Cruella de Vil Hosts the House of De Vil-lains Halloween House Party
For Halloween Time at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2023, Cruella de Vil from Disney’s 101 Dalmatians is taking charge. Cruella is gathering all of her darlings together to throw a wickedly fun Halloween house party called House of De Vil-lains.
For House of De Vil-lains, Guests can wear their most mischievous attire and celebrate spooky season with some of Disney’s most beloved (and feared!) villains. Cruella will take over The Pavilion and transform it into a party hot spot, with all of the villains invited along for the fun. Guests will enjoy a devilish DJ along with wicked refreshments prepared by Horace and Jasper (Cruella’s trusty henchmen).
Guests also won’t want to miss the onsite photographers who’ll snap photos and turn your devilish looks into a magazine cover. Oh, and there will be face painting, temporary tattoos, and even outrageous effects to make every villain-inspired outfit even better. During the party, Cruella and her fellow villains will perform a wicked spectacle with an original number, and Guests will get to participate in a mini fashion show.
Throughout House of De Vil-lains, Guests will have the chance to meet various villains in person. The guest list includes classic characters like The Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Hades from Hercules, Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, and of course the hostess herself, Cruella.
