'Dancing With the Stars' Disney Night: How to Watch and What to Expect

All of the Dancing With The Stars favorites are going to Disneyland on Monday night's episode. The reality dancing competition will air Disney Night, an episode inspired by classic and contemporary Disney films.

Celebrities will be dancing to Disney music, but there are some other big perks of the theme. To start, the episode will show an exclusive dance routine that the celebrities filmed at Disneyland earlier in the week. This is the first time in Season 28 the dancers have performed anywhere but the Dancing With The Stars set. In addition, the two-hour-long show will feature details on some upcoming Disney projects. The first is the High School Musical reboot, which is expected to air on Disney Channel on November 12. The show is also expected to use a song from the upcoming live-action Lion King, according to Gold Derby.

The pre-recorded segments, which took place at Disneyland, will also show a dance couple exploring some of the park. Two particular attractions will be featured: Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and Millennium Falcon. The show will also feature a dance inspired by Frozen II.

Viewers will be able to tune in to Dancing With The Stars on Monday night to see all of the Disney perks. Despite the sponsorship and unique events planned for the episode, the general format of the show will be the same as any other week. Dancing With The Stars airs at 8 p.m. ET every week. It's important that fans who plan to vote for a specific celebrity tune in live. Season 28 saw a change in the voting system, and now all fans must cast votes before the end of the show.

Those who want to watch the series later can find Dancing With The Stars on Hulu.

It's unclear if Dancing With The Stars Disney Night will see a celebrity go home. Typically, a celebrity is sent home each Monday. Last season, however, Disney Night used some of that classic Disney magic to prevent an elimination from taking place.

On Season 28, however, there has already been one Monday without a scheduled elimination. In week three, Ray Lewis, former NFL player, was forced to leave the competition because of an injury. In his absence, no celebrity was sent home.

Nine couples are left vying for the mirror ball trophy on Dancing With The Stars Season 28. So far, the leaders seem to be Bachelorette Hannah Brown and actor James Van Der Beek, due to their consistent high scores.
