Wicked Summer Fun at Walt Disney World’s new ‘Villains After Hours’


Everyone loves a great villain – especially a great Disney villain!

Now you can mingle with your favorite Disney baddies at Walt Disney World’s Villains After Hours, which is part of the Disney After Hours events at Magic Kingdom Park.

This special ticketed event takes place on select nights from June 6 to August 8, 2019. Read on to find out how to get in on the wicked fun!

Late Night Party in the Park

Disney After Hours was introduced last year as a specially ticketed event that allowed guests to explore late nights at Magic Kingdom Park. The number of tickets sold is limited, so you’ll usually experience reduced wait times at many rides and attractions. Admission also includes free ice cream novelties (think Mickey ice cream bars!), popcorn, and bottled drinks.

The event has since expanded to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, so you can spend the night playing with the toys in Andy’s backyard or flying on the back of a banshee on the moon of Pandora. Participating parks host After Hours events on select nights, so check the Walt Disney World website for dates and times.

Chillin’ With the Villains

The newest addition to Disney After Hours has your beloved bad guys and gals stealing the spotlight for a night of dastardly deeds. You’ll be treated to a brand new stage show, Villains Unite the Night, hosted by Hercules’s nemesis Hades, along with some ghastly guests. Plus, Maleficent the dragon, the star of the daytime Festival of Fantasy parade, makes her After Dark debut, breathing fire into the night sky.

All that plus special villainous treats and merchandise and more, and you’ll be sure to have a wickedly wonderful time!

Tickets for the 2019 Villains After Hours events are $139 plus tax in advance, or $144 plus tax on the night of the event. Annual Passholder and Disney Vacation Club Members can take advantage of a $30 discount and purchase tickets for $109. Tickets for these specific Disney Villains After Hours event nights will go on sale April 29. 

More Extras

In addition to the nighttime fun of Disney After Hours, you can check out Early Morning Magic at Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom Park or Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Get up early and hit some of your favorite attractions before the park opens for the day. Ride until the sun comes up, then fuel up with breakfast, which is included in your admission, before taking on the rest of your Disney day.

Current ticket prices for Early Morning Magic are $79 per adult and $69 per child, before tax. Theme park admission is also required.
