Looking to take in as many Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom attractions as possible with the shortest wait times and maybe a brand-new Villains Stage Show?  Throw in some free face painting, exclusive merchandise and food offerings along with free popcorn, ice cream treats, and bottled beverages, and you have Disney’s newest after-hours event.  “Disney Villains After Hours”  The new hard tickets event runs every Thursday through August 8th 2019 (Excluding July 4th) – Check for details… tickets are $139 per person ($144 day of) and grant you access to the Magic Kingdom at 7:00pm on event night; plenty of time to catch the Happily Ever After fireworks show and get a couple of attractions in before the event starts.  Annual Passholder and DVC members get $30 off the listed price.  The event starts at 10pm until 1am; you’ll get the shortest wait times you have ever experienced – and you can experience special villains themed overlays at Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean.  With over 20 attractions open, the only attractions with a wait time longer than 5 minutes were Pirates (15), Space (20) and Mine Train (15) so the only real question is, where do you start?   In addition to the free snacks, specialty food and beverages could be found through the park.      Maleficent the Dragon was roaming the parade route throughout the night, and the castle stage was taken over by Disney Villains with the new “Villains Unite the Night” castle stage show,  and that’s this episode of SamsDisneyDiary – Disney Villains Unite the Night
