Tonight is the much-anticipated Disney night on Dancing With the Stars, with the lineup featuring performances set to Disney music for each of the dancing teams.
Last week marked the first elimination of the season, meaning that the performers will likely take it all up a notch this week. The show will open with host Tyra Banks and celebrities talking about their favorite classic Disney movies.
At the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated. This will be the first time that a couple will be eliminated on Disney night in Dancing With the Stars history, according to the ABC press release.

Len Goodman will also jump in every now and then in some capacity, though he will not physically be at the show.
‘Dancing With the Stars’ Will Continue on Monday Nights For the Rest of the Season

Though the first few episodes have varied, DWTS will continue to air on Monday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC for the rest of the season, which should last at least through the beginning of December.
Starting on October 13, The Bachelorette will be back in ABC’s lineup with Clare Crawley’s season airing on Tuesday nights rather than on Mondays, which some people were expecting for the upcoming season because DWTS came back at the same time.
Tune in to Dancing With the Stars at 8 p.m. on ABC to watch the contestants perform to classic Disney songs and see if your favorite couple makes it through to next week’s show.
