Actual dates for Villains After Hours at the Magic Kingdom this summer

Disney Villians After Hours coming to the Magic Kingdom Summer 2019

Disney has released additional details for the new Villains After Hours event coming to the Magic Kingdom this summer including the actual dates for each event.  Here’s the details:

On 10 nefarious nights from June 6 to August 8, 2019, some fiendish faces will emerge from the shadows to take center stage at Disney Villains After Hours! Be among the limited number of Guests to attend this unique, 3-hour experience at Magic Kingdom Park.

During a Disney Villains After Hours event, you can:

  • Enjoy access to more than 20 popular Magic Kingdom attractions with low wait times—and discover surprising, villain-inspired additions at Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain.
  • Boogie down at Cinderella Castle––the villains’ entertainment hub for the evening! Here, you can experience Villains Unite the Night, an all-new stage show featuring Hades, Jafar, Dr. Facilier and more.
  • Get your camera ready for some sinister selfies with the Maleficent Dragon parade float, which will make its way through the park several times—breathing fire at night for the first time ever!
  • Bask in the ghastly glow of loathsome lighting with a backdrop of malevolent music as you creep through the park.
  • Treat yourself to villains-themed food and beverage offerings—such as Hades Nachos and the Not-So-Poison Apple Cupcake—and event-exclusive, limited merchandise available for purchase at the event.

Ever driven to stand out in their unpredictable and audacious fashion, the Villains will be entertaining Guests in the Villains Unite the Night show; however, they will not be participating in Character greetings during the event.

Ice Cream, Popcorn & Select Beverages Included
In addition to the themed snacks available for purchase, you can satisfy those late-night cravings with ice-cream novelties, popcorn and select bottled beverages—included in the cost of admission. These sinfully delicious snacks will be available at carts stationed throughout the park.

Show Off Your Sinister Side
You’re welcome to come dressed for the occasion in attire inspired by your favorite Disney villain. Just be sure to follow our dress code and costume guidelines.

  1. We are going Mid-late July, and had planned to go to MK both Thursday evenings of 18th and 25th. Now seeing these are Villain after hours days. Since ppl who go to that can get in at 7:00, does it lead to big increase in crowds those days for folks there before 10pm close? (Wanting to see if I should try to switch plans)

  2. They are doing a DVC event at AK on July 18th. Are they really having 2 special events at different parks on the same night? Grrrrrrr!! Now I cant decide which to go to!

  3. Do you know if any of the other parks will be offering after hours nights during the summer ? Thank you for all your info and Disney knowledge

  4. We are planning one day at Magic Kingdom either July 17th or 18th. Up until now the 18th was our preferred day. Does this even change our planning? Is the 18th still the better day to attend?
