What's On TV: 'Dancing with the Stars' Sneak Peek- Disney Night

Dancing with the Stars airs Monday's on ABC
"Dancing with the Stars" meets the '"Happiest Place on Earth" when the series airs their annual Disney Night episode live, Monday, October 14 on ABC. The opening dance number will take place at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, in a pre-recorded segment and will feature the cast on Main Street, U.S.A. and in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, choreographed by Zach Woodlee (“Grease Live” and “Glee”).

All throughout the show, the celebrity contestants and their pros take head to Disneyland to seek inspiration for their dance numbers at Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. One lucky “Dancing with the Stars” couple will even get to travel to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and take the controls of the Millennium Falcon. From thrill attractions to favorite Disney characters and more, this will be a “Disney Night” to remember.

Tonight's dances will be to beloved Disney songs such as “We’re All in This Together” from “High School Musical,” “Under the Sea” from “The Little Mermaid,” “A Spoonful of Sugar” from “Mary Poppins,” “Beauty and the Beast” from the live-action “Beauty and the Beast,” and “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from the live-action “The Lion King,” among others.

In addition, a special dance inspired by new song “Into the Unknown” from “Disney’s Frozen II” will be featured. And special looks from Disney+’s upcoming “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” and live-action “Lady and the Tramp” will be shown.

Tonight's live vote (via abc.com, the ABC app and SMS/text) will be combined with the judges’ scores and tabulated in real-time. The live votes will occur each week only during the live broadcast in the EDT/CDT time zones (but fans in all U.S. time zones may vote within that window).

Country artist Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko (Samba)
