Unleash the VillainsDisney’s dastardly villains are ready to unleash some Limited Time Magic at Disney Parks on September 13 — Friday the 13th..

The hub of the villains’ festivities will be staged “dead” center of Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Hades’ Hangout – the hottest club north of the Underworld.

The “Lord of the dead,” Hades, will host spine-tingling fun while his henchmen, dancers, interactive DJ and hot house band keep the nighttime activities on fire.  Hades’ 13 devilish Disney brutes will be waiting in Villain Encounters surrounding Hades’ Hangout for greetings and autographs with guests.

To celebrate the imminent arrival of the midnight witching hour “Villainy in the Sky” will set the sky ablaze with spectacular fireworks, and keep the party going until the 13th hour.

It’s all happening for a limited time only from 8 p.m. – 1 a.m. on Friday, September 13, 2013 as part of Limited Time Magic at Disney Parks.

“Disney Villains such as Maleficent, Dr. Facilier and the Evil Queen wait with eerie anticipation as a night of mischief approaches. On Friday Sept. 13, 2013 Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort will remain open until the 13th hour (1 a.m.) as the Disney villains are unleashed as part of the Disney Parks Limited Time Magic. The one-night-only event “Unleash the Villains” will include special meet and greets and a dance party hosted by an evil ensemble.”


On this spooktacular evening, villains will take over Disneyland as well. Town Square is transformed for the party where guests may see villains like Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, Judge Frollo and Lady Tremaine.  Cobwebs and vines, Halloween-themed projections, lighting effects and an eerie fog set the tone for the evening.  Witches and warlocks will get the dance party started, spinning a mix of upbeat Halloween tunes and Disney-friendly Top 40 hits.

Later in the evening, the twisted celebration spills over to New Orleans Square Train Station with lurking Disney villains ready for the Unleash the Villains Dance Party featuring a lit-up dance floor and raised platforms, spooky décor and lighting effects.  A mischievous station master DJ conducts this party — announcing the arrival of a different ghoulish Disney villain at the 13th minute after every hour.  Villains will be on the prowl after dusk for photo ops and character greetings, plus a few special surprises.

  1. Happy B-lated birthday to the best pirate Kenny!! Sorry for copying u but i just ordered the red character finder shirt u wear on your site.I like the red tee alot it stands out.Hopefully i get it by sept 12th so i can wear it to the villains party and hope Hades approves of it.

  2. Do you know if there is a separate ticket required for the Hollywood Studios event or will a standard one day ticket/annual pass be enough to get in?

  3. Thank you SO much! This is just the information I was hoping for! We really appreciate all you do and count us in for the meet-up! Been following you for a while and it’d be great to meet you in person! We’d love to get a picture with THE Kenny the Pirate, lol! :-)

  4. Great news kenny but i hope out of the 13 villains there will be some rare villains that we dont see every single year at the mnsshp.It seems like its gonna be easy villains.I know all us villain fans really want to see some rare villains such as shan yu,bowler hat guy,stromboli,old hag,and hades.I hope there will be some rare treats!

  5. I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!! My sister and I are flying in just for the party…9/12-9/15 from NY! Count me in for that meetup !!!

  6. Kenny, I hope you’re planing on going! I would love to hear how it all goes down. I really hope for everyone’s sake they are very well organized!! Thanks for the updates.

  7. So does this confirm that they’ll actually be doing meet/greet during the event? Do you think it may be like a Star Wars weekend event where they’re scattered throughout the main area? Thanks for your time and help.

    • It confirms that some will offer meets, but doesn’t confirm yet that all will meet. We’ll see as the event draws closer. They will probably be scattered around, but not as much as SWW. More like the Villains Bash last year
