Villains will take over Walt Disney World for 10 nights this summer
If you prefer Maleficent and Ursula over Aurora and Ariel, Walt Disney World‘s new after-hours event is for you.
At the Disney Villains After Hours at Magic Kingdom, guests can spend time with all of their favorite baddies and enjoy access to more than 20 popular attractions with extremely low wait times.
During this new event, which kicks off on June 9 and runs for 10 evenings through August 10, guests will also experience a new stage show called Villains Unite the Night, which features Hades from Hercules, Jafar from Aladdin, Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog, and more on stage at Cinderella’s Castle.
Plus, riders of Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean will experience limited-edition effects mid-ride that are inspired by Disney’s more sinister characters.
The Maleficent Dragon parade float will also make its way through the park many times throughout the evening and will breathe fire at night for the first time ever.
Of course, all of Magic Kingdom will be transformed with eerie lighting and spooky music. Guests can also indulge in special villain-themed food and beverage offerings such as Hades Nachos and the Not-So-Poison Apple Cupcake, which are available for purchase. Ice cream, popcorn and select beverages are included in the admission ticket and will be stationed at carts throughout the park.

Although the villains will be entertaining throughout the evening, they will not engage in character meet and greets during the event.
Tickets to the Villains After Hours Party will allow guests to enter the parks beginning at 7 p.m. However, the actual party festivities run from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Rates begin at $139 per person plus tax for an advance-purchase ticket, and go up to $144 on the day of the event. Tickets go on sale beginning April 29, 2019.
For those who want to experience Disney After Hours sans villains, the park also offers three other nighttime experiences on select nights in the spring and summer in Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
