Disney has announced that it’s popular Villains After Hours event will return to Walt Disney World next year!

This special ticketed event will offer 24 different nights for dates between February 7 through July 10!  So there is a wide window of dates available to guests traveling to Orlando.

“Disney Villains After Hours is bringing back the villain-themed elements guests loved:

  • “Villains Unite the Night” stage show. Hades and Meg from “Hercules” will set the castle stage ablaze in this exciting and villainous show which also features appearances by Jafar, The Queen, Dr. Facilier and Maleficent.
  • Spot Maleficent the Dragon. Maleficent the Dragon, with her Steampunk style and signature wicked grin will be let loose at night – breathing fire as she creeps through the park as a one-of-a-kind experience for party guests.
  • Dance the night away at the Cinderella Castle Forecourt stage, where a party DJ will be spinning some sick beats, transforming the entire Central Plaza of the park into a killer club scene.
  • Discover surprising, villain-inspired additions to Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain.
  • Eat and drink wickedly good food & beverages. A variety of specialty food & beverage offerings will be available for purchase, including tasty desserts, drinks and dishes inspired by your favorite villainous friends.
  • Event attendees can purchase exclusive merchandise as well as items from a curated collection of the best Disney Villains merchandise available.
  • Enjoy low wait times at more than 25 attractions and experiences after the park closes to day guests.”

Being a big steampunk fan, the Maleficent dragon is one of my favorite things at Walt Disney World. She’s just beautiful! Seeing her at night is amazing! Plus I really like that they are doing more with Hades. Hercules is a fantastic film and I think it doesn’t get the love it deserves.

Tickets for this event are now on sale.

Advanced tickets are $145 (plus tax) or $155 (plus tax) at the event.

Annual Passholders and DVC members do get a $30 discount.

“Event tickets allow entry as early as 7 p.m., which gives you time to enjoy fireworks before heading off to the attractions. Select complimentary snacks and beverages are also included in the cost of admission.”  BUT, this event does not include character meet and greets with the Villains.

The price does seem a bit high but for most nights it goes to 1AM, and you have lower crowds, so it might actually be worth the money.
