I can’t believe this is actually coming to Orlando. It’s crazy how much Disney World is building right now...

All the Disney parks/resorts I know of, seem to go through "phases" in building new stuff, etc. And this really looks like Orlando is getting a lot of new stuff in the coming years. Good for them. It's deserved.

The 2020's are going to be a good time, going to a lot of global Disney Parks, actually. :smile:

I loved this ride at Shanghai Disney. It will be a great addition. Initially I thought it was odd to place it right next to Space Mountain, but it will look cool and fit in.
NOWW.... bring the Pirates technology to Disneyworld (Like an Indiana Jones themed boat ride at Animal Kingdom or something!)

On Thursday night TPR was invited to check out Villains After Hours at the Magic Kingdom! This recently-launched event runs from 10:00 PM to 1:00 AM (with event admission granting you access to the park starting at 7:00 PM) with special entertainment, food and merchandise! Like with Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, the event’s capacity is substantially lower than the normal park capacity, enabling majorly reduced wait times across the board, including for rides like Peter Pan’s Flight which typically has a 75-90 minute wait during the normal operating day.

Villains After Hours manages to pack in a lot of event-exclusive content once the 10:00 PM mark rolls around. Villains Unite The Night is a 25 minute show in front of Cinderella Castle with no shortage of projection effects, fireworks and pure fire! Maleficent the Dragon also roams the parade route at intervals throughout the night. This float from the daytime Festival of Fantasy parade really stuns at night, lighting up the dimly lit Hub and Main Street USA buildings with its constant jets of fiery breath.

Besides the entertainment at the event, Disney has managed to plus two of their signature attractions, Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean in unique ways. Space Mountain operates in total darkness with a sinister new soundtrack—seriously, the experience of having no sight in the ride (not even the launch tunnel) is amazing! And for Pirates of the Caribbean, some new pirates have invaded the attraction, roaming the queues and interacting with guests while they wait to board their ships... Keep an eye out for a familiar face to show up in the ride, making an appearance only during Villains After Hours!

Something that will surely appeal to guests of this event is the inclusion of unlimited popcorn, ice cream (Mickey Bars!!!), sodas and bottled water, available to be picked up at kiosks throughout the park! Honestly, this is a pretty clever way of coming up with a unique set of unlimited offerings to compare to Halloween’s unlimited candy or Christmas’ unlimited hot chocolate and cookies... I could argue that this is the best value of the three!

For those looking to indulge in a few more unique culinary options, there are purchasable offerings throughout the park that are exclusively available to event guests. While mostly sweet (brownies, tarts, etc), there are a few savory choices like the Evil Emperor Zurg’s Noodles and the buffalo chicken nachos on black bean chips. There are also several unique beverages including a bubbling strawberry soda, a chocolate-rimmed Fanta Orange/Coca-Cola hybrid and a frozen mocktail that can satisfy your thirst for a drink beyond the standard bottled fare offered at the unlimited kiosks.

With minimal wait times, unlimited treats like Mickey Bars, some awesome entertainment and a few unique enhancements to classic attractions, Villains After Hours is definitely worth your time! If anything, this event manages to make the wait for the Halloween Party and Christmas Party seasons much easier to handle, as this similar offering takes pages from those established books and yet, still stands on its own as a unique and exciting new event!

I just bought my Mickey's Not-So-Scary "Party Pass!" It is $299 and it is good EVERY NIGHT (except Halloween Night) of the event! I can't wait! This is EXACTLY what I was hoping Walt Disney World would offer for the event! You need to CALL (407) 939-5277 to buy the ticket!

The Halloween events aren't really my thing but that's a ridiculously good deal, especially considering that Halloween starts in August now.

If they also do this for the Christmas event I might spring on it!

I liked the Halloween event better than Christmas. More immersive IMO especially at the front gate with the photo ops. Christmas just seemed kind of bland. Your mileage may vary of course.

What a deal! It's $120 for a single night of the Halloween party at Disneyland and there is no pass option available.

If I lived within an hour's drive, that would be a "Take my damn money!" deal.
