SAN DIEGO, April 10, 2016 – From the first time the theme was introduced three seasons ago, “Disney Week” on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ quickly became a favorite of the competitors and fans.

Ten couples will perform to songs from Disney movie favorites old and new. ABC didn’t issue an official release with the performance lineup as it has in past weeks, but many of the stars have talked about their assignments in interviews or on social media. Hat tip to our favorite fan blog, Pure DWTS, for confirming several others. We highly recommend following if you’re a fan.
