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!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
