Imagine a night where Disney Villains take over the Magic Kingdom and haunt us with devilishly entertaining shows and snacks just to DIE for. Get ready, because Disney Villains After Hours 2020 starts tonight!
This event was so popular in 2019 that it is making a return in 2020 and with even more wickedly exciting entertainment!
I was able to go to this event in June of 2019 and had the best experience. The lines were shorter, the park was not crowded and I was able to try themed treats throughout the night.
Villain After Hours 2020 Food
Some of the snacks were actually free throughout the night! I know it’s included in my admission fee, but it just feels better when you say “free”.
The items that were included throughout the night were ice cream (yes, Mickey Bars count!), popcorn, and select bottled beverages.
Here are some of the devilishly divine themed treats that will be available for purchase at Disney Villains After Hours events:
Villains Take Over
There are still no character meet-and-greets!
Although you will be able to see many rare characters on stage and around the park, there are no scheduled character meetings at this event.
If you are dying to meet the King of the Underworld, you won’t be able to take a picture with him, but you will be able to snap lots of photos of him as he takes center stage in “Villains Unite The Night”.
This is a stage show performed at Cinderella Castle, where many of our favorite villains will make an appearance.
You will also be able to see Megara on stage. She is one of my favorite characters and I have wanted to meet her forever. Although she does not do a meet-and-greet, being able to see her beside Hades offering her witty banter and side remarks on stage is good enough for me! Here are more photos from Villains Unite the Night from the 2019!
Exclusive Event Merch
Hades is my favorite Disney Villain, so I went a little overboard at the gift shop last year at the event. This year, it looks like Hades is making a return as the star of the event merchandise!
Nightmare Before Christmas fans will be pleased to see Oogie Boogie featured on some of the other shirts being offered! Not to mention, you can take a light-up Oogie Boogie tumbler home with you to commemorate the event.
All of the designs look very different from last year, and I am specifically excited to get my hands on the Hades hoodie.
Get in the Spirit
Do you want to be as glam as Ursula? As regal as The Evil Queen? How about as dazzling as Maleficent? Get a makeover! We might be too old for The Bibbity Bobbity Boutique, but Guests of any age can get a Character Couture Makeover.
This service is described as offering one-of-a-kind looks that have been inspired by the most iconic Disney characters! If this is something you are interested in, be sure to book your appointment well in advance. You can call (407) WDW-GLAM to check availability.
