Tips for making the most of the Villains Unleashed Event


Vehicle Entry and Parking
- Guests arriving by car for Villains Unleashed should come through the Main Auto Plaza, the south entrance located off US-192 and World Drive. The satellite entrance (across from the Hess station) will be closed for this event.

Arrive Early - The party starts at 8 p.m., but guests with an event ticket can enter the park as early as 5 p.m.

Kick Off The Party At Hades Hangout - The fun begins at 8 p.m. at Hades Hangout as he summons the villains for the night's festivities.

Meet Characters - Villains available for character greetings will have established queues with posted appearance times. There will be separate queues for each villain, so you can be sure of meeting the one you want. Characters will NOT be signing autographs but will be handing out special autographed cards.

Guardians of the Galaxy - be sure to duck into Stage 5 in the Animation Courtyard with your fellow Terrans, where the "Guardians of the Galaxy" Awesome Mix Tape Dance Party promises to be the hottest spot this side of Knowhere with an out-of-this-world DJ and other surprises. Plus, you never know when Star-Lord and his infamous teammate, Gamora, might crash the party to retrieve his prized cassette!

Fantasmic! - Arrive early so you don't miss the pre-show with the Night Crawlers (starts at 9:35 p.m.).

Villains Unleashed - More Event Details

Disney has released more specific details about the Villains Unleashed event on August 23rd at Disney's Hollywood Studios.


Hades Hangout - The party kicks off at 8 p.m. at the main event stage, where hosts Hades, Megara, Pain and Panic are killing 'em with comedy. They're joined throughout the night by the Underworld Dancers, DJ Igg Nite, live music from Bernie Briquette and Brimstone, and a rogues gallery of roaming rottens, from the Queen of Hearts and Sheriff of Nottingham to the Big Bad Wolf and Captain Hook.

Villains Dominion - For this one special night, the Streets of America area of the park will be swarming with baddies. Here, you'll have the opportunity to meet favorites like Cruella De Vil, Jafar, Dr. Facilier and Gaston, along with more rarely seen baddies such as Shan Yu from "Mulan," Bowler Hat Guy from "Meet the Robinsons," or Captain Gantu and Dr. Hämsterviel from "Lilo & Stitch: The Series." In addition to these dedicated villain encounters, you may spot even more wandering evildoers in the area. Look for Judge Claude Frollo, Lady Tremaine, Anastasia, Drizella, and more!

The Dark Side - During "Villains Unleashed," the area around Star Tours - The Adventures Continue becomes a wretched hive of scum and villainy, the place to find nefarious bounty hunter Boba Fett, Sith apprentice Darth Maul, and the ultimate villain - Darth Vader! And that's not all! Wandering the area, you'll stumble upon more malcontents from that galaxy far, far away: Zam Wessel, Aurra Sing, Asajj Ventress, Jango Fett, Greedo, Jawas, and others.

Villainous Encounters - Visit Stage 4 (where The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow attraction is seen during the day), and you can "Parlay" with the one and only Hector Barbossa. And just around the corner in the Animation Courtyard is where you'll discover a bit of the Moors, where you can have an audience with the mistress of all evil, Maleficent!

Oogie Boogie's Freaky Funhouse Show - Over on Sunset Boulevard, Theater of the Stars presents a production of extreme performances, hosted by the original master of scare-monies, Oogie Boogie. It's an all-new show that's sure to thrill!

Fantasmic! - Strolling up Sunset Boulevard, a gang of villainous henchmen, known as the Night Crawlers, tempt you to join them for a special pre-show to the evening's performance of Fantasmic!, itself a celebration of the power and intrigue of some of the greatest Disney villains.

"Villainy in the Sky" Fireworks - Ultimately, Hades summons Maleficent to the main event stage to close things out with a devilishly dazzling display of pyrotechnics!

And there's more! You can get a Villains ExScream Makeover with complimentary face painting at stations around Echo Lake, join in on one of the dance parties taking place in the park, and enjoy a wicked cabaret atmosphere - not to mention some delectable, small-plate menu items - at Club Evil in the Hollywood Brown Derby.
