Disney World makes its Villains party an upcharge event
Written by Robert Niles
Walt Disney World Resort is bringing back its Villains party, which drew an overflow crowd to Disney's Hollywood Studios last year. However, this time, Disney's taking a step toward containing the crowd level by making the party a hard-ticket event.Tweet

This year's "Villains Unleashed" party will run one night, August 23. Tickets will go on sale to the public June 9 via disneyworld.com and will cost $67 plus tax for adults, $62 for kids ages 3-9. WDW annual passholders and Disney Vacation Club members can book now and should gave received that information via email. (If you didn't, the numbers to call are 407-939-1933 for AP'ers and 800-800-9800 for DVC members.)
According to Disney publicity, the event will feature "up close encounters with some of the most popular Disney villains, “Hades Hangout & Dance Party,” “Oogie Boogie’s Variety Show,” a Star Wars villain zone, a new “Villainy In The Skies” fireworks spectacular, a villain-inspired pre-show to “Fantasmic!”, face painting, specialty food & beverage, event merchandise and more."
One can expect that Disney's trying this as a bit of a trial, and that if the tickets sell quickly, the party might turn as a multi-night event in future years, as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Very Merry Christmas Party have grown to additional nights over the years.
So, who's going?
