NEW YORK -- "Disney Night" is up next on "Dancing with the Stars" and one contestant is ready to take on her role as "Mary Poppins."

Justina Machado from "One Day at a Time" will be dancing to "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

"My main concern when I get out there is just, please remember every step, please remember every step!" she said. "So when it happens you are just like, 'Yes! I did it!' and then you're like, 'Oh I gotta get judged now,' so it's all been great."

She and pro-partner Sasha Farber are taking on the Charleston this week.

"He's very diligent and a work horse, so you know, we get in there and we do our thing," Machado said. "That's something I used to see in the movies, the black and white movies, it's hard!"

You won't want to miss the start of "Disney Night" as host Tyra Banks takes you down memory lane with the celebrities showing off their favorite classic Disney films.

In a first for Disney Night, one couple will be eliminated at the end of the show.
