Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

The Agents taking over the Kingdom!
Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.

The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain.  We opted to head towards Pirates and unfortunately didn't get to experience Space Mountain as the line never got under 30 mins all night and we just weren't willing to wait!

After adventuring with the pirates some of the agents decided it was time to start the snacking.  We tried two specialty items (from different sides of the park, they were scattered throughout).  We had a big dinner before heading over so we opted to try some drinks.  The Hades Temptation was fun but definitely on the sweet side.  The Wannabe King was a great orange-coke beverage with a fun chocolate rim!  For snacks, we opted for the free ice cream and popcorn that was readily available throughout the park!  You could also get free bottled water and sodas from these stands.

There are also ton of fun PhotoPass Magic Shots throughout the park for this event.  While they were popular, we only had to wait in line behind a few people.

As the night progressed we kept on working our way through the attractions, most rides had much shorter waits than during a regular day and some had no wait at all, like Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin!

No line at all!

Once we got our fill of rides and snacks, we settled in for the final showing of the Villain's Unite The Night stage show.  The show, hosted by Hades, brings together some of your favorite Disney Villains and some unique displays of power in front of Cinderella Castle.

Just a hint of fireworks
After the show we sadly had to work our way out of the Magic Kingdom at the wee hour of just after 1am.  However, Maleficent followed us right down Main Street USA on the way out!  Seeing her at night is definitely a different spin on this awesome parade float.


The Villains bid us farewell at the end of the night which we enjoyed quite a bit!  We were able to ride multiple rides, try a few snacks, catch some photos and see the show, but there was still so much more left to do!


Who is your favorite Villain?  If they bring this event back, would you attend?  Why or why not?  Let us know in the comments!

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…
