Thirteen top memories of 2013: Meeting Night of Joy artists at Walt Disney World

See also

I'm a big Christian music fan, so I love Night of Joy at the Magic Kingdom. It's an amazing event that brings the best contemporary Christian bands to the park for two nights in early September. They appear on three different stages, so your only problem is narrowing down which bands you want to see and making sure you're at the night stage at the right time.

The event is enough on its own to make my top 13 list, but I had an added treat this past year. I had lunch with several of the artists, including some of my favorites like Building 429 and Steven Curtis Chapman. Each of the artists has an amazing testimony, and meeting them in person is such a powerful experience.

I was also able to attend both Night of Joy evenings, and even rainy weather couldn't dampen the festivities. Jump to this article for a video overview.

Night of Joy is a hard ticket even that starts after the park closes. Many of the rides are open, but don't count on riding them. You'll be much too busy rushing around and trying to catch as much of the great music as possible.
