For the first time in Night of Joy's history, Night of Joy will not be held inside one of Disney's theme parks.  While it will still be within the property of Walt Disney World, for Night of Joy 2016 the event will be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.  While this may allow more people to physically attend the event, part of the magic of Night of Joy will be lost not being in the world renown Magic Kingdom, (or even in Disney's Hollywood Studios). 

The pricing for the event has changed and there are now multiple options with single night tickets, combination tickets with day passes to any of Walt Disney World's four theme parks, and for early purchasers, the addition of either Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach water parks.  The theme parks and water parks will be open regular hours and transportation will be provided from the Magic Kingdom directly to the ESPN Wide World of Sports. Transportation will also be provided from Epcot, Disney Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom as well as Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, and Disney's Pop Century Resort.  Transportation form any other location would require transfers to one of these locations.

The ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will have performances split between three seperate venues.  Performance time will be posted when available.  Night of Joy 2016 will see mostly returning performers from previous events such as mainstays Mercy Me, Newsboys, and Thousand Foot Krutch.  There are 4 new performers for the event which include Stars Go Dim, Zealand Worship, Young & Free, and Tim Timmons.

Extra activities in additions to the concerts will be the "Fields of Joy" were attendees will be able to play 4v4 soccer matches, test their free throws, and other sports related events.  Food trucks will be available in this area.  There will be question and answer sessions with some of the performers on Saturday night taking place at the Jostens Center,  Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and other characters will also be on hand for meet and greets from 5:00pm to 11:00pm both nights.  And for the first time Disney is allowing some of the bands to sell their own merchandise at the Jostens Center as well.
