Christian Nights in the Parks

Do you like Christian Music?  Do you like having fun and riding rides?  Well, why not combine the two and hit one or both of these upcoming events!

album-art-thrive_0Every year Christians come to WDW and Universal Studios Orlando to be with other Christians for a family night that features renown Christian Rock artists and bands. It is up to you to decide which park to choose and which line up of entertainment is more to your liking. I like the idea of 3 day no park hopping – both nights at the event over at USO, but also like the more kid friendly and lower cost WDW event tickets.


Joy of Night

September 05 – September 06, 2014 at the Magic Kingdom from 7:30 PM to 1:00 AM with admission starting at 4 pm. Cost is $59 per person age 3 and up for one night, $108 for both nights if purchased in advance. Groups get one admission per 10 purchased, advance cost of $54 for one night, free admission to a water park or DisneyQuest with 2 night ticket purchase, Youth Leader Lounge, group leader gets a wristband for front of line privileges, and discounts on hotels and park admissions. Gather up friends to make a group of 11 people which would cost $540 instead of $649. Group ticket purchases must be turned in by August 22, 2014 as there is 2 weeks required for various things. Rides and attractions will be open.

Rock the Universe
