SAN DIEGO, April 11, 2015 – Competing on “Dancing With The Stars” is a fairy tale for some, but others will need to wish upon a star to avoid going home after “Disney Week” on Monday night.

This is the second time DWTS has featured a week of songs from Disney films, which made a popular debut with fans in Season 19 and produced one of the best routines of the entire competition, the Contemporary routine by James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd to “Let It Go” from Frozen.

We hear another song from Frozen, along with another modern Disney film, Hercules. Plenty of classics show up from Aladdin, Mary Poppins, Pinocchio, and Lady and the Tramp. How about a little swashbuckling courtesy Pirates of the Caribbean? The show kicks off with the entire cast dancing side by side with animated and live-action Disney characters. Additional Disney stars will make their appearances throughout the show.

But we’re here for the ballroom, and there is something for everyone including the first Quickstep and Waltz routines.

Chris Soules and Witney Carson, Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani, and Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev all need a little help from their Fairy Godmothers if they are going to avoid elimination this week.

Based on rehearsals and comments by the competitors during the week, Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson’s Quickstep to “Step In Time” from Mary Poppins might be the surprising showstopped. Also expected to shine are Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough in their Jazz routine to “Love Is An Open Door” from Frozen. Whoever you like, vote for your favorite.

Communities Digital News hosts a Live Online Chat weekly. It’s more fun to watch with friends. If you haven’t joined us before, we encourage you to come to the party.

Communities Digital News will host a live chat for fans of the show starting at 7:45 p.m. and continuing after the show for post-broadcast discussion.
