” are making wishes come true with the “Wishes Come True Sweepstakes!” Fans can enter at (link will go live during the show) for a chance to win a trip for four to the “Dancing with the Stars” season 32 finale in Los Angeles. “Wish” arrives in theaters Nov. 22, 2023.

“Dancing with the Stars” is co-hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough, with a panel of renowned ballroom experts judging, including Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough.
