Frightfully Fun Entertainment
There’s an amazing stage show during Villains After Hours. Villains Unite the Night features five fan-favorite villains in a song and dance show all about being wicked. The show runs twice during the event at 10:00 PM and 11:30 PM at the castle. This show is really good and since it’s exclusive to the party as well you don’t want to miss it.
Brand new this year to Villains After Hours is the Villains Cursed Caravan. This is a small parade of some other favorite villains. Gaston, Cruella, Oogie Boogie and others make their way around the park at 10:30 and 11:45. A fun tip is to watch the first stage show and immediately turn to find a spot for this caravan.
There’s a really fun DJ and dance party at the castle throughout the night. It was a fun way to let loose and wait for the stage show.

We had such an amazing time at Villains After Hours. It was a really fun experience and we would definitely go again. The crowds were very light and the entertainment was amazing. The added villains made it really special in comparison to a regular After Hours event. If you’re wanting to visit the Magic Kingdom and not worry about long wait times and maybe get away from the heat of the day this is an event you would love. The park really felt empty and the atmosphere was so much fun.
Don’t forget to say farewell to your favorite villains on the way out. They were hilarious and ended the night on a plus.
